We visit Paris every year and this is the worst we've seen for gangs of pickpockets haunting the riverbank and tourist attractions. The latest dodge is to stop a tourist and suggest they've dropped a coin or a gold ring. While you are talking to them the rest of the gang (nicely dressed teenage girls) come up and steal your bag. We saw police towing cars away nearby but taking no notice of the gangs at all. Another dodge was some sort of petition for the blind and deaf on the Pont Neuf.
