Just the heads up on a scam. In the last 2 days in paris i have seen 2 different couples trying the same scam. Usually in a male/female duo. One of them pretends they have just found a gold ring on the footpath near where you are and will approach you to see if you have lost it. Not sure what happens from there as both times i ignored the approach. But i saw them target others. The 2 i saw operating at pont Royal near Lourve where very shifty. The guy approached me i ignored him then saw him hook up with this woman then they seperated and she tried the same gold ring trick with a man sitting on a bench and was relentless until he got up and walked off. i saw the same thing today near the Musee de orsay. Different individuals but again a male/female operating together.
Just wanted to make everyone aware to ignore these duos as they are surely out to distract you and probably rob you and are just circulating at the major sites.
