How do you avoid the kyiv street money scam?(2 answers)
Today someone (ukranian) dropped some american bills in a plastic case. I was speaking with the person beside me and we both saw it drop. I quickly scooped it up and passed it over to him. He said he had more money and started walking in the other direction. Within a minute he approached myself and the other man from lviv and started talking about his money that he lost. Within 30 seconds a man who showed us his police badge and tried to help out. He asked to see all of our cash. The man from lviv opened his wallet and i showed my grivnas. If i had american dollars would i have gotten scammed? What could have happened? And how can other tourists avoid this?
