How it works:
- Version 1: fake holy men who offer to perform puja for you or who simply apply a tika (red dot) on your forehead claiming to have blessed you and then asking for a 500 NPR tip.
- Version 2: posing for a photo with you and then asking for a fee.
- Version 3: offering palm reading services.
Places to beware:
- Kathmandu: Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath Stupa, The Crematoria, around temples, festivals such as dashain
