1. Fake Police Officers
Here in the states, not many people are crazy enough to fake playing a cop, but in other countries, scam artists do it all the time. The goal is to take your money. Often times police officers will approach you to inform you that there’s a large counterfeit bill problem in the area. They’ll offer to check your currency to make sure it’s okay. By the time you get your belongings back, the fake police will be long gone. Always ask for proper identification if approached by an officer.
