How it works:
- Opening: a local asks where you are from and then claims to have a family member who is about to move there and is nervous. He invites you to his house for a meal hoping you can share some advice.
- Set-up: if you agree, instead of finding his family member at house, you will find a gambling game in progress instead. You will be forced to join and at the end, you will lose big as they are all in cahoots.
Places to beware:
- Phnom Penh: Royal Palace, Mekong River, Russian Market, Sisowath Quay; Aoen Mall
- Siem Reap
What to do:
- Decline such invitations.
