3 Ways to Avoid Tourist Scams
Scams, thefts and rip-offs often take place in urban areas in less-developed countries. Most happen in the first day or so (you may think you blend in but you probably don’t).
1. Stay Alert
Be wary of anyone who approaches you, particularly around popular tourist sites.
3. Keep Your Belongings Close to You
Take care of your bags and money especially in crowded areas and when you are distracted, for example when trying to find your way around on a strange subway system. Take your time and zip up bags and pockets.
