Mark me down as a victim also of about 300 Euros and all my credit cards. I was pickpocketed with my wallet deep in my Front Cargo pocket after boarding metro at Pireaus. I had just bragged a few days before to my wife that there was no way a pick pocket could get my wallet out of my front pocket without me knowing it. I never felt a thing. There were two of them, one distracted me to the left while the one on the right where my billfold was located picked my pocket. They exited at the first exit, Filero I believe is the name of it. I Realized at the next exit my wallet was gone and Told my wife I just had my Billfold stolen. The only money(and this was American Dollars) and Credit Card We had left was in her purse which was attached to the Top of her Luggage Bag. Not 20 minutes later we exited the Metro VIA the Escalator, she had her luggage on step beside her with purse between her leg and luggage. And just happened to glance behind her she saw a hand quickly draw away from her purse. She screamed at the Guy, Who Quickly yelled I did Nothing. I had just stepped out on top of escalator and wasn't sure what had happened when she yelled at me, He just Tryed to Steal my Billfold out of my purse which was half unzipped, By this time The guy had passed her and made a wide circle around me and took off running, With me hollering for him to stop. Fortunately she spotted him before he had her Billfold or we would have really been in trouble.
We were now at the end of the Metro line which was about 5 miles from our Hotel we had reserved in Glyfada at 4Pm with No Euros. I had planned to take a Taxi from here to our hotel but the Taxi Drivers would not take our American Money. The Bright side of this Story comes now. I walked up to a Kiosk and told the Man working there what had just happened with my money being stolen and ask for directions to Glyfada and how far a walk was it. He said It is to far and two hot for you to walk from here to Glyfada and Immediately give me two bus Tickets and Told me the number of the Bus I needed to get on. He was a Real Lifesaver. I couldn't thank him enough, just wish I would have gotten his address so I could have Repaid him.
These Pick Pockets are Good!! I have traveled extensively the Last few Years and didn't think it could happen to me. Don't take any Chances, I recommend a good comfortable Money Belt under your clothes. I just ordered 2 for my Wife and I.
