How it works:
- Opening: locals purporting to be “ear cleaners” will grab and put something resembling a rusty nail on your ear, claiming that it cleans your ear.
- Set-up: surprise! They find something in your ear (e.g. a small stone), and then charge you an extra fee.
Places to beware:
- Bardez: Anjuna Market
- Mumbai: Gateway of India, Colaba
- New Delhi: Connaught Place
