How it works:
- In return for blessings or supposedly free “lucky charms” (e.g. amulets), these fake monks will then ask you for a donation.
- They could also show you a picture of a temple and a notebook of donors names and amounts to influence you to donate.
Places to beware:
- Seoul: Jogyesa temple, Insa-dong
What to do:
- Decline, real monks do not do such things.
