How it works:
- Opening: scammers posing acting deaf and mute ask you to sign a petition.
- Set-up: the petition will contain pre-filled fake names and donation amounts. If you sign, they will hassle you aggressively to donate. While you are distracted, an accomplice may pick your pockets.
Places to beware:
- Brussels: Atomium, Mini Europe, Central Station
What to do:
- Stay away.
