Three years ago, I visited Casablanca, Morocco, with two of my best friends. Casablanca is a beautiful city with a rich cultural heritage. We arrived at the city late on a Sunday afternoon, and we headed for the hotel. After settling in at the hotel, we decide to do a short exploration of the city and to find some street food, which we could blog about on our YouTube channel.
After approximately half a mile from the restaurant, two well-dressed men (locals) approached us and in a friendly manner started a conversation with us. We told them we there visiting Casablanca for our food tour, and to our delight, they offered to show us the best places to find street food in the city. Delighted, we followed the young men, and to our surprise, we arrived at a street where there were numerous street food vendors.
After thanking the young men, we turned hurriedly turned towards the vendors but Alas! To our shock, the friendly young men turned towards us and started asking money for helping us find the street. Moreover, they demanded for payment of 100DH (approximately 10 Euros), and they became verbally violent when we offered them the 20DH we had on our possession. Luckily after a while, the indecent men left us, but at that moment we learned that we had been scammed.
