I've been debating with myself about posting this here because I know that it's a sensitive topic on TA. Most of the regulars on this forum, who are savvy travellers, already know about the bracelet scam and other scams in Paris and are tired of hearing about them. But then I remembered that I didn't know about it until after moving here 3 1/2 months ago. At that time, I was grateful to read the information about this scam on TA because I would rather be well-informed than not. So, after observing the bracelet scam guys in action, I wrote a blog post about them that is intended to be of help to first time visitors.
