VISITORS have reported that two people have been trying to make tourists pay to cross the frontier into Gibraltar.
A lack of surveillance at the approach to the frontier in La Linea allows sneaky people to try to trick those in the queue who know no better into handing over cash to cross the border.
Tourists had reported last summer that men with official looking cards hung from their necks charged them €20 before writing OK on their vehicle windscreens and telling them that would allow them to park anywhere in Gibraltar.
Signs in multiple languages warning visitors of the scam were removed from La Linea approaches to the frontier in 2001 as the problem, which may now be beginning again, was believed to have been solved.
