Fake monk fundraising scam targets foreign tourists in Tokyo
« on: November 11, 2012, 03:20:44 am »
I was just today approached by a fake nun today in Ueno Park as she tried to hand me one of these good luck charms, right at the main entrance to the Benten Hall Island. Luckily for me, I had read about this scam a couple of weeks ago on the net. But just in case you go to Tokyo, beware... Just say no and walk away. Link to news article below.

My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
My actions are the ground on which I stand.
