How it works:
- Claims to be a fellow tourist who has been robbed and needs to go to the police/embassy for help but has no money for transport and for food.
- Another infamous version is at Lanzarote where a woman asks you for 1 Euro so that she can make a phone call.
Places to beware:
- Anywhere (e.g. Malaga: Castle of Sohail; Tenerife: Masca Valley)
