Fake Police Officer

The usual scenario of this con is that someone stops you and asks for directions. Then, in a little while, a couple of other guys show up claiming to be police officers, waving fake badges. They will ask if you were getting drugs from the other guy and demand to see your passport and wallet for verification. When you are busy trying to convince them that your passport is valid, and you didn’t do anything wrong, one of the police officers sneaks out the money from your wallet.

When you are approached by suspicious persons claiming to be police – tell ”the officers” you are happy to show all the necessary documents BUT at the police station. Swindlers will most probably tell you that you are free to go.
