I HOPE this letter will act as a warning to readers to take special care of their personal belongings.

I had my leather bag stolen while shopping in Times Square last month.

I was deeply upset and urge shoppers to take extreme care when they put their bag beside them when trying on clothes. It is very frustrating to have to replace all your credit cards and bank cards, not to mention the sadness one feels at losing things which are of sentimental value and can never be replaced.
