A female on a scooter pulls up to the male victim. She is going to ask him for some money because she is running low on gas and she has a long distance to travel.
This is the basic and more traditional scam that usually has some success, however, the more advanced method is for her accomplice to steal her bag (usually a backpack so the victim clearly sees it being stolen).
She chases the accomplice ("thief") on foot.. applies water drops to her eyes as she crouches down in "sadness," and then walks slowly back to her bike.
The unsuspecting victim opens his wallet and usually gives enough money for gas and food. She then drives off to meet up with her friends to con the next victim.
