Avoid this tourist SCAM in Colombo, Sri Lanka. 🇱🇰

  • Published on:  Saturday, April 27, 2019
  • When travelling in Sri Lanka as a foreigner you'll no doubt be approached by men who try to appear as friendly citizens. They will attempt to coax you to somewhere, such as a "beautiful temple that you must go and see." Watch as this man follows me through the streets, desperately trying to convince me to go see the (fake) "Tsunami Temple", despite me showing zero interest in it.

    These scammers and their cheap tricks are not representative of the genuine good people of Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, as foreigner, they will be seeking you out so it would be easy to think that every local is bad when in fact it's a very small number of bad people.

    To be honest. I would treat this brown dudes actions toward me as a potential threat against my life and would tell him to fuck off or fight where he stands. Heโ€™s clearly trying to control your direction to get you in a position to be taken advantage of in some form or another.

    I've been there in 1980, hot as hell, and stayed in a guest house for 4 days.
    They brought all sorts of fruit into my room for free.
    Cost me $ 60 for 4 days. I gave the woman/cook $ 20 when I left, and the owner said that I should not have done it, bc it was 2 months wages. Are you kidding, she had 2 little kids. I told her to keep it, and also gave the guy $ 10 for the fruit. Talking about the poor "staying" poor, that is one example. [17.1.20]
