How it works:
- Version 1: a local asks where you are from, claims to have a relative heading there, then invites you for a meal at his house hoping you can give some advice to his relative.
- Version 2: others simply invite you to play a game at their place and claim that by working together, you will be able to win lots of money.
- You will be trapped in the house, forced to gamble and lose a big sum. If you can’t pay up, you will be accosted by burly men to the nearest ATM.
Places to beware:
- Vientiane: Vientiane Night Market
