Just thought of sharing this information I came across

The biggest cheat happening in Delhi with most often tried on visitors arriving at railway station who attempt to take an auto or pre-paid taxi to their hotel. During the journey, the driver will say that the hotel area are blocked because of political Issue/festival or he doesn’t know where your hotel is, or that the hotel is full or doesn’t exist and will take you to a fake tourist office /offer to take you to another hotel/ a travel agent who can find you a hotel. The agent in the fake tourist office will try to convince you by dialing fake numbers to various hotels in Delhi to show that all hotels are booked .Then he will try to sell you a package with very unreasonable price (which they say very reasonable). Many people end up falling for this scam as they’re tired after their journey.

Stay Alert
