How it works:
- Opening: a stranger asks where you are from and claims to have a relative going there (e.g. for work). He invites you to his house for a meal, hoping you can provide some advice for his relative who is nervous about the trip.
- Set-up: at the house however, there is no relative, only a bunch of men gambling. You will be forced to gamble with them and eventually, you will lose big. If you do not have cash to pay, you will be accosted to an ATM.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Decline and be wary of overly friendly strangers.
- Keep a separate bank account just for travelling with little cash inside. If threatened, you can give this up.
