Upon returning to South Africa after my trip to Italy, the porters at the airport offered to take my luggage and load it on for me. They did not mention any terms and conditions or fees. After doing me the favour they demanded 50 euro's. Feeling intimidated - I paid them. Then once I continued to the gate of the airport, another man approached us and told us we were at the wrong gate and that we should follow him - not understanding why, we followed. He took us to the wrong gate which was 10 meters from where we were initially standing (we were actually at the right gate initially) and then demanded 30 euro's. I wanted to say no, but his expression was intimidating, his accent was foreign and I didn't want to put my family at risk so I gave him the 30 euros. Then when we returned to our gate I looked back and he was completely gone - no where to be seen.
