I have just been pickpocketed on Sat at the Zurich Railway station. l lost everything ... passport, credit cards, train tickets, cash and phone. When I went to the police post to lodge a theft report so that I can apply for an exit permit to leave the country, I saw a huge Turkish tourist who has also been just pickpocketed . While filling up the police form, another tourist couple walked in. They just arrived from France by train and found that their haversack on the overhead compartment had been stolen. Like me , they lost everything, including their laptops.
When I return to the hotel and shared my unpleasant experience , I was told that another hotel guest was also pickpocketed on Fri.
I went back to the Police Post on Sunday to clarify my report. There I bump into another pickpocket victim. This time, it is a LOCAL Swiss lady
I am sharing the severity of pickpockets in Switzerland!
