We were scammed by a kid asking for baby milk Powder in Pub Street, Siem Reap! Also scammed in Ho Chi Minh in the classic ‘this taxi will cost you around a hundred pounds’ once you’ve already arrived at your destination. Lesson learned always ask the price first!
The kid asked for baby milk originally and we said no. We then saw him asking someone else and refusing money when offered. When he came back Tim took him to the shop to buy the powder and vie later read that’s its a scam where they wait for you to leave and then sell it back to shop. Apparently, it’s common for the kids and the mothers that do it to be controlled by a larger gang who take the money.
