Friendship bracelet scam Paris

Jump to last reply

My husband and I ate lunch on the grounds of Sacre Coeur today and witnessed so many unsuspecting tourists get nailed by groups of grown men making bracelets on them.. The men were aggressive, often grabbing people's arms and physically blocking them from moving past them on the stairs. If there were two people and one was caught another partner would run over and start making a bracelet on them. When they were finished they would demand payment and the tourists would actually pay them. I even witnessed one of the men grab a little girls arm, to which thankfully the father said some choice words. I mean I know these guys need to make a living, but watching this made me angry. Thoughts?
