On the Internet, a visitor to the Christmas market is causing astonishment with his surprising idea. He wants to make pickpockets look stupid.
Munich – The Christmas season is a boom for pickpockets. They take advantage of the crowds of Christmas markets to seize their opportunities. The inattention of the victims and perhaps one or two too many Christmas punches often make it comparatively easy for them to strike. However, a Christmas market visitor was determined to trick the thieves – with a bait.
Against pickpockets at the Christmas market – note trick is simple, but ingenious
Just like the annual warnings of the police, the scams of pickpockets are also repeated. They distract the Christkindlmarkt visitors in conversations or soil them with ketchup to reach into their pockets when wiping.
A man has come up with a mean but simple plan to play a trick on the thieves. Via X, he shared it with the Internet community. "I'm going to the Christmas market tonight with an old purse in my back pocket, nicely stuffed with paper. Too bad I can't see the face," he wrote. To take it to the extreme, he hid a message between the notes. "Bad luck," was written on a piece of paper, among other things.
X-users are thrilled by the note trick of the Christkindlmarkt visitor
He did not let the public know how the visit to the Christmas market ended with the note trick. Nevertheless, he received attention and encouragement for his ingenious idea. Commentators agreed that this is a great idea.
As funny as the man's handling of the situation is, the danger at the Christmas market should not be underestimated. That's why the police always give citizens suitable tips at Christmas time. If you go to the Christmas market, you shouldn't have too much money in your pockets. Mobile phones, wallets and the like should only be taken with you when they are needed. But criminals are not only to be found at the Christmas market. In the case of an elderly lady, thieves pretended to be craftsmen in order to steal from her.
