How it works:
- Well-dressed, English speaking middle aged individuals/Filipinas will approach and show you documentation about a recent disaster.
- They’ll be very polite and well-educated on the impact of the disaster as they ask for donations. However, this is all a scam – there is no charity behind it.
Places to beware:
- Tokyo: Shinjuku, Shibuya
What to do:
- Decline. If you want to help, donate to established charities instead.
