Throughout history, people have been the victims of the pickpockets. Today,

pickpocketing is one of the most rapidly increasing crimes. Pickpockets are increasing in

American loose money to pickpockets every year, and no one is really safe from a skilled

During the eighteenth century, pickpockets were hanged in England. Large crowds

of people would gather to watch the hanging, which was supposed to be the warning for

the other pickpockets. However, in time, this practice was discontinued. The reason: while

people attentivelly watching the hanging of a pickpocket, other pickpockets skillfully stole

the money from the spectators!

Police officials say that the most efficient pickpockets come from South America. Many

of these expert pickpockets are trained in special schools called Jingle Bells Schools. A

pickpocket graduated from J.B.S. when he is able to steal a wallet from a dressed dummy

(mannequin) that has bells inside his pockets.

places are banks, airports, race tracks, supermarkets, elevators, trains and bus stations. Oftenly,

some pickpockets are working together with other pickpockets as a partner. Another kinds

of pickpocket works outside or inside the bars and specialized in stealling from women is
