How it works:
- Opening: a respectable looking local approaches and claims that he is just looking for a chance to practice his English and is not after money.
- Version 1: he claims that the school/temple he works for is poor and in need of funds for books/equipment. He then asks if you would be so kind to donate a small amount.
- Version 2: he asks if you can buy some milk powder for hungry kids. You will be led to a shop to buy expensive milk powder which will be returned back to the shop for money.
Places to beware:
- Galle: Galle Fort, Old Town of Galle and its Fortifications
