The Bahamian Art of Scamming
Summertime not only brings with it heat and the fear among Grand Bahamians about the possibility of hurricane strikes, but it also bring with it, something that is becoming prevalent in this country, especially during the summer months.
Summer now brings with it the con artists and schemers.
Yes, those who use the lazy days of summer to concoct the most fascinating stories (of course with unbelievable problems) they can think of in an effort to get members of the public to contribute financially to their cause or to what is dubbed the solution to their problems.
Like the heat and the mosquitoes that are synonymous with summer, these con artists seem to be everywhere – In front of food stores, hardware stores, banks, ATMs and even on street corners.
