The Map Vendor Scam

Contributed by C. Coucke:

I read your homepage because we are going to Barca soon. My twin-sister has already visited it and almost got robbed. Here's the story, see if you want to put it on your page.

She was drinking a drink on the Ramblas with her friend. She had put her little foto-camera-purse in front of her on the table so she would be able to keep it in sight. (As an Amsterdammer she knows something about tourist being robbed). A map-vendor approached her and her friend to sell them a map of Barcelona.He spread a fan of maps in front of them. She refused, he persisted but as she refused he went away. In the process he dropped one map and my sister naievely wondered why he didn't come back when they called out to him to give him his map...

UNTIL

she saw the shoulder-band of her little camera-purse dangling from underneath the maps... She went after him shouting and simply grabbed her purse back and said some nasty things in various languages. So: when approached on the Ramblas by a person selling maps, be careful and watch what he is doing underneath the fan of maps.
