Pickpocket Paranoia

There is entirely too much emphasis on pickpockets and scams. Wear your money belt or some other truly secure way of carrying you money and credit cards and don't worry about it. Read about the scams and short changers and then pay attention. I just returned from the 21 days in Europe tour. We saw only a couple of people who looked suspicious and nobody in our group had any problems.
A few petition passers, plenty of beggars, but nothing hard to deal with. Don't let worry about something that is easily preventable affect your trip.
