good places to train Social Engineering?

Social engineering is the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery for information gathering or computer system access and in most cases the attacker never comes face-to-face with the victim.

actually i would prefer some face to face practice... mostly because i would prefer to "scam" (not actually scamming of course but i guess you know what i mean) someone in a shop or an employee of the public (like train/bus people, etc. not actual authorities)

Like someone mentioned near the beginning, flattery is a great way to ease thing up. Just one thing, don't be too obvious... people will realize your comment ain't coming from your heart, which it shouldn't.
