Travel Advisory: How to Avoid Thefts, Cons, and Street Scams
by Bambi Vincent and Bob Arno
“A gripping account of two thiefhunters, the criminals and their prey.
“Who would think that a how-to book could be a page turner? It was great to learn easy and practical ways to avoid becoming a victim of street crimes and scams. It was fascinating to read about all the tricks – elaborate or simple – that criminals use to pickpocket, to steal credit card numbers or ATM codes and more. I was glued to the book when it came to reading the criminals’ own words about how and why they do what they do. But it was equally fascinating to consider how the authors, a married couple, travel the world with a sharp eye for spotting criminals, the electronic know-how to set themselves up with hidden video cameras, and the wit and courage to engage thieves in conversation and walk away with their stories and techniques.”
“Travel Advisory is a well-written book of tips, tricks and gripping real-life stories from people like you and me…and not.”
