If you saw a begger who begs on the street, would you give money?
There are many of them around Beijing subway lines.
They are often disabled, or accompanied by an elderly lady or young child, to gain sympathy from passers-by.
Sometimes I suspect many of the beggars are swindlers organized by a ringleader to earn money.
So it's really a dillema for me.
One day, a poorly-dressed man petted on my shoulder and said, '''Please help me, my wallet got stolen and I don't have bus fare to go home. Would you give me 5? ", I reached to my wallet and I happened to have 5 yuan so I handed it to him.
My friend said I was so stupid to give a man like that. She said , "Does he look like that he had a wallet of his own? "
Well, Can you really tell if they're real beggers ?
