More tourist scams


There’s no shortage of scams for us to be aware of in this world — even in our home areas. Being robbed is never fun. Theft is only fun for the thieves. The more you know, the safer you and your belongings can stay and the better your travels will be. So when I find something about scams, I’ll add it here.


I found this great infographic at BoredPanda.com but its actual source is the JustTheFlight.co.uk blog. I love that it credits its sources.

40 Tourist Scams to Avoid This Summer

While it teaches us 40 tourist scams, it’s not actually limited to summer or tourists. Any traveler may fall for one of these and they’re not only summer scams. Please watch out for these at all times, all years, all countries. Every time. Everywhere. The BoredPanda.com site which reprinted the infographic, somewhat more accurately called it “40 Of The Most Used Tourist Scams That Still Work Because Not Enough People Are Aware Of Them.”

Same graphic — a great compilation of 40 major scams for you to be aware of as a traveler or tourist. It’s an easy read, divided by into sections. Remember though, the graphic says “most common in” but these things can be anywhere. For example, the cups scam was common in the streets of NYC and may still be and is also played on Hollywood Blvd. So know about ALL OF THESE SCAMS to keep your travels anywhere happy.

Anyway, here ya go:
