Precautions in Copenhagen...
in crowded areas!
- Trick Thieves and Con Men!
Like in any other Capital City or Metropolitan
areas - Copenhagen has it’s problems
with professional pickpockets
and cynical trick thieves
that mainly target Visitors
and Tourists - and are
spread all over the city with their criminal
activities. Even though Copenhagen records
a very low crime rate
- and is a quite safe place to be and
live - pocket thieves operate in crowded
tourist areas - where the risk of being
a victim for these sneaky criminals
is higher on the Pedestrian Street “Strøget”
- and the area around the Central
Station and in
S-Trains - as well as Cinemas
- Cafés - Restaurants
- Tivoli and Public
Transportation etc.. So be careful
with your personal belongings and always
use your common sense.
If any attempt - you should immediately
contact the police.
Warning! - Warning! - Warning!
Many trick thieves
and con men cross the
Danish boarders - and enter the city especially
in the summer months of May -
June - July - August and September
- and especially at Christmas
Time - with the intention of
operating with their criminal
and nasty inventiveness
- especially and particularly at over-packed
areas that are flourishing with tourists
and cruise passengers.
Take especially good care of your bag
- wallet - cell-phone - iPhone - camera
- jewellery - wrist watch - and anything
else of value - and never
carry more than DKK 100-200
with you - as there are ATMs
everywhere. So be careful with your personal
belongings - and always use your common
in the City - and your Practical Sense!
Many beggars from abroad
have found a safe haven in Copenhagen
- and especially in crowded areas - where
they make a fortune every day - all year
round - on the behalf of naive
foreigners and tourists
- which is an annoying element for the
police - shop
owners and Copenhageners.
We advise you not to encourage these wealthy
beggars with quite a fortune
in their baggage and back in their homeland
- by giving them any money - as we want
them chased out of the city
- as fast as possible. So be careful with
your personal belongings beside these
immoral crooks - and always use your practical
sense according to the situation.
Contact the police immediately
if you are harassed by any suspect or
other criminal elements.
ATM Machines - and Credit Card Fraud!
Protect your PIN code - when
you use the ATM machines
in Copenhagen - and avoid fraud
from strangers behind you. Always look
over your shoulder before beginning the
transaction. Be suspicious of strange
devices on ATM machines - if
any doubt - report it immediately. Keep
in mind - that there are criminal
elements in every city around
the world - so always protect your PIN
code at ATM machines and other
places - when using your credit card -
and remember your credit card
and money after every
Backpacks in front
It is recommended - even though
it may be a bit inconvenient - that all
persons wearing and carrying any type
of backpacks - with their
private documents - personal belongings
- money - credit cards - electronic gadgets
and devices etc. should move their
backpacks in front -
if there are any kind of valuables in
& restaurant buffets
at hotel and restaurant buffets - it is
recommended that you always take your
bag or purse
with you - when you leave your table and
are up for a treat at the buffet station.
Always take your handbag with you - when
you depart your seat.
boarders in Denmark - and hordes of illegal
Its very easy
to enter Denmark - as all the Danish boarders
are open - with limited control - and
many criminals from abroad
with very dirty nails
- and hordes of illegal felons
with corrupted minds
use the free entrance to Denmark as a
Eldorado to conduct their many illegal
and lawbreaking operations plus plundering
expeditions all over the Danish nation.
That is one of many disadvantages
living in a free - open and democratic
There are many "Pirate
Taxies" in Copenhagen -
and we highly recommend you not to take
one of these - due to lack of proper
insurance and other type of legal
protection. Contact the police
immediately if you are harassed
or robbed by
these criminal drivers!
