Good for you safety in numbers, I have never had this problem in hotels in Tunisia. I think it is unusual, or maybe I have been lucky. I think some of the hotels don't let staff in the rooms, the security are pretty strict.

Yeh, the hotel I normally stay in is the same - none of the staff are allowed near the rooms at all but it doesn't stop them!I'd never had a problem with any other hotel.... yes, always the same the staff are not allowed.... and i think the same rule applied in there, but i guess some staff just didnt care.. x
coz they bloody stupiedYeh, the hotel I normally stay in is the same - none of the staff are allowed near the rooms at all but it doesn't stop them!
I had a bit of a holiday romance with one of the bar staff at a hotel in Hammamet once (we will call him "N"). We only kept in contact for a few months afterwards and it fizzled out, there wasn't really anything in it other than a wee romance plus he was such a baby rat in the making anyways. We hadn't even spoke to each other on facebook etc in about 6 months let alone anything else but when I was staying at the same hotel in June there he became my stalker even though he knew nothing would happen between us.
He worked on the beach bar during the day and when I was on the beach sunbathing he would spend his time watching me, making sure I wasn't talking to anyone. I got friendly with the wee guy (A) who rents out the mattresses for the sunloungers on the beach and because it wasn't busy, he used to come and sit with me and my friends sometimes and have a chat. N wouldn't be happy about this and would find a reason to walk out on the beach, usually muttering something about the Germans bringing glasses onto the beach as his reason, but he would come up to us and say to A in arabic that he better not touch me! He knew I had a boyfriend anyways, bizarre!
He would constantly ask where I was if he saw any of my friends without me (there was 9 of us in our group) and also my friend caught him scouting the hallways to find my room one day because he knew we were staying in that block.
Luckly I think he's finally got the message since he's blocked me on facebook. What is it about them that they think that even though you ain't going to go with them and are very very clear about it, they still think they have some sort of hold on you?!!
i think they should be reported to the manager at hotels they work in.and tell the manager his hotel is getting bad press on here.then the rats would be more carfull about conning women.and it should be on the visa we have to fill in,but as we know that wont happen,I think that the bezness has a lot more exposure in the main stream press lately and this is positive. However the bezness will never stop, because emotions are involved. Women fall for the guys cos they are good at making you believe in them completely. It is so alien to our culture the depths these men can sink to if they need to. We have read the stories on here how a rat will tell his g/f that his mother/ father etc etc has died and play the story to the final conclusion and beyond........to us this has to be true, who would lie about something as serious as this???Well a rat would and does and this is just one example of how they will lie, there are plenty more stories they use to extort money.
It is organised and planned and it is crime, in the past a blind eye was turned to it but i think authorities are now realising the damaging effect it is has had on the country, and im sure more will be done to punish those participating in this type of activity, if/when they get caught
som true,the rats will tell them all they want to hear,and the women believe them.even when they read on here they still wont believe it will happen to them,but the min they are skint,and nothing left to give them,and they are dumped mostly in a text,they wish they had took the advice on here,and not let this happen,but.all i can say to women with these rats,and i know.i was bit to.but no way near some poor women on here sending large amounts of cash,and they do,the min they ask u to send money with western union.tell them to get lost.,and see if they will come running back,yeh the woman will know if its true love when shes skint.....
