HAVANA TIMES – The post last week by Irina Pino writing about a friend’s sad experience of being deceived by her Cuban lover/husband as well as a religious scam has caused quite a stir.
Yes, as many commenters have stated such things happen in all countries and the deceit for monetary gain, sex, status, etc. can occur by the locals and the foreigners alike.
In this case, Irina was talking specifically about Cuba and the past experience of a friend, which can be a warning so that others do not fall into the trap.
We welcome readers to chime in with their experiences to continue the discussion. Some commenters criticize the topic as trivial, unimportant, but in my opinion it is quite real and deserves addressing, even more so as tourism to Cuba increases.
