How it works:
- Version 1: scammers who pose as students seeking donations for a sham charity on the streets and some go door to door.
- Version 2: giving you a flower in exchange for £10. If you buy, they will take another one out and ask you for another £10.
- Version 3: asking you to sign a petition for a deaf and mute organization and then asking for a donation. This is a set-up for an accomplice to pick your pockets.
Places to beware:
- London: Westminster Bridge, Liverpool Street Station
