We have already spoken several times about the care that we take when we travel, especially to the outside world. Cultural differences, language barriers, and the attitude is more relaxed, the tourists will encourage some of the criminals, especially pickpockets (pickpockets).

Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world, and it has been the subject of a real gang of pickpockets who operate in the underground and in the vicinity of sights such as the Eiffel Tower.

The subject matter is so serious that it up to a special TV show about pickpockets on the metro in Paris has already been done. Even the beeps notifying you of the actions of the perpetrators can be heard on the stations and inside the train, but, of course, always in French, which may not be as effective for people who do not speak the language.

Be careful of groups of young girls

Usually the pickpockets are acting as a group, mostly composed of children under the age of the female. A few of them to distract the tourist, while the other to steal cell phones and wallets, without the person being aware of it.

But don't you think it's easy to recognize the criminal. In this article, they are in the teens dressed up and pretending to be tourists and ask for help for any question related to the environment, or they ask for your signature on some of the manifesto.

The only thing that is good is that there is something great about being robbed is that it is not the use of violence, and the groups disperse at the first sign of what the victim is going to react, or to call the police.

On one occasion, at a picnic in the gardens next to the Eiffel Tower with a group of girls came up and tried to strike a blow. The method of attack is to surround yourself with tourists (we were a couple) and ask for a signature, or (for that matter) with a glass of wine.

We worked in English and in French) to call the Police. What was the result? They walked away at a rapid pace.
