I have been to Paris 3 times – twice I met with crime: once I was pickpocketed in the Metro, and the other time 2 men and 1 women tried to pretend they were the police and wanted to push my husband and I into a doorway. This was by the Seine on a Sunday morning. We were staying just off George V, so it wasn't as though it was a bad part of town. I have been to all 7 continents on earth and lived in a few cities, and the only place I have ever encountered crime was Paris. I would never take my Hermes overseas, especially not Paris. If you are Asian (people keep thinking we are Japanese, but we would never pass for Japanese in Asia), you are automatically a target already.
