To All Sailing Brides- Warning!

I just wanted to inform you all about some info I received from our baggage handler a couple weeks ago. While we were checking our bags in, our handler told us to make sure to put on your tags the following information ONLY:
Apparently some of the shadier handlers will use information on your luggage tags such as your address and phone number to rob you while you are on vacation!
He said there was a poor old lady that would come to the port every Sunday to protest, because Carnival said they were not responsible, and they cleaned her out! Just wanted to pass this information on, because it's so important! Needless to say, we spent an extra 10 minutes making sure we took off all of this info from our bags. If this helps one person, then I feel a lot better!

I might also put a phone number on there. We actually had a suitcase that got misplaced on the way to Jamaica and had we not put our phone number on the luggage, we wouldn't have gotten a call from the airline in reponse to finding the luggage!

However, I would still just put an emergency contact number (who has your itinerary) and your name & number on your luggage tags. I would also include an itinerary & your address inside your luggage so if it is lost or stolen, or the luggage tag gets taken off there is a way to get it back to you.

I only put my name and phone # (cell) on there so there's no way to trace it to my addr

Thanks for the tip.
