"You have a lucky face" scam in Hong Kong Dec 18, 2011
Like my fake monk advice, this falls under the "beware of anyone who takes special interest in you as a traveler."
In Hong Kong, specially in the TST (Tsim Sha Tsui) area of Kowloon (especially along the harbourfront), there are Indian men who roam around looking for travelers. Usually they work in groups (break off individually), but I did see one alone once.
They will come up to you and say something like "You have a lucky face." I am unsure what their whole scam is - as I tell them to get lost so don't know what the subsequent steps are.
Needless to say (perhaps), don't talk to these guys - they are obvious scam artists. Walk away from them - if they persist, be more firm.
In this case, I have seen both White people and Chinese (namely from Mainland) approached....so every traveler needs to take some care.
