Compassion Techniques

This is when pickpockets rely on the marks compassion for others to allow them to make the lift. It's an extremely dangerous and deceitful form and hard to spot.

Some pickpockets play on compassion in their distractions. They "accidentally" drop change or shopping bags on the ground so that someone will stop to help them. While the mark is kneeling on the ground with the first pickpocket, another member of the team steals his or her wallet. At the beach, one member of the team may pretend to be in trouble in the water. When the mark runs in to help out, another member of the team walks off with whatever the mark has left on the beach.

Distraction Techniques

Human beings usually focus their attention on one thing, so if you give them anything interesting to focus on, they won't pay attention to their money and valuables.

In the pickpocketing world, distraction can get pretty elaborate. Two members of a team might stage a fight while the third member takes advantage of the inattentive crowd. Child pickpockets may try to show something to a mark, like a drawing or a toy, while other children sneak up from behind. Another common trick is to surreptitiously spray someone with bird droppings, or a convincing facsimile, and then offer to help clean it off.

Another common distraction techniques is sex - the use of a young attractive men or women to avert the attention on to the mark, focusing the thoughts on him/her.  An example may be an attractive woman, usually pretending to be drunk, will touch an unsuspecting man affectionately, and lift his wallet or watch while he's distracted, also psychologically it seems that attractive people are less likely to be suspected of a small crime, due to their looks the mark wants to believe it they aren't involved, and without knowing it they convince themselves their innocent.

Ops, Sorry

This is a classic technique, and this usually requires the pickpocket spilling something (usually hot) on the mark.  In the pretense of helping the mark clean themselves, the pickpocket is provided an excellent opportunity to take the mark's wallet or other valuables.

Bully

In this case te Pickpocket will of course "accidentally" knock off the marks glasses, suitcase, hat, or anything else.  This will serve to both infuriate and disorient the victim, so will wallet can easily be lifted.
