Bogus Begging – Big Business?

Here’s a story that’ll get your mind turning the next time you’re approached by someone on the street.

According to a report from WAVE 3 News in Louisville, KY, one man has been working the streets of Louisville as a bogus beggar. He pretends that he doesn’t have the ability to communicate well in order to trick people into trying to help him by giving him money. As you’ll see in the video, he claims that he can make up to $100,000 a year from bogus begging.

Well, I can guess that story didn’t leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy…

It’s an unfortunate situation when someone would rather cheat people out of their hard-earned money than go out and work to make an honest way through the world.

What’s even worse is that there really are some people out there who are legitimately struggling with something that he pretends to be afflicted with, so how do you distinguish whether you’re truly being called to help someone in need or you’re just another sucker being hustled?

It seems like it gets harder and harder to trust our instincts in wanting to help our fellow human being in need, but it looks like karma served this bogus beggar some justice.
