Alec Baldwin Fell For A Classic NYC Tourist Scam All New Yorkers Know Not To Fall For
Not to be *that guy* — BUT he should have known.
Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria, got scammed.
They fell for a classic New York City scam everyone who lives in New York City knows not to fall for.
Never, and I mean NEVER, buy a ticket for a Statue of Liberty boat ride from someone on the street.
Alec Baldwin apparently didn't know this rule and posted on Instagram about being scammed.
Here's what he said:
So, we head to South Ferry.
Me and @hilariabaldwin
Two sharp, savvy NYers.
Kids in tow.
We buy the tickets for the “boat tour” of the Statue of Liberty.
We are escorted to a shuttle bus.
To New Jersey!
I kid you not.
We paid. Then we read the tickets.
NO ON EVER MENTIONED NEW F***ING JERSEY!!!
This is a scam.
Take the SI Ferry.
It’s the best ride in NY.
