    Yup.
    If you can make the trainer your companion it's even easier, just organize their inventory and take your money back.

    ourgh, apparently if you want to pickpocket this much gold, you need extremely high pickpocketing skills... :( which is not my case.
    Damn...

    Acually you cant pickpocket more than thousand gold even with 100 in pickpocketing i have tried it myself. You can however train 1 level if the cost is below 1000 and then pickpocket it back, and just repeat it until it costs more than 1000.

    With 100 I can pretty much pickpocket back every money I've given them :P But I've got some perks invested into it, so I've got a higher success rate than normal.

    It's REALLY easy leveling up Pickpocket. Just steal stuff from everyone till it goes up to 100 :P

    South East of Windhelm there is an Orc camp which you can't go in unless you do a quest, near the Orc camp is a Mine where you can get a decent amount of Ebony ignots. The orcs will say stuff to you in the Mine but they won't attack you.

    the quest is given to you when you get to the camp, the orc lady says "you're not getting in until you retrieve that item for us blah blah"

    Hmk, I'll check it out tomorrow. =3
    While I was on the way to that town that has the underground mine prison, Falk something I think, I found several mines with lots of golf and silver, guess I'll use it to craft more useless over-priced rings and necklaces to increase my smithing level.

    and that's when you kill them preemptively and loot their unsuspecting corpses.

    I'm going Stormcloak this playthrough, and when I complete the game/storyline I'll start with the Imperials.

    Same here, I have 100% Pickpocket skill yet I have 0% of stealing anything above 1000 gold. There is a perk you can unlock (Cutpurse) that makes stealing gold a lot easier (50% easier). I don't have it though, but maybe with this perk? If you want I can further investigate/Google it!

    I've got some more interesting info on pickpocketing skill, which is widely acknowledged as the easiest skill/way to get money:
    • If you have to bribe a guard using the Thieves Guild option (using the Bribe Perk unconfirmed), the money goes into the guard's inventory. With this technique, you can avoid getting arrested for minor crimes.
    • There seems to be a hidden value behind pickpocketing. You will have a better success rate if you only steal one item at a time. Ex: Ring, Sword, and Gold. 90% success rate each. 3/5 Attempts to steal all 3 at the same time succeed. Reopening pickpocket each time, though, was 5/5 attempts.
    • It appears that pickpocketing from different angles can change the chance of success, notably with gold values over 1000, I have gotten up to a 21% confirmed so far, unknown whether or not this is a bug.
