Chinese Breast Flashers and Other Scams

I have read the site and think this is great info for visitors. I too visit Barcelona around 6 times a year and consider it my second home.

I have seen all these scams you mention (never been caught out as I litterally do not trust as single person who approaches me in the street) and I spent a few hours this week sitting back in the shadows of Barca and watching the buggers at work. Here is the latest Scams going on in mid Oct 2006

- Chinese Woman flashing breasts. A group of chinese girls who are either tranvestites or prostitues aggresively approach you with their breasts in full few and make an attempt to firmly grab your private parts (as a diversion) and then move into your pockets. This happens in the centre paved section of the Ramblas almost directly outside La Boqueria.

- Dancing drunk. I didnt even see this one coming but it actually happened just down the street from where I was standing about to go in the Casino. A very friendly looking drunk spanish guy is dancing around tourists in the Port Olypmic area and will put his arm round people and throw legs in the air whilst singing with you whoop whoop etc. Of course this is a distraction as the other arm is in your pockets behind you and when you realise the guy turns out to be putting on the drunkeness and is off.

Fake Bar Owner. As anyone will know wallking down the gaunlet of Port Olympic you have people standing outside trying to offer you free drinks etc to get you in. Quite often guys get quite agressive (on comission) and will put there hands up on your shoulders to stop you walking buy to try and get you in the bar. Several thiefs are finding bars where there is either no one outside or the crowd is too dense and will pretend to work at the venue and use the conversation as a distraction to rifle through your pockets.

Hope these help for the website and save some people a lot of problems. The simple answer is dont even carry your wallet - just take a 100/150 Euro's with you each day and keep all documents and cards in the safe

Thanks

Alex
