Aspiring musicians often look to distribute their music (or blank CDs that supposedly contains their music) on the Strip, hoping to get discovered.
They’ll hand you a CD, almost as if it’s a freebie. You grab it because you’re polite, next thing you know you’re being shaken down for cash in exchange for the trash CD you didn’t want in the first place.
Don’t be afraid to hand it back, it’s not worth your money. Better yet, blow them off in the first place.
This scam is not limited to CDs either – If anyone tries to hand you a polished stone, bracelet, or anything really – Just resist the reflex to grab it and walk on.
