The scam focused on single males seems to be even more active than in previous years. On two different occasions in the past week, both my husband and son were approached, in front of the Blue Mosque, by handsome and charming young Turkish men who had good stories about wanting to host a US friend to a glass of tea, which quickly changed to a trip to an outstanding, but out of the way and local bar.
There were three of these men working in front of the Blue Mosque every night last week. We sat and watched one of them capture a young male tourist and disappear with him in a taxi to Heaven knows where. I am confident that for every report we receive of visitors who lose money in this scam there are hundreds who are too embarrassed to mention it to anyone.
