So the holiday is booked, the flip flops are packed, your full of anticipation about your holiday in Tunisia. There are a few things (well a lot really) you should know before you go. Have a look at the definition for Bezness, because you and your pals may soon be targets. BEZNESS - it’s a kind of supplementary employment. Bezness is rife. It’s a way to part you from your hard earned money. In some cases it’s to find a victim to marry to provide a visa, or it maybe a holiday romance. In Bezness terms that’s just sex and money. You may be young and pretty, older and pretty, younger or older and not so pretty, you might be Male or female, married or single, with or without children. Pretty much anything goes. You will probably be friendly and polite, enjoy sunbathing and going out in the evenings. What you will find is someone who gives you attention, special TLR attention. Invited you for innocent coffee, a romantic walk on the beach, a trip to a nightclub. Wherever you go you can be sure you will pick up the bill. Maybe not on the first date but pretty much for ever after. You will become friends on one of his Facebook accounts ( but blocked from the others). There may be tears at the airport and loving messages on your arrival home. And so it begins... you more than likely just met a Tunisian Love Rat. So you need to protect yourself, not just from having a one night stand, but from the inevitable love bombing which will follow you home. Pleas to return, soon, you are the love of my life. The best woman for me. “I meet many tourists but I never meet one like you”. I love you, my family love you. Without you my life is empty. Then a problem occurs, no internet, phone is lost or stolen, lost job in hotel, didn’t get paid, family need to pay hospital bills, utility bills, buy a new phone so he can contact you, then so many tragic things have happened to him and ONLY YOU can help. You are his woman and his love by now of course. Forewarned is forearmed. Be ready, don’t fall for it. Be on your guard for the super friendly, animator / entertainer or waiter, taxi driver or shop keeper even the security guard. You are one of many. As one flight leaves another arrives. Think of it as a matinee in a theatre played every day for a new audience. It’s professional, slick, systematic and utterly believable. Marriage Visa’s and financial scams are the most common and no one stops it or warns you. (Unless you read your countries foreign travellers advice). You will see it there but when did you last check it out? Take a look at Tunisian Love Rats. Not the media portrayal of Shirley Valentines looking for love, but women (and some men too) trying to warn you, from their own ugly and damaging experiences. So if you want a good book to read on holiday, lots of romance, crime, suspense, with pretty pictures (and some not so pretty) then hop over to Tunisian Love Rats. It could save you from years of hell. Happy holidays.
