Another Tire Pinch!

Found your site regarding scams in Barcelona and I'm sitting here thinking I must be one lucky soul! My husband and I were in Barcelona in March 1997. We arrived in the city around 7 at night exhausted from a long drive from France in our rental car. Of course we had no idea were our hotel was and kept driving in what seemed like circles when a young man knocked on the car window while we were stopped at a light. I became very worried thinking the worse, but he kept pointing to our rear tires. With my limited Spanish I realized he was telling us we had a flat tire. I didn't want to get out of the car and didn't want my husband to either. The young man insisted and finally my husband got out and yes we did have a flat tire. The young man offered to help change the tire and also told us how to get to our hotel. The good Samaritan refused to take any money for all his help only wished us a good time in his city. I just wanted to share a good story, however, I do realize it could have gone the other way. We are going to Barcelona in September for only 2 days before we take a cruise. I'm even more anxious now then I was years ago. My son told me of the gypsies with the baby scam in Rome and his friend's wallet was stolen. They actually chased the gypsies down and retrieved the wallet.
