Dating scam egypt
If you think what happened to you was illegal and the police are trustworthy, report it, otherwise, just chalk it up to experience.
Before arriving in a new location have your accommodation pre booked, find out where it is on the map and see if there is alternative transport such as local buses to get to or near your accommodation.
While sometimes tourist attractions are in fact closed or under maintenance, scammers will state those are open, and demand a small fee in advance.
Taxi drivers will also sometimes take a long route to a place and "forget" to mention the place is closed, then suggest an alternative attraction far away from the original place.
You may arrive at a major tourist destination only to find a very helpful local near the entrance explaining that there's a riot/holiday/official visit at the place you want to go and it is closed.
(Sometimes, taxi drivers are in cahoots with these helpful locals and will purposely drop you off to be received by them.) The local will then offer to take you to a lesser known but infinitely more beautiful sight or to a nice shop.
