Travelers Review for Russia


Russia

Be careful in Russia!!!

Reviewed 28 February 2013
You may read so nice things about Russia all in internet... Of course its a very different country with wonderful things to see...

But you may not find the traps you may fall into around any town... Mainly in Moscow there are traps for foreigners especiaaly at main touristic areas like Red Square... Do not pick up any money dropped by someone walking in front of you (or whereever)... These gangs drop a bunch of dollars in a nylon pochette on purpose and when you pick up and try to give it back to the person who dropped you will be trapped by 2-3 persons which they will claim you took a part of it and grab all your money from you. You will say no i didnt touch the money, they will say there was 10.000 usd but now 500 usd missing bla bla then ask from you to show your money and you will get frightenned and show your money.. they will take it and even they will say lets go to police !!!

Do not change any foreign currency from anyone around the change kiosks... Only change money from the offical change kiosks.. When you approach to a kiosk to change money but if it is closed these these gangs will immediately appear and offer you to change your money... They are perfectly talented with hand tricks and they can give you half of real value while you think its correct amount!!! Perfect magicians...

You may search for other traps in internet but above 2 are real cases which i lived)))!!! 1st one i managed to save my ass.. 2nd one happened in airport when my hands were full with my bags etc and for 100 usd change instead of 3000 rubles he gave me 2000 rubles looking into my eyes!!! He was perfect)))
