Thanks for posting this. I travel around Europe a lot and Spain has a reputation for this type of scam so the more it is publicised like this the more aware visitors will be and can take the necessary precautions.

Ignore people who say you were naive, it only takes a moment to let your guard down and these thieves are well practised and good at what they do. I have lived in big cities all my life and am "street smart" (whatever that actually means) and 10 years ago I had my briefcase stolen on a train just outside Amsterdam, like you, a momentary loss of concentration late at night but a valuable lesson learned.

I hope it didn't spoil your trip to Europe too much.
