Getting Robbed in Italy

Jump to last reply

In Italy they have perfected steeling from tourist to a fine art.
It is not IF you will be robbed but how soon after you get there it will happen.
We went with a group of 15 couples. My wife had her purse snatch out of our car as we were driving, one man had his wallet stolen another couple the lady had her purse taken right off her shoulder bus a person on a motor scooter.. So 15 couples and three were robbed.

You only need to go online and type in "robbed in italy" to see the dozens of web site with comments from people who went there and were robbed..

We reported our incident to the Police - That was a complete waste of time. the majority of police do not speak English and most of them do not really care about helping you..

There are many other nicer places to visit where you will be safer..
