How it works:
- Opening: a scammer pretending to be deaf and mute asks you to sign a petition, filling in your name, email and a donation amount.
- Set-up: the form will already be pre-filled with names and high donation amounts. If you do not donate, you will either be harassed or while distracted, an accomplice will steal from you.
Places to beware:
- Porto (e.g. Ponte de Dom Luis I)
What to do:
- Decline. If you want to help, donate to established charities instead.
