My favorites in India are:
The pregnant woman scam need money for taxi, doctor, etc.
Stranded need money. One fine individual spoke such fine English and wove such a great story for an hour I gave him money for the romance and effort.
No need for a receipt...but there is.
The phony scale still at entrance of even the new airport in Delhi.
But, mostly there is no major impact in India unless...
someone's personal vice (criminality) enters into the equation..

Heard of this scam coming out of Philippines. This is not new. It must have hit India by now.
