Step 4: Don't be flashy

If you're advertising your own prosperity with fur coats and gold chains, you're basically saying to potential thieves: "I'm worth robbing." You might know your wallet is empty, but thieves don't, and they're going to go for it. You don't have to dress like a slob, of course; just avoid blatantly high-ticket items. It's especially important to use understated luggage. Designer bags are generally no sturdier than generic brands, and they attract more roving eyes.
