"Scams and Burglary" Russia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by JohnniOmani

Russia Warnings and Dangers: 101 reviews and 74 photos

Be cautious of bogus police in Moscow and big cities as they might try to flash you a badge and demand your passport or cash. Corruption is huge in Russia due to poor wages. The only course of action is stay calm and find a local to translate. People use devices in ATMs to get your pin number so use machines in public places. Burglary is an absolute epidemic in Russia so dont leave anything valuable anywhere. Keep everything valuable near you including clothes on clotheslines or at campgrounds.
