I was scammed on the first day of my Italy trip. It happened at the Bologna centrale train station in the evening. I was nervous that day because i could not find a correct platform to change train to Modena. I am still confused after i asked the train conductors for directions, then i was approached by a young man.
He showed me all the directions to the platform and also advised me not to board the wrong train. Shortly after i thanked him, he asked me for tips. I refused to give him money but he kept on disturbing me. I had no choice so i gave him 2 euros to avoid any troubles. It was a horrible experience for me.
