Hopefully this is a useful place to put this.

This is a very nice booklet produced by the UK Metropolitan Police Force. It goes into a good amount of detail about common scams, how to avoid them and what to do if they come to you. It is well presented and very clear and I think it could be a good handout should anyone need it. Just thought I'd share Smile

Mods - please move if there's a better place for this. cheers.

"Seriously did not plan to stay overnight.. I left my car parked in a wrong place in Benin and hope it doesnt get stolen before I get back..."
