I Will be traveling to Morocco in May, and I have being reading a lot about being harassed, scamed by locals and maybe even police.
I know of a friend who runs a very successful business and when visiting morocco he got into trouble with the police and got out of it handing them his business cards and telling them he had connections that could get them in trouble.
My question is: How legit is this? I'm very tempted to do some business cards with a fake e-mail and phone number and telling them I work for an important company or maybe even pretend I'm a diplomat some made up international association from the EU(I'm a EU citizen), because I'm very frightened by this sort of encouters and scams.
Can I get in trouble for this? If I happen to come up with some international organization and claim I work for them to scare them?
