Travel Tip: Don't Take Candy From Strangers

Share Button

When you were a kid didn’t your mom always tell you never to take candy from strangers. Well, that advice applies to us as adults too.

When you are young and go on vacation, it is only natural to go out mingling, partying and meeting new people. However, you need to be careful of strangers and not completely trust anyone.

Be careful of what they’re offering you; there are a lot of scam artists out there.

For women, if a man buys you a drink you need to be aware of the fact that he may try to drug you or if he buys you an excessive amount of drinks that he may be trying to get you drunk and take advantage of you.

Not to sound like EVERYBODY is out to get you, but you need to be aware of the possibilities and be wary of trusting people you have just met. Most importantly though, never leave alone with someone you have just met and never give them the number to your hotel room.

It is better to be safe than sorry!
