Frances, Those strange people you mention in the Gare de Nord sound like the group we saw when we were there, also having arrived on the Thalys. Thankfully, an American couple told us about their experience and warned us to avoid them. They had been looking lost when trying to use the ATM, and a young man offered to help. His friend came along, and long story short, tried to snatch their credit card from them. She pointed them out to us, and we saw the same group when we returned to Brussels. The scam must be profitable for them, if they're still there.

Best regards, Sandy in Illinois
