"Beggars" Pickpockets, Beggars, Crime and Scams Tip by DUNK67

Look out for Beggars, they are all over the place. Some will come up to you and give you a hardluck story, others will demand money and others will just sit there and rattle a tin or jar at you.

If you want to give them them money do so but how many of them are genuine? Some are proffessional beggars and drive home in their luxury car whilst others will just spend the money on drugs or alcohol.
