Warning to single men traveling to Cartagena
Warning about street hustlers.
There are a lot of street hustlers hanging
around in the tourist areas of Cartagena. Especially in Bocagrande and
Laguito. These people are professional scam artists. They are very very
good about building your trust and friendship.
DO NOT BE A FOOL!, they are
We have seen it so many times now. The biggest scam going is that they
introduce you to a nice girl.
These are not nice girls, they are also scammers. Many have been barred
from the nightclubs for stealing from the men. These girls work with the
street hustlers, running scams together. The street hustler will offer to
translate for you, by doing this he gets paid to be wined and dined by you.
At first it seems OK because you met a nice girl, but then when you leave
he will introduce her to another guy a few days later.
Again, do not be tricked by their friendship, these individuals are out
only for themselves. This is why they are on the street, and not working at
a job. They have been conning people for many years and they see you as
just another sucker. When your back is turned, they will look at you as
just another stupid gringo, but to your face they will act like your very
best friend. I do not want to list all the scams these people pull, because
I do not want to give more ideas to new scammers. Just avoid the street
If you do meet a nice girl in Cartagena do not let your translator have her
personal contact information.
Many, many times these translators will then introduce her to other men as
soon as you leave.
Do not hire translators to teach English, you will not
save any money. If you pay a person
to teach English, at best you will be paying for a translator to socialize
with your lady a couple of times a week. Many times the lady never receives
English lessons at all. If you really want her to learn English, have her
attend a regular school. It is a lot cheaper and much better organized. A
classroom setting is a more efficient and effective learning experience.
