A Paris Scam

Jump to last reply

on my last trip to Pparis, I was approached by a wholesome looking young woman asking me to sign a petition for the blind (around here it's common for young people with petitions)
I was about to sign when a French man nearby shook his head at me to say,no,no..
She didn't look like a gypsy but she was. Today some one wrote that these girls are back in full force around the Pompidou.. while you sign, another girl tries to steal from you.
