    Basically I was on way home I was thirsty from cycling so decided to lock my bike up get my purse out to get drink and snack from a shop but then I noticed I didn’t have my purse when I got to the till and I did have it when I got in. I went back and it wasn’t there so I asked at till and someone handed it in but when I checked my bank card was only thing in it and i remember having cash notes on the purse st college lunch time. The staff member did check CCTV did eventually find when I dropped it and who picked it up but you couldn’t see that persons hand from angle of camera.
    So I have a feeling the person who found it stole the money out my purse. The staff member did say he’ll check CCTV again and if he finds anything he’ll call me.
    Ps there’s nothing i can do to get my cash back which is annoying (if there is a way please mention as it was quite a bit of money in cash but not a huge amount)

    get a waistpack. It's harder to get pickpocketed when you are literally wearing your cash and carbs. And make that a front pack, not a back pack

    yesterday didnt get pick pocketed i dropped my purse or it fell out of my pocket the woman who handed it must of stolen it out of my purse and left the bank card on purpose so she can't get tracked :(. and that mentioning about a pack wouldn't work as it would get in the way off cycling.

    The pack I was talking about is something that wouldn't interfere with biking. The front kind is worn under clothing and the back version under clothing a jacket or coat. One uses this instead of a purse or backpack. The word backpack was inserted by moderators who think that what I was describing is called in the US and many other countries comprises some nasty meaning in the UK.

    I went to Amazon.uk, not to be confused with the US version. Evidently, the UK terminology for what I was describing as more pocket pickable is a bum bag or waist pack. What I was describing as safer is a money belt or running belt or undercover hidden pocket

    Backpack
    in the US is something huge worn over shoulders

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Backpacks-Luggage/s?ie=UTF8&me=A2OAJ7377F756P&page=1&rh=n:2644625031

    The word starting with the letter F and ending in the letter Y that got censored is actually in US English a cute word for the body parts involved. The UK evident equivalent, bum, is consider inappropriate in polite American English

    Hi @Lulu9101112 ,

    Have you considered trying a chained wallet like the one pictured below?

    Though, retro mid 1990s. I've not lost a wallet yet!

    Hope this helps.

    @Contralto , you were probably referring to a lumbar pack?

    One of these...
