Scammers’ favorite targets are travelers because they know for a fact that they are unfamiliar with the area, the language, and the local costumes. Plus, they are totally aware that travelers hold a lot of cash and valuable items.
Even the savviest travelers may fall into their trap because they are ignorant of the different “creative” scams that exist all around the world. It is devastating but the truth is: scammers can be anyone you interact with during your trip!
While you pack your clothes and items, make sure to pack more knowledge about the different types of scams to avoid being a victim.
