"Tourist in Distress" - We've heard it before

Contributed by Steve Glennie-Smith on 16 June 2006:

In May 2006 we were approached by a man (about 40) who claimed that his Easyjet flight home that evening had been changed to depart from Gerona (about 80km north of Barcelona). He also claimed that his wallet had been stolen and asked to 'borrow' 10 Euros for the bus fare.

We saw him again two days later, and so knew it was a scam.

He hangs around Placa Catalunya metro station. He has a Cheshire accent and claims to come from Chester (this may be genuine). He was wearing grey jog-pants and flannel jacket, and had a purple and grey rucksack. He had a pony-tail haircut. He also claims to work for Renault and would reimburse you with Renault car parts if you fall for his scam.
