Beware of the gigolos in Egypt, ladies

Jump to last reply

This is to all of the women out there with a soft and lonely heart. Egypt, like every other third world country, is full of con-artists. There are dozens of angles the professional con men use, but a common one is a tale of how they got ripped off by their business partner and devestated their family. They are very convincing and their families are probably in on it, too. They are probably married and have the blessing of their wife/wives to use the dumb foreigners, as well. Sex and sympathy are these gigolo's greatest tools for extracting money from you, ladies. Don't get fooled like I did. Here are some things to look and listen for, and trust me when I say, they only want your money.
