07:29 pm: the number 29 bus has claimed my wallet (and 35 quid) for the second time in a year. grrrrrrrrrrr. almost certainly stolen, right out of my bag.

cancelled card. reported it to the met (unlike last time, when I couldn't be bothered). bastards. i was looking forward to a nice relaxing evening and now there is all this stress.

oh dear. were you pickpocketed?
if you have a crime number from the police the banks are quicker about giving you money back if they use your card...

yeah. it was in my bag, and now it's not.

i reported it on the online crime reporting thing and will hopefully get crime number soon. card was cancelled within 10 minutes of the theft.

really could do without this. *sigh*

poor you. i got pickpocketed (or 'dipped' i think it is when it's from a bag) round finsbury park on the tube, what a pain. actually the thing that went on longer was that direct debits kept getting set up on my account, cos all you need is bank details and a forged signature. so maybe keep an eye out for those for the next few months. i think i reported it to the Transport Police rather than the Met.

:-( that sucks. I used to get the 29 a lot.

Might be a stupid idea but have you thought about getting a chain on your (next)wallet so you can attach it to your jeans/inside of your bag?

Yeah, I think I'll do that. Also: avoiding the 29, and trying to be more careful about watching what people are doing on it.

Horrible.

My mother lost her purse and £100 a few months ago: the policeman said about a dozen people reported being pickpocketed that day. It seems a whole team had descended on the town en-masse for one day.

I always keep valuables in zip-up or buttoned down pockets. But that's because I'm cycling and I don't want my things to be scattered all over the road if I take a spill. But I know that's not always possible.

Perhaps we should just have wallets with small Claymore mines, that can be detonated under remote control once we doscover they're missing.
