It's petty extortion season again.

Seems like around springtime every year the petty extortionists come out of the woodwork.

Every year I get about 2-3 extortion attempts, some serious, mostly just ridiculous.

Usually, it's someone I know who's decided that they can make a quick 20euros from me by either contriving some sort of nonsense reason why I owe them money or by stealing something of mine and asking for money, usually an amount ranging from 20-100 euros and, occasionally, in the 1000s

The annoying thing is, these little scumbag maneuvers always end up costing me more than the other person benefits.

What I mean is, if someone puts a gun to your head and robs you 20 euros, you lose 20 euros and they gain 20.

The Serbian variety of petty scumbaggery always results in me losing that the other person gains, especially if it involves stealing something and holding it hostage.  Ratio is from 1:100 to 1:5000 in terms of what the scumbag wants to how much I'm damaged.

It's always someone I know.  It's usually someone I considered a friend.

I literally can't know who I can trust here ever.


Call the police?  Oh ya... do that and the police will immediately open an investigation - on you!

  1. Doot, this is kind of staff I like reading (real life personal experience). Please, tell us specifics. As it is now, it is unclear what it is about. I do not have any similar experience as the one you described.

    1. To protect my personal privacy, I'm someone reluctant to give identifying details.

      As you can see there are a lot of weirdos here trying to find my real identity and who knows what their motivations are.

    2. Don't be scared. Write as much as possible. If you feel threatened at any point, you can go to Croatian Embassy. They will be able and (most importantly) willing to help. Keep it up and don't let anybody to stop you.

  7. Just to let you know Serbs in the US are scumbags also. Using and abusing everything and everyone they meet. They think their shit don't stink and bitch about everything from the schools to medical services, but are the first ones to accept a hand out while driving their posches and Mercedes that they pay for by running drugs. We refer to Serbs as the white trash of Europe.

    1. Completely agree dude..serbs are plainly and simply considered the junk of Europe all across the United States. Now ain't saying that all serbs in the US are trash, but there are so many rotten serbian scumbags out there so bad that the good behaving ones do feel ashamed of their accidental association with their country, and many of them opt to refer themselves as Slovenians or Hungarians or even Croatians..I've seen myself it twice!!! (two hard working serbian guys who are working in the air condition business who publicly state (with every single customer of theirs) that they're from Slovenia or Croatia) ...and I am sure they're serbs, and I also know there's a lot more like them around.

      Also agreed with the bitching..we have the best organized services in the continent and one of the best overall system of services in the world, certainly 1000 times better than any of their shit, and yet they're bold enough to bitch whereas they'll never have anything good going in their shithole, not even by selling their sorry worthless ass to the devil!!

  8. True..these people have something going seriously wrong within their brains. I'll tell you a couple of (witnessed) examples:

    - You enter a store and ask for a product (with a marked price already). The sales guy (yea, serbian men are much more frequently the petty scammers wannabe) ..the sales guy notices immediately that you're a foreigner because (naturally) you speak serbian with an accent, and then when you're ready to close the deal they come up with something like "that price is from one year ago, the new price is 70-100% more" ..I used to get upset at them but lately I'd rather laugh (hysterically) at their stupid face.

    - You and your girl get on a taxi at 11pm from Terazija to Zelenicka stanica and as soon as they notice that you're a civilized human being (AKA foreigner) they touch some buttons on their taximeters, five minutes later and after your arrival to the place they ask for 2000+ dinars .."it's almost midnight" they say..

    - You see some discount sign in some store and when you ask for the discount at the check out point they'll plainly tell you "popust je samo sa nas ljudi zao mi je" ...hahahaaaah!!

    I mean this is so bad that I have opted to ask my girl (American from Croatian descent) to close every single deal and make every single call (business related) on my behalf because of her language skills, I had no choice because when they realize that you're a foreigner, something flips within their brains and they suddenly become "brza zarada" hungry...WTF!!!

  9. John you are Croatian or Bosnian, Albanian so instead of writing bad things of Serbia and Serbians, why don't you start writing good things about your country, on that way you would actually present us that you are more different than we are. But no......yes sad...... I know you more hate us than you really love your owes and that is sad....... sad to the bone.....and again I can blame you for that, I know what happened and I know that was not right, and I truly feel sorry about it. But I suggest you to ignore us big time, since that will bring more positive thoughts in your life. You see by mentioning Serbia and Serbians only bad things come out from your head, it is like word you should ignore BIG TIME....you are human and every human need to love more and don't hate at all (or little)...you are full of that.....and I'm sorry!

    1. Luke! You've having a great day. You're providing many examples of strange Serbian behaviours and mentalities, in this case, presumptive racism/chauvinism.

      John has something negative to say therefore he must be Bosnian or Albanian or Croatian. Again... there must be some REASON that he made the bad comments. It couldn't possibly be that he has a legitimate complaint.

      Keep em coming Luke! It's really guys like you that write this blog, not me.

    2. LOL @ silly Luke Skywalker. Well I'm not Croatian nor Bosnian nor Albanian nor from anywhere nearby.. but now that you've mentioned it, it is quite obvious that you've got some bittered resentment against them neighbors of yours or you wouldn't jump on assuming I'm from there to begin with. Just like most grudged little serbians, you truly have delusions of grandeur and you believe that your country is right on its silly pretensions (the greater serbia dream/shitload) and the whole world is stupid for being against you about that. You (and most of your people) do need to get some serious therapy my boy because there's a name for such a state of recurrent hallucinations and it's called "DELUSIONAL DISORDER" and ain't kidding when I tell ya that what you've got is a serious psychiatric condition, you need to get that checked brate moj before you start hearing dead people or imaginary friends or the likes of it.

      On the other hand and now that you've mentioned it again, I have a huge load of great things to say about my country (unlike yours), but ain't gonna say it in here because it'll be an overstatement based of the true fact that the whole world would love to be a part of it. Besides that, when you talk against Croatia and Bosnia.. well the sad thing is that I could say quite a few very nice things about those countries and their people (the whole world can and does), but I can't say anything good at all about your little Serbia (the whole world CAN'T and DOESN'T), so go figure.. someone in this world is pretty delusional, do you happen to know who that might be LOL!?? You and your little serbia do really suck my little dragi moj.

      P.S. his shit started because we foreigners complained about their petty scams, and they really believe is good to behave and think like that, so we all came to agree with Doot again: if you have plains to travel across Serbia, scratch it, and if you have plans to invest in Serbia, (please!) FORGET ABOUT IT!, this people are way too fucked up to try to make an honest deal with'em!
