Traveller tales are aplenty - mostly good stories (fortunately) but once in a while you get someone who has suffered some inconvenience or other while holidaying in a foreign land.
I have friends with tales of pouch being taken right under his nose at the airport; pickpocketed on the very first day of a Europe trip; pants pocket being slashed open and money taken. All these happened without anyone of them realising it until later. Unnerving episodes these if one should fall prey to any one of them.
Security experts say a little extra effort in safeguarding your belongings, turns off the scammers who are always there looking for easy prey.
The following is an old video but worth viewing if you haven't. I won't spoil it for you. Just watch the video. Better be safe than sorry holds true..
Have you had any experience with any property loss while travelling?
