Here's a more positive phenomenon to all of us suffering from the economic crisis.
Former pickpockets in London have apparently turned over a new leaf and instead of taking money out of unsuspecting victims, they are now slipping money back!
Anything from 5 pounds ($8) to 20 pound notes are given out to unguarded pockets or open handbags in Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and other busy spots.
"Every time I put money back in someone's pocket, I feel less guilty about the fact I spent many years taking it out," said Chris Fitch, a former pickpocket who heads TalkTalk's putpocketing initiative.
This movement runs until the end of August in London before spreading out countrywide and is funded by TalkTalk, a broadband provider in hopes of brightening up people's lives.
Even London's police have been briefed about the plan, which will see at least 100,000 pounds given away.
