Anyone who's been in Southeast Asia is usually scammed within the first few days lol.

The travel agents with the cheap as chips fees with massive commission on top is one that got me.

Those pull-up competitions in public places. The bar rotates to force you to lose your grip once you get a few in. Think I did one drunk. €5 I'll never see again.

Not just in Italian cities....

Any place in Europe along the coastline. Handbags, hats, all sorts of stupid fake stuff you don't really want until it's right in front of you

I've downloaded a game app once onto my PC which also changed my browser settings to open some dodgy sites by default and probably was doing other stuff like trying to get my passwords and was just impossible to clean out of the system. Since I consider myself to be a bit of a computer nerd, this annoyed me greatly that I fell for such a scam. Had to reformat all drives and to restore data from backups.

Is there anyone who doesn’t get scammed in the whole cryptocurrency scam - apart from the scammers at the top of the ponzi of course?

Friend's maid got enchanted by an online "American Serviceman", they chatted online and he convinced her to send him money, this went on a number of times, she was basically borrowing that money from my old drunken and horny friend, it all ended when the friend got called by the police to bring his maid to explain her money laundering. She had sent something like €80,000

And yes it was a friend.

Well if you use markets which trade uniquely with cryptocurrency then you are eventually definitely going to get scammed at some point. Nearly all markets Exit Scam eventually, quite a popular one pulled such a move a couple of weeks ago.

I was at Feile 90 and was caught by one of those knackers and the 3 cups and coin scam...handed over £20 in the safe knowledge I knew where the coin was and obviously lost my money in an instant. Felt sick to my stomach that I was so stupid so went and bought some beer to help me forget. In my defence I was only 19 at the time, stupid, na and slightly drunk.

I bought crystal MDMA from a couple of junkies once and it turned out to be crushed-up meanies.
