Bodies in the boot (Rousse)

It was a terrible end to our holiday. When we parked at the airport I noticed that the boot of the car was already open. Surely we’d shut it properly when we set off from the hotel?

Once we got out of the car we realised what had happened. Our vehicle was surrounded by beggar women. It was they who had opened the boot, into which they had placed what looked like the corpses of their malnourished children.

It was, in fact, a scam, and the “bodies” in the boot were all part of a sophisticated begging strategy. The supposed children were in fact rubber dummies dressed up to look like the dead. We were not fooled.
