Con artists and tricksters are getting younger

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Con artists and tricksters are getting younger

Post by Duncan » Tue Aug 21, 2018 6:22 pm

Most embarrassing when you yet conned by kids. But this ones mother probably worked in Candy Bar so it's in her DNA.

I'm walking along riverside when a little girl , probably 3 + years old drops her mothers hand and holds on to mine as we are walking . Never seen either of them before. After about 10 or more paces she stops at a guy pushing a ice-cream cart . Still holding my hand she gets a ice-cream from him,,, and expects me to pay for it, which I did,,, 1,000 r. I dont think this was her first time cause she seemed so confident I would pay. Maybe had instructions from her mother.

She knew how to say Bye-Bye in English.

If this is your offspring , you owe me 1,000 r.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I've often walked around there with my son and his friends but I would never walk along the riverfront holding a stranger's child's hand.

I know your motives were pure as the driven snow but I would have worried about APLE lurking behind a tree somewhere.
