See How A Fake Begging Syndicate Was Smashed By Police In China. Photos

Some fake beggars who disguised themselves in order to deceive their unsuspecting victims -were recently uncovered in China. The fraudsters who disguised themselves as handicapped citizens without legs -had no problems standing up once they were investigated by local police.

Locals first alerted police to the case after beginning to suspect that they were manipulated. The on-call police officer unwrapped the cloth around one beggar’s “missing” leg, only to find definitive proof that the man was faking a handicap. After investigation, police found three beggars using this ruse to beg for money. All showed remorse after the officer pointed out their wrongdoings, and they were eventually sent back to their hometown in Anhui province.
