Fake Tourist in Distress in Palma de Mallorca

Found yr site entertaining but was astonished by yr first listed scam.... The German lady in Barcelona and Madrid.

Thought you'd like to know that she tried it on me last October in the narrow streets behind the Cathedral in Palma de Mallorca.

I was struck by how well she was dressed and the high quality leather shoulder bag much favoured by our continental cousins. In my basic German I told her to go to the Police and then get help from the German Consulate in Palma.

Business must be good if she can move around all of these locations. She certainly had a lovely tan!

I'm off to Barcelona for 5 days in October so I'll watch out for the scams highlighted. Standing sideways on the escalators seems a good idea.

I was saddened to read how most of your contributors can only manage to eat at Planet Hollywood or McDonalds in Barcelona. What a waste!

Hi - just back to the coast after a two week visit to Madrid. My fake tourist claimed to be Swiss but the routine was the same.
