Police Scam Artists Mar 25, 2011
This is not neccessarily subject to just Germany, in fact it's an internationally known and exercised scam. However, I encountered it in Germany at the Berlin airport.

A police officer that asks to see your passport and check if there are any problems with your Visa. They will say there is something wrong and that they can make the problem go aay with a small fine to them right away in cash. If this occurs simply insist that, yes, you will go with them to the station to sort everything out.

Sometimes these can be real police, but be wary. If they are fakes, they will say it was some sort of mistake and then leave you alone.
