Son Scammed in Paris Bar

Jump to last reply

For anyone with kids traveling in Paris (or anywhere else) be aware of a scam in some bars: My twentysomething son and a friend went for a drink in a bar in Paris and were hit with a really large bar bill. When they questioned it the bartender called over a few big guys and intimidated them into handing over 200 Euros and my son's credit card. It was really upsetting for them and us. We stopped the credit card and protested the bill with the company but it is something others should be aware of. Has anyone heard of this before?
