I was in downtown Deira today, when this fella approached me and offered to sell me a "brand new" Samsung Galaxy S III
Then, without a moments hesitation, I asked him to stand still for a second, stepped back and took his photograph.
(Works every time!)
It took him a couple of seconds to realize what had happened... then he went ballistic!
He tried to take a jab at me -- with his smartphone, but stopped midway (he probably thought better of it; seeing my sloppy appearance), took an about turn and began running in the opposite direction.
Never seen anyone run away that fast before!
Just another day on the Streets of Dubai.
Dubai Police have yet to issue a public advisory about these scam artists.
