    The taxi scam is ridiculous, happened to me too many times before I found out I was being fooled! Thank you for all the other tips, very important for every traveler!

  3. Thankfully escaped all of these till now Only time I scammed myself was in UAE when I had to give the taxi driver dirhams but in a hurry ended up giving Dinars (Kuwaiti). I checked my wallet when the taxi zoomed off at double the normal speed. To my horror found the dirhams still dancing in my wallet and the dinars gone Have said that I lost my wallet 3 times in Vegas, South Africa and Mumbai but every time a stranger returned it.

    In Prague once a stranger approached me at 2:30 in the morning asking if he could use my phone to make a call. He even offered to put his own SIM card in so I won’t be charged. Drunken me on my first day in Prague, I agreed. He said he would go into a nearby restaurant to make the call. Like an idiot, I let him, only to wait and wait and wait. Upon questioning the restaurant staff 10 min later, no one had seen him. He ran away with my phone through the back entry of the restaurant.
