How it works:
- Similar to the gladiator photo scam in Italy, this is not technically a scam but one that tries to take advantage of unknowing tourists.
- There have been some reports of “performers” who carry animals (e.g. peacocks, monkeys) who offer to take a photo with you. He takes several photos, make it seem like a lot of effort has been put in, and then demand an inflated fee from.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Avoid taking. If you wish to however, make sure to agree on a price first – there is no free lunch on earth.
