My friend came out of the fruit shop in El Valadero yesterday (Tuesday) and was approached by a smart looking gentleman claiming to be a dentist. He told her he was looking for the Bank of Lebanon, as he was looking for the new 100 euro note with a special picture on it. She, being helpful!! got out her purse and he asked to look at her bank notes. He got them out and checked through them and said it was not there!! but what he had done was "peel" two 50 euro notes from the back and put the money back into her purse. By the time she checked her purse he was gone with her 100 euros. She understandably now feels extremely foolish and embarrassed by this sad event - beware.
