Approximately, there are over 1.200 billion international tourists all over the globe, and comparing to 2015, it increased by 4%. Also, Spain, China, France, Italy, UK, and the United States have become the most popular countries.
With all of these numbers increasing, we may notice that scammers are also started to be found everywhere, trying to find any new way to deceive the tourists and scam them using new smart tricks, which is why we should not trust locals of foreign countries that much.
So if you are planning to travel anytime soon, pay attention to these 10 deceitful scamming tricks that all tourists need to know.
Imagine yourself in a foreign country walking quietly and discovering the streets. Suddenly, you see a ring or a bracelet on the sidewalk and it looks very expensive.
Once you pick it up, a stranger comes up to you and starts encouraging you strongly to not look for the owner because it is “impossible” to find him/her, but they will not let you go until you give them money for it. If you did, you will end up losing a big amount of money for a fake jewelry.
The local residents of so many countries are earning their living through telling fortune in exchange of money or valuable personal items.
So be smart and don’t be fooled with this trick, even if they try to convince you that they are capable to save you from a crisis or a financial collapse.
Basically, they are the ones who are going to get as much money as they can out of you and make you go through a financial crisis.
