On a trip to Berlin in August I was struck by this sign, in German and in English, warning of Trickbetrügern on public transport. I’m still not sure what the tricksters get up to but it maybe something to do with the shady characters who I thought were trying to buy my ticket when I got off the train at one station. I must have got that wrong, will have to brush up on my German language skills so I can understand when I am being duped. On our last day we tried to give away our week long travel pass that had half a day left, but people were too wary – they obviously had read the signs.
Sorry for the poor photos – I meant to go back the next day and take a photo without flash but there was too much other stuff to do.
