Stealing Gold back from Trainers
I just made a new character and I can't steal the gold back from trainers anymore.
Always thought it was a funny scam.
Why doesn't this work anymore?
The silly thing is that when load saves of older characters they can still do it.

Is this intentional?

You just made a new character..? What level is the new character's pickpocket and sneak skills at?
I believe you will need to work at these skills and get them up past at least 10 or so before you will be able to steal gold back from trainers.

My pickpocket skill is 20 at the moment, which should be sufficient. At least I should be able to see it in their inventory when pickpocketing them.
However, it isn't in there.
I just befriended Faendral in Riverwood and I can't trade gold back with him either (he is an archery trainer and follower). The gold I spent for training isn't showing up in their inventory at all. (I also tried to kill him but the gold seems to be just gone completely.)

The latest version of the "Unofficial Skyrim Patch" removes the possibility to get gold back which you spent on training.
Here's a discussion:

That's odd. I had Faendral as a follower/trainer and got the gold I paid him for training back. He also started with 500 gold, so could get some lessons straight away. I never pickpocket anyone as I have not gone down that skill tree.

Obviously I don't have the patch and must say I've never needed it.

choping wood results in pockets full of money, without the need of steeling.

Well, I'm a thief and I think that money is mine. :)

Did not know you could get the gold back by pickpocketing. Got lots of gold through quests and searching each location thoroughly. There are urns and chests hidden away in the most unlikely places.
