Follow our tips and stay alert, to stop those purse grabbing thieves from getting their claws on your valuables:
• Don’t leave your bag unattended in a shopping trolley, on a table, or even at the checkout. Thieves can be very quick!
• Keep your bag zipped up, so thieves can’t see what is in it.
• Wear your bag across your chest so it can’t be pulled from your shoulder.
• Consider attaching bells to your purse or phone so it makes a noise if it is removed, or attach them to your bag with a strap making it difficult to remove.
