PLEASE BEWARE OF THIS SCAM.

Just purchased an Big Issue copy from the regular romanian woman seller and gave her a 2 coin which was the only one I had and handled over she put it in her pocket without looking at it and we contiuned to chat she begged for some more money to purchase baby milk (no baby present) I know it would be stupid to have a baby out in this weather and I declined don't they make a small profit amount from the sales?, then she pulled out a diffrent coin which was a 50 cents Euro coin from the same pocket and asked me what is this?, I informed her she then said that I gave her it instead of the correct change which I denied and will continued argue about this but I gave up and did not want to cause a scene and handed another 2 over. Please do not fall into this trap. if you want to make a comment about a vendor contact the Big Issue office at
