Checked Luggage Is Like a Candy Shop for Airport Workers
Planning a vacation can be expensive with hotel costs, place ticket expenses and even checked bags, so it's even worse when you find that you also lost money on items stolen out of your bag by airport employees!

If this theft does happen to you, file a police report and a claim with TSA, but just to be safe, store your valuables in your carry-on or just leave them at home!
