I recently came across a show on the National Geographic Channel (UK) where a man named Connor Woodman goes undercover in a show called Scam City to expose scams across the world.
Conner provides viewers with helpful information tips and insight as to how not to get scammed when traveling. I feel that this issue is extremely important when traveling and the show is very beneficial.
Below are some highlights from some of the different areas that Connor has traveled to and shown to viewers.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
- Pick-pocketing Scam: Pick pockets are smart and resourceful in Argentina. (Watch the clip)
- Black Widow Scam: The black widow scam targets single male travelers with money. (Watch the clip)
- Counterfeit Money Scam: THIS IS A HUGE SCAM that affects many travelers visiting Buenos Aires. Fake tender exchange can happen in taxis, at banks, at money exchange houses, and even at shops. (Watch the clip).
