Watch Your Wallet Sign

How the scam works:

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.
