Scammers and touts are a major issue for visitors to India, so I went around the streets of New Delhi and covertly filmed scammers in action so you can see exactly what to watch out for! Watch me scam the scammers!
This all comes back to one of the most important rules from my India Survival Guide (Quick-Start Safety Guide) – don’t go places with friendly strangers. 99% of the time they’re con-men who are, at the least, taking you to expensive tourist traps where you pay exuberant prices and they earn a commission.
When in New Delhi, visit the real Government run India Tourism Office for travel and shopping advice. They have branches all over India too.
