Low crime does not mean no crime.

If thieves wondered around in a black and white shirt, raccoon like mask and a bag with swag written on it, they would soon be caught The best thieves dont look like one.

Time to read the small print on the household insurance.

That sucks! Unfortunately professional thieves come in all shapes and sizes, look perfectly respectable and often work in pairs - one to distract you while the other does the deed. Did you look around the area afterwards and report it to mall security and police? Professional thieves, versus an opportunist, usually get rid of the bag very fast and just take your cash, sometimes phone and cards. You might get the IC and other personal stuff back if you're lucky - when something similar happened to my other half, thieves took laptop but dumped the bag in a toilet bin - bag also contained substantial amount of cash and phone which, thankfully, they missed and was found and returned by cleaning staff.

Isn't that self-evident? :P

Equalizer, you mean you SAW the guy eyeing your wife's handbag the first time he walked by, and did nothing about it? That's a double mistake - to leave it in plain sight and easy reach in the first place, then ignore a warning sign. I'm sorry about the inconvenience caused but really...

Any woman worth her handbag would know to loop the strap around her arm in a public place, secure it on her lap under the table while eating, hide it from sight in an obscure unreachable corner, or grip it under her armpit (not my style but I've noticed it being done and it works - who in his right mind would want to steal from there?!)

In the UK they have special secure handbag clips fitted to the underside of bars and tables.

He suddenly disappeared? Did he run, walk away or vanish?

I'm not sure that fingering strangers in front of the police is a good idea - actions like this should be done in the privacy of a sleazy hotel

Shocking

Postby IdealD » Thu, 22 Jan 2009 12:39 pm

Oh my goodness! Sorry about the theft. Guys like that give us angmohs a bad name.

Thanks for the advice on how to be more security conscious!

The guy was probably a tourist....I'd hate to think it was an expat working here...

You're shitting us, aren't you?

Give 'us' a bad name? Good grief, get a grip.

If the US army killing thousands in Iraq or Ausralia's treatment of the Aborigenes or any number of major issues isn't already doing that then I think one whitey nicking, supposedly, something is fairly low on the pecking order.
