A specific kind of fraud was common in Paris for several years. People were deceived due to their greed and unfairness. Imagine a little girl walking in a store and asking a seller: “Sir, could you be so kind to help me check my lottery tickets? I can’t read nor write”. The seller seeing one ticket is winning makes up an evil plan. He says the tickets are not winning and offers to buy one of them as the girl apparently comes from a poor family. Yet this quick seller won’t enrich himself at the little girl’s cost as he will soon discover he was deceived and the ticket is fake. Such fraudsters are also called “Robin Hoods” or “nearly noble” as they fatten not on innocent individuals but on other fraudsters’ greed, on the principle “wanted to cheat – pay for it”. Besides the whole fraud is committed masterly using acting skills and knowledge of human nature. So such fraudsters are real masters.

The story with illiterate little girl is quite rare. There is more sunken kind of “noble fraudsters” in our country. The following fraud is aimed solely at sellers with slight criminal twist or suffering from excessive greed. The point of the fraud is the following: a decent-looking middle-aged man comes to a stall with leathers and furs and asks to look at some jackets and furs. Then he asks to try one of them on, takes a thick roll out of his pocket and puts it into the pocket of his old poor raincoat, takes it off and hands to the seller while tries the new thing on. As a rule a seller tries to steal the roll (or at least a few notes) from the buyer’s pocket, yet the owner of the raincoat catches him. A few accidental witnesses appear out of nowhere. In such situation unlucky thief is ready to recoup the buyer for moral damages regardless of the sum if only he won’t call police.

What to do? We won’t give you any advices since you are surely not a fraudster.
