The attached link is another great article on pickpockets and it is not going away for travelers but changing. What I mean about changing is that we carry less cash but we rely so much on credit cards and smart phones. Our electronic information can be stolen with radio frequency (RF) and the best way to protect you is with a money belt and or simply added aluminum foil to protect your credit cards and smart phones. Recently one of my customers loved my innovative money belt that they could fit their smart phone which was a smart idea. My money belt has RFID protection. Many credit cards now have the RF chip in them and I recently received new credit cards and they have the RFID chip without requesting the chip.
Pickpockets are the number one crime against travelers. We think it will not happen to us but it is easier to get pickpocket now because everyone is always looking at their phone and are total distracted which is the method used by pickpockets, distraction!
