You Heard It Here First

Postby Mike Farley » Tue 13 Aug 2019, 09:14

What I reported in June, the proliferation of eastern European gangs operating the three shell scam on Westminster Bridge, BBC London has only just discovered. Where we both agree is that such illegal and dishonest activity does nothing to enhance London's reputation. Since it has been going on for so long, it is questionable whether any effective action will be taken. Maybe there is a difference in cultures, but the real surprise is that some tourists are apparently so gullible. It was readily apparent from casual observation what was occurring and the con is as old as the hills.
