"Beware of those Roumanians who..." People to Avoid Tip by borcsi

People to Avoid, Barcelona: 45 reviews and 16 photos

Beware of those Roumanians who show you off their passport turned inside out, stating they are 'Tourist Police', and only want to check if you have enough money that satisfies the 'regulations'. They will rob you! They count your money and give it back, but ALWAYS give back less!
The same trick they use in Hungary/Budapest (and maybe all over Europe), so don't be fooled!! (No, I wasn't :)
