Pickpockets spend $11,628 in an hour.
From the December, 2009 issue
Rebecca's black Coach bag had a stuck zipper, so she didn't close it as she shopped at Kohl's one weekday morning. A pickpocket took the opportunity to steal her Visa and bank cards. In the hour before she realized they were gone, the cards were used to make $11,628 in purchases--two MacBook Pros at the Apple Store in Briarwood and a pair of expensive cameras at Best Buy. She reported the theft in time to thwart an attempt to buy six iPods at Target.
