The Mind My Bag Scam

Posted by Awareness

The Definition: The Mind My Bag Scam is merely another way scammers use misdirection to distract the mark and lift his valuables.

Sadly, that is the case once again with this scam. The mark is doing only what any responsible, well-intentioned citizen would do when asked – helping a fellow human being who seems to need a little bit of assistance.
