Top Holiday Scams - Beware of the Following:

The Room Check
Man needs to check your room's OK, but quietly puts latch on on his way out, waits till you are busy, perhaps in the shower then slips back to your room to rob you.
Single Men Only
Lost girl approaches you in street, asks for drink in nearby bar - with hefty doormen and no windows. Couple of drinks and bill comes to 100 of bucks.
The Crying Thief
Girl accused of theft undresses to her underwear, whilst gawping spectators have their pockets emptied
The Ticket Collector
Friendly person helps you get ticket on underground, but buys you a single with their card rather than what the 7 day unlimited pass you just asked and paid for
The Caring Passer-by
Bird droppings fall on your shoulder or ball hits you there, tutting passers-by come to your aid, brushing off the dust, but also clean out your pockets whilst at it.
Air of Authority
Officially dressed personnel approch you and take you to special "government" shops, for special deals only to sell you plastic gems etc
The Sob Story
Crying person asks if you speak English, shows plastic card with confusing sob story, whilst you decipher it, he accesses your pockets.
The Hire-Car Jack
You didn't spot the sly criminals eyeing you and your posessions at the hire car counter, whilst you signed the forms. A few miles down the road your tyre mysteriously bursts, some guys come to help you, helping themselves to your belongings.
Grateful Shoeshiner
You pick up a shoeshiner's brush he dropped in the road, he shines your shoes (you think for free as a way of thanking you), he then demands a super-inflatable price.
Wrong Change
Cabbie slips lower denomination notes under the bigger ones at the top of the hand and drives away swiftly, by the time the tourist has realised he is too late.
Charged for Seemingly Free Bits of Food
You get an extra bread roll or two, peraps a salad bowl, which you never asked for, you are charged astronomically for these extras.
