Pickpockets are thieves who steal items (often wallets or passports, sometimes other valuables) from people's clothing and bags as they walk in a public place. Pickpocketing is a very old crime that is continually being reinvented. Pickpockets are a hazard in nearly any tourist destination. After all, tourists, by definition, have disposable income, and are likely to be carrying some money and/or valuables.
This article covers only pickpockets, not the various other crimes that may be committed against travellers. See Common scams for some of them.
