Hi Cindy,
I also got approached by the ring July when we were there.
Definitely a scam.
I told them to give the ring to the local merchants in case someone came back but she insisted I take it..
They are after $$, Walk like a New Yawker!
I love seeing and reading your blogs.
Love from LA

Love the ring scam story and your bafflement of it. Keep the open curious attitude even if gathers the occasional loony. Enjoy it all!

Use your NYC skills, Cindy. It's actually good that this ring scam occurred in two settings, making the intent very clear. To those who plan to scam, you, being an American, seem loke easy prey. Take good care of you. Love, Mom

The same scam happened to Gail -- while we were hoofing to the Rodin museum. I was distracted taking a picture of two folks sitting on a window ledge--but a local businessman told Gail-- scam scam -- and chased the eastern European away. (chubby, greasy mousy brown hair)-- ring was a man's wedding band. They target foreigners that have 'open, curious faces'...walk like a New Yorker, Cindy.

Yes, it is a ring scam. Very common in Paris.



An Apple store in the Louvre? Mon Dieu!
