And the cool scams I have heard of. 🙂 Before you go to strange/new places, you should do yourself some research to keep your butt safe. That Is what I am doing. ^-^
One scam, I thought it was genius, is sort of focused towards men, but a great one all the same. The general idea is to steal money, and this is how they do it. A couple of guys will walk up to you, act very kind, and invite you to a bar. When you get there, there will be fun and girls and a good group of people, and the bartender will associate you with them. Them, they will leave and make you pay, or threaten you to pay or else. I love this one. I am going to turkey, and they seem too nice to do this, but it impresses me for some odd reason.
Another simple one that I liked was the salesman that says that something is on sale and will never be like that again. XD And they way over price it! If you are a dumb American, as most of us are, not knowing the general pricing range for everything can make you an easy target. I know that even Alaska does it to the tourists. i.e. Salmon. I have NEVER payed for salmon before in my life. A skimpy plate of salmon sells for $40 or more!
I was just talking to a fellow blogger, and I have a petty scam I will pull. ^-^ I will ask for boots for trial, and then send them back. I WILL USE THE BOOTS FOR PICTURES, AND THEN BOOT THEM!!! TROLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! (Excuse the pun.)
