Oh, they'll be there all right.

I've been there too for a week and never seen them, then next time see them everywhere.

Probably right/wrong place, right/wrong time.

We saw them!!!

Saw some poor bloke get ripped off by 80 euro, as soon as he got his wallet out they were in it, pulling more notes out!!

His wife came running out of a shop shouting " Kevin what the hell you doing"

We were seconds too late to stop him

The wife was fuming shouting thst it was a scam, and its all over Facebook, and they are all " in it" together! And how could he throw away 80 euro.

Bet he got it in the neck for the rest of the day!! Poor guy!

They were in there usual positions every morning last week.

One lot across from the gallowgate bar just outside the bank and another lot outside the indoor market.

Also saw them on mediterraneo towards the old town.
