Five Ways to Say…
I totally fell for the scam. (I believed it, I was tricked)
I was taken in by the con man. (he convinced/tricked me)
This sandwich cost me €8! What a rip-off! (overpriced/too expensive)
I got ripped off by the mechanic when I took my car in for a service.
I felt like a right idiot/plonker/tit after they stole my bag. (feel stupid)
Have you ever been pickpocketed? Or even mugged?
What advice would you give someone to help them avoid something similar happening to them?
Can you think of any other types of scam? Email scams? Phone scams? etc.
What do you think the punishment for these crimes should be?
Have you ever been ripped off when you bought something?
Where were you?
What did you buy?
When was the last time you felt like a right idiot/plonker/tit?
