‘Chachaji cheater’ tries to scam Indian tourist at the Louvre in Paris

The Indian Chachji tries to scam a man outside the Louvre in Parisunpack

An Indian man, who recently traveled to the city and enjoyed an elaborate tour of the museum, came across a desi scam and warned others not to get involved in such scams.

In a Reddit post, he explained that after a long tour of the Louvre, he and his family were sitting near the exit area, catching their breath and giving their feet a much-needed rest. It was then that an Indian uncle, ji, approached the man and asked him to pass him the used museum tickets.

The scammer said, “Bete, if you finished the tour, could you give me the tickets? “Anyway, it’s a waste for you since you’re dating.”

Upon encountering said chachají, the man immediately had the idea that he was about to be involved in a scam. So, he refused to give away his ticket and replied, “Sorry man, I don’t want to get into any trouble. Also, there are closed circuit cameras everywhere, so be warned.”

Redditors validated the man’s suspicion

While the man was sure he was approached by a scammer and would likely resell the tickets at high prices to someone else, he still had doubts about his actions. He asked people on the Internet to validate his answer.

People came forward and patted him on the back for refusing to share his ticket with the random guy. It is estimated that these people who seem quite regular and normal often end up being scammers who resell the tickets to unsuspecting tourists and when the tickets are refused at the gate, they make a fuss and refuse to pay the tourists.
