How it works:
- Version 1: a local holding a bike helmet looking very upset approaches you and claims that his bike has ran out of gas and he does not have money to refill it. If you ask to see the bike, he claims to have left it far away. In reality, there is no bike.
- Version 2: fake injured beggars who are actually drug addicts or criminals.
Places to beware:
- Cape Town: Long Street Baths
- Durban: Blue Lagoon
What to do:
- Decline. If you want to help, donate to established charities instead.
