Unfortunately Pickpockets & Scammers are popular in the major tourist attractions all over the world! It's nice to carry cash to save on ATM fees, but you MUST keep it hidden. Have your cash, cards or passport stolen is a devastating experience and can leave you stranded!
This Money belt has 2 compartments which conceals your money so no one can see it. You simply strap it around your waist and then put your shirt over it. This is different than a bulky fanny pack which screams “STEAL ME”.
Insider Story: A Friend of mine was Solo Backpacking in south America and actually got held up at Knifepoint on a train. She emptying just $50 from her pocket and had the rest concealed in her money belt! It saved her ASS.
RFID, “Card Skimming Scam”: Many scammers are now using card readers to touch on your wallet or purse while on a train or bus in order to extract your credit card details. Luckily this belt contains RFID protection.
Price: This is higher quality hidden money belt with RFID protection, but it only costs $16…definitely a worthwhile investment.
