A hard lesson.

My name’s Jon and this happened to me when I was on holiday in Seville, in the south of Spain.

I was having a coffee in a bar when a man came up to me. He was quite smartly dressed, and he looked very respectable. “Do you speak English?” he asked. He definitely wasn’t Spanish, but I’m not sure where he was from. “I’m very sorry to bother* you, but I have a serious problem”, he continued. “I’m here on a business trip, and I’ve lost my briefcase* – it had my passport, my wallet*, my money, my credit cards, me mobile, my address book, everything. Could you help me? I need to borrow 60 euros to get the train to Madrid – my company has an office there. I’ll pay you back, of course. When I get home, I’ll send you the money. You can give me your address in England”. I wasn’t sure, but he didn’t seem suspicious*, so I agreed. I wrote down my home address on a business card he had, and I gave him 60 euros. I even bought him a coffee.

We chatted for a few minutes, and then he looked at his watch and said, “Well, I should get to the station. Thank you very much for your help. You’ll have your money back in a couple of weeks, I promise.” And he walked out of the bar.

So… do you think he paid me back? No, you’re right, he didn’t… and I won’t lend money to strangers again!
