Subject: Purse Snatchers
Hello Ziners:

A friend of mine just got back from France and had a bad experience I think we should all be aware of. The country is really not important - it could happen anywhere. My friend, her mother, son and daughter-in-law were in a rental car, near an airport, stopped at a stop light. They were all very careful of their possessions while walking on the street - and never leaving anything inside a parked car. BUT - while driving, their doors were unlocked. Two guys, on foot, rushed the car, managed to get one door open, snatched my friend's mother's purse - and got away with it. I have to say that locking my car door while traveling has not occurred to me either--- A word to the wise --
