How it works:
- Not all of course, but there are fake beggars belonging to syndicates who move around Europe to beg depending on the peak travel season of each place they go.
- They may feign disability or other problems, but one useful indicator if one is genuine or not is if they carry all their belongings along with them.
Places to beware:
- Stockholm: Gamla Stan (Stockholm Old Town)
What to do:
- If you want to help, donate to established charities instead.
