Cardboard Signs as a Distraction

Postby KOVAKS on Wed Sep 17, 2008 12:05 pm

Contributed by Nathan Treloar:

I was with my wife and two year old daughter about to enter a bank on Via Laietana to change money when two slim, somewhat bedraggled women in their 30's or 40's approached me mumbling a lot of Spanish (Catalan?) that I didn't understand. They were holding cardboard signs with some writing, probably saying something like "Please help...hungry...". Fortunately, I remembered that these signs serve another purpose. Pickpockets will sometimes thrust signs at you with one hand while the other hand rifles through your bags underneath. I quickly brushed them off, but not before one of them managed to partially unzip the small bag holding my camera. Luckily she didn't get anything.
