Hair Braids

How the scam works:

Your exotic vacation has been great. You have a few days left on the beach, and one day decide to do something different: get hair braids.

The lady offering the service is friendly, and the deal is on, as she might say “it will cost you around $50”. She gets to work, but when she is done asks for $100! She claims she did 50 braids and she charges $2 per braid. If you don’t want to pay, out of the blue two or three mean-looking “muchachos” will come to collect.

How to avoid:

Set up the price per braid beforehand. Negotiate all the details before she starts working. Don’t be afraid to ask her to repeat out loud the agreement.
