Handbag Theft

Handbag thieves are quick and efficient, even having time to zip up your handbag so you don’t know that your purse has gone until you get to the checkout.
If your bag or purse is stolen you could not only lose your cash but also be a victim of identity theft and credit card theft.
  • Dont carry all of your cards and identification together
  • Always have your bag in sight and keep it closed. Don't get distracted
  • Carry your bag at all times with the strap across your body
  • If someone does try to grab your purse or your handbag do not try to stop them. Let it go and call the police immediately.
