It was around 6:30 am in the el born section. Me and 3 of my children were waiting with bags for my wife and daughter to come meet us . A woman, in English , started screaming in an alley that her purse was just stolen and her passport was gone and “help me, help me”. She wasn’t in any physical harm, so I wasn’t going to go help her. Anyway, I thought it was legit . It may very well have been.
Later I was told by some folks that this is a common scam – meant to separate me from my bags. And I thought I read every scam out there. This one should be included. Helping someone that is a victim of a scam, may be a scam itself . Avoid them, they can go to the police, or, at least be vigilant if you do decide to help
