How it works:
- Opening: a local approaches claiming that another tourist gave him a one Euro tip. However, as it is too small, he can’t change it with the money exchanges. So, he asks if you can change with him using Tunisian dinars.
- Set-up: as you count the coins in your possession, with him stating their different values as he explains their features to you, he suddenly decides you don’t have the right change and walks away. What happened is that while you were distracted, he has relieved you of some coins!
Places to beware:
What to do:
