What is this gypsy gold ring scam in Paris?

Jump to last reply

Within 24 hours in Paris, we were approached 5 times by gypsies who covertly dropped a gold - probably brass - ring, picked it up and offered it to us, saying it didn't fit them and we should take it.

THey then walked away.

The first time we took the ring but put left it on a ledge when we saw the woman return.

The subsequent times, we ignored them.

This was performed separate times bydifferent women, children and a man.

My husband and I could not figure out how this scam worked though we were warned by our tour director to avoid it.

Any ideas?
