How it works:
- Opening: you may be approached by a bunch of people carrying a polaroid camera asking if they can take a photo with you.
- Set-up: after taking a few photos together, they will then ask you to pay for the polaroid photos! Although you did not ask for the photos, the scammers will gang up on you and pressure you claiming that this is an irreversible process and not let you off.
Places to beware:
- Siem Reap
What to do:
- If your gut does not feel right, it is probably right.
- To be safe, you can avoid taking photos with strangers who ask you to if you see them using a polaroid camera.
