Pickpockets, Beggars and and Street Scams, London: 14 reviews and 0 photos
These are not as common now as they once were but you still need to be aware that you could get involved. Mock auctions take place in empty shops and a gifted salesman whips the crowd into a buying frenzy by offering apparently amazing bargains. Again, accomplices in the crowd will start buying and then innocent people join in. You won't get a bargain, just like the street sellers, you will end up with rubbish worth a fraction of what you have paid for it.
