I cannot believe how people can absolutely abuse the goodness of others and earn money from this.
The problem of homelessness and poverty exists even in rich countries. People for different reasons, are not able to earn their own living. To raise money for basic necessities, they often beg, asking strangers to give them a few pennies. Some people pull out a little bit of money from their small wallets, others buy them some sort of product. Some go by without a word. Unfortunately, some people who do not need help feed off of human goodness, and they consider begging as an easy way to get money.
Many people warn against giving money to beggars. Often we learn information that women and children are used for begging, while the money is raked in by criminals. More often and more importantly is evidence that so-called professional beggars prowl cities. They become a plague in larger cities. These are people who dress up as the homeless. They put on rags, tattered clothes and go into the city.
These are ordinary crooks preying on the good hearts of others. See what a man in Liverpool discovered and by accident!
