Be careful, spring breakers. The State Department has warned that if you don't keep your self-esteem in check when traveling overseas, you could get robbed.
A tweet posted Wednesday by the Bureau of Consular Affairs read, "Not a '10' in the US? Then not a 10 overseas. Beware of being lured into buying expensive drinks or worse — being robbed. #springbreakingbadly."
The agency's travel-focused Twitter account has been tweeting out advice for spring breakers that is probably intended to be somewhat humorous.
