So he knew the pin numbers? Or the broad had them written down?

I always see unattended purses in carts when I'm at the supermarket. And this one apparently had easily-discovered PIN numbers? Why make yourself a target; that bag has a handle for a reason-hang onto it! And if it's that difficult to remember 5 digits perhaps you shouldn't be out of the house; you might forget the address you came from.

So much crime on Long Island lately. If I see someone in a supermarket with an unattended handbag, I tell her. I'm shocked that a few women thought is was no big deal!!! Almost of the mentality, "not in this neighborhood"! When I'm out shopping, I use a cross body handbag. I had my handbag stolen literally in front of me one night in a Smithtown shopping center parking lot at night. I was loading up my trunk, had my handbag on my car seat and when I was done, my hand bag was stolen! Thank goodness I had the keys in the ignition warming up the car. I had just used the ATM machine inside the supermarket so I have a feeling I was being watched. I admit I was an easy target and I'm so careful to this day.
