With the Christmas shopping season upon us, these types of crimes will increase. Ladies: you can avoid becoming a victim by never leaving your purse unattended – not even for a moment. Thieves, like this, look for quick opportunities where purses are briefly left behind. Crooks often strike when you go to refill your drink, or when you take your eyes off of your purse in a shopping cart to reach for something on a store shelf.
