    So many foreign nationals in the recent past caught for fraud and robbery. We are attracting the wrong tourists.

    Sri Lankans should be aware of these Nigerian scam artists who have bilked millions from people in other nations, with these fraudulent emails saying they can get their hands on money by sending some themselves. Old trick.

    Maybe you're right Lobo. But then we've soured relations with the western tourists because they're all "conspirators". Seems like we're reaping the benefits of our choices.
