You are walking to a subway station or pass by a parking site. You see a sign. “Watch for your wallet. Pick pocketing in the area”.
Instinctively, you check to see if your wallet is OK. You might not think you're obvious, but a subtle gesture will give it away letting the pick-pockets know where you keep your wallet. They will then follow you until you get to a busy place (train station, bus stop, line-up, etc) where they can successfully operate.
How to avoid:
Don’t ever think it can’t happen to you! Protect your wallet by carrying it in your inside chest pocket.
Make your friends and family aware of this scam by sharing it, using the buttons provided.
