Avoid the "Newpaper Attack" scam

Where: Rome


The Scam: A group of gypsy children surrounds you, waving newspapers in your
face. The papers are merely to confuse you and block your view as the youths reach into your pocket
and grab your bag—or anything else they can get their hands on.


Advice: Firmly brush past them and move away quickly—and shout for help
if you need it.
