"Gold rings on the floor" Eiffel Tower Tip by Karlithus

Eiffel Tower, Paris: 52 reviews and 49 photos

The most elaborated scam I've seen (on me!) in Paris, when someone passing through you simulates catching an gold ring and then try to give it yo you saying it was the destiny and you should keep it for health and fortune.

Once you accept it, he will follow you until you give him money and threats you if you don't.

I've seen many people fall on it, some I've advised on time, nut fortunately I was already advised before I go.

Seen it happening a lot near Eiffel Tower!
