Tourist in Trouble - Think Again

Contributed by Andreas:

Me and my Girlfriend went to barcelona last week. We saw all those streetgames and quite soon we saw that they pick up the ball in the hand, so there's really no pea or ball underneath any of the cups. Then they slide it under the one that their friend picks. I guess it´s some variations to that, but it´s a loosing game.

We were approached in the metro station one stop from liceu by a proper english guy (excellent english speaking) with two large bags and with a anxious look on his face declaring that he´d been robbed on the metro and had to get to the airport. He asked us if we could help him out with some Euros for a ticket. As the nice guys we were we gave him 3 euros for the ticket. We did not realize it was a scam until we saw the same guy 2 days later. As we went after him he scurried away pretty fast. 3 Euros is not much, but i guess he makes a good living on it.

He has a grey bag in which he claims loosing his wallet, and he has a black case on his other shoulder. He´s dark haired and has everything combed back in a slick way.
