Something not right?

Description

Coming from RoC, I had to stop here. Overly zealous guy, he even checked the registration of the motorcycle and wrote it in his notebook. He demanded 20k CFA to pass, even though I had a visa. Did not pay, he did not want to raise the chain and sent me under it. A lot of time lost.

Latest Check-Ins

Passport and Carnet de Passage was stamped here. Fast and friendly. Did not ask for money.

The police officer tried  to make us a difficult time but in the end he let it be. After 10min we had the stamp in our passport. We are traveling by bicycle and heading to RoC.

After getting to the second border police checkpoint, I think I understood what their scheme is. The first guy fills a form and asks 20k and gives you the form as a receipt. Note that the sum is not written anywhere.

After that, you reach the second (and main, probably) checkpoint near Lekoni (on the map as well) and they ask you for the form. You remain with your pockets empty and with no proof of payment.

Please don't pay, as it will perpetuate the scheme. Ask for a receipt. If they don't give you one, just wait it out.
