Has anyone ever bought those dancing Mickey and Minnies in Venice?

Jump to last reply

Okay, the scene is this: Venice, Italy Paper Dancing Mickey and Minny Mouse beside (notice in a strait line too) a boom box radio. The cost only 10.000 lire.
What a scam! I luckily didn't go for it but friends did. I couldn't believe it.

That supposed magnet on the back of Mickey was just black paper and danced due to a very fine, invisible string they have attached to a radio that vibrated, moving them. Unfortunately my friend bought 5 of them for neices and nephews.
We went back to get her money back and of course they didn't even look at us or return anything at all. Too bad we were leaving so soon or we could have reported them. They are all from neighboring countries and couldn't speak Italian at all and little English.
We did get the chance to inform others and stop a few potential sales.

In the streets and on the bridges they set up this scam all over the city so be aware.

I went right up and grabbed the string a couple of times and you can bet they lost that sale! Thieves!
