"A note for coins? Never!" Istanbul Warnings Or Dangers Tip by deda88

Istanbul Warnings and Dangers: 283 reviews and 139 photos

Stopped by a youn man I was asked to change coins for Euro notes, 20 euro coins.
Once accepted, the man counted the 20 euro in his hand(the amount was made by 2,1 0,50, 0,20, 0,10 euro coins), took the note and gave me only the smaller coins, saving in his hand the rest!
Once I was aware I took his arm and he asked for sorrow.... he was not a dangerous looking man!!
