How it works:
- Opening: a scammer pretending to be deaf and mute, asks you to sign a petition which also asks for a donation.
- Set-up: a few things can happen: you “donate” an amount; the scammer snatches your money when you take your wallet out; or an accomplice can pick your pockets while you are distracted.
Places to beware:
- Ljubljana: Preseren Square
