Designer (read: counterfeit) anything
Flashy designer bags, sunglasses, or jewelry sold at much lower prices than at home might be hard to turn down, right? What a steal. Well, there's a reason that bag is made by Cucci -- it's counterfeit!
How to avoid it: Another too-good-to-be-true moment, these goods are fake and poorly made, and thus sold at next-to-nothing prices. If you’re okay with that, go ahead and buy. But don’t think you’re walking away with a $10 pair of Ray-Bans.
Or in other words, an ATM card reader installed by a criminal who wants access to your PIN number. When you insert your card, the data on the magnetic strip is copied, and a camera focused on the keypad captures you typing in the PIN. Everything seems like business as usual so you don’t even know that your identity was just stolen.
How to avoid it: The easiest solution is to use only ATMs inside official banks, and be discreet when you type your PIN number by covering your hand.
