Why do tourists become careless?

Tourists robbed, burglaries, pocket thieves, yes, we have all of these ugly experiences. But why are some tourists so careless? Visitors drove up to Pic Paradis, the highest peak on the island, parked their car, left everything inside including $10,000 !!! And some thieves burglared the car. Terrible!
Would you park your car with all these valuables at NY's Central Park, or in Paris, or in Amsterdam ...? Most people wouldn't, but why do they forget about all the security basics, when being here? And these people had been here 20 times before! Difficult to believe, how somebody can neglect or disregard all warnings!

We know of people, who leave their credit cards inside the car, we saw suitcases on backseats of cars being parked for hours, saw handbags on beaches with nobody close by, travel bags sitting unattended in front of hotels, and there are people, who have much less, who decided to go the easy way of committing crimes, and they take the opportunity. Dear visitors, don't create opportunities, nowhere, the world is not perfect, and certainly this island is a melting pot with a share of criminals lurking for these opportunities. More about the island,
here, and here!
