Jewelry Factory Scam

How the scam works:

Never buy jewelry when you are a tourist, especially from countries like Thailand or Mexico. The crooks are offering fake diamonds and sapphires that look real, making you pay $1,000 for a $3 piece of zirconium. The scammers will make you believe they know somebody at the “jewelry factory” and can get great deals. They will use words like “this is a blue-white diamond, so rare to find even here”.

How to avoid:

Especially for valuable jewelry like diamonds, you should never buy except from a registered dealer. Never trust people selling you things when you are obviously a tourist, especially on the streets.
