    I kinda expected Spain. In Assassin's Creed, they give you the ability to pickpocket. XD

    I completely expected Spain and Italy.

    Both are full of pickpockets. Saw it in some documentaries.

    My country got on the list as I expected, we have in every bus a little yellow sticker on the doors saying "Beware of pickpockets" in English and Czech. [​IMG] Though there are many more ways how you can get robbed in each country. Like here I've heard (and even once seen it) that people had their things stolen from them in the metro (the subway) by foreigners who have settled here, working as a team of 2-4 people.

    No Philippines?!?!?

    Huh, interesting... As long as they don't turn around and throw it right back when they realize it's empty, right? That would be embarrassing...

    Our rates of theft are actually pretty minuscule when compared to European countries. That's probably because people here don't make a living out of it and don't really have techniques or strategies for it. Unlike there, some people actually practice and such.

    Relax, I was trolling. Still, you try going through Quiapo or other similar uber-populated and busy places, and say goodbye to your wallet. Of course, the same can be said of a lot of places.

    Liverpool not on the list... me and mine have visited most of the places on that list and they did not rate compared to Liverpool for such things.

    thought Vietnam would make it on the list my cousins say that they don't care about your well being so they ride on their motorbikes and snatch your stuff while riding pass(I have a Vietnamese background).
