Avoid this SCAM in Sri Lanka

Every day in Sri Lanka I was approached by random strangers trying to convince me to go places. I happened to be recording a vlog when one of them approached me and the followed me through the streets in a desperate attempt to get me to go to some fake Tsunami Temple. Having watched the video back and doing a bit of research afterwards I can explain what the scam is. Watch the video to find out.

Unfortunately these scammers give the good citizens of Sri Lanka a bad name. Most people that you talk to in a genuine interaction are friendly and helpful. The presence of scammers targeting tourists shouldn't stop you from talking to the locals. Just have a lot of common sense and know that if something doesn't seem right then it isn't.

More vlogs are coming from me soon, so go to my YouTube Channel and subscribe if you want to see more.
