How it works:
- Version 1: a young man offers to bring you to see his “uncle”, a 91 year old monk at a nearby temple. The “monk” will do some chanting, seemingly to bless you, then demand a donation.
- Version 2: offering to bring you to a nearby (sham) orphanage.
- Version 3: sharing fake sob stories like a hospitalized family member and asking for money.
Places to beware:
- Yangon: Nga Htat Gyi Pagoda
