RGA reportage / Ripped off
I was approached by an italian asking for the direction nicely. I helped guiding him the way back to the highway from Frankfurt city centre. He mentioned that he was on the way back from the fashion exhibition here.
Then he started telling me that he has no money and had to get back to Rome whereas the car was running out of petrol. Then, he offered me one jacket and then 2. In exchange, he asked for some monetary help, then I gave him EUR 100. He offered me another for my brother but asked for more money. ... explaining this and that. I ended up giving him another 100 EUR. And again asking for more !! with some more jackets. I felt like it is too much now. I then said good bye to him to end the conversation. At that time, I felt sorry as I saw him very diappointed. But this is the best I can help.
On the way back to the office, I kept feeling guilty but once I come to google.com searching for REORTAGE RGA and found out this fact. I now feel bad about what happened to me and others. The worst thing is that he played with my feeling and my good generousity. I do not think I will wear it. Just throw it on the floor and look at it as my bad experience in life.
Hence, just to remind all of you about this. It can happen to everyone. I do hope that you will have a chance to read all these comments and be ready before meeting these horrible creatures.
