Paper money is slowly being replaced by electronic payments. It is definitely a very convenient solution. Instead of carrying thick wads of notes in your pockets you have a small plastic card that gives you access to all your money.
It is estimated the virtual money will replace material one very soon. Millions of people in the world are giving up paying in cash, as they find it too problematic. It’s much easier to pay by card or a cell phone.
That is why contactless cards have become so popular. Such a card is used to quickly pay just by touching a reader with it. It is incredibly convenient as you don’t have to even remember the PIN number!
The world is changing and so are the methods used by thieves. In the past, they only had to cut the bag, took out the wallet and run away. It’s different today. Of course a pickpocket can use the old method but they will find only plastic cards in the wallet. The clever thieves will know what to do with the cards and that is why they have to be very well protected.
