SAVED FROM A SCAMMER in India (Beggar Scam Exposed)

Mumbai is famous for the Gateway of India behind me but it’s also famous for a sympathy scam. People from the streets.. they come up to you and they ask you to buy them milk, rice and oil. So they can feed their family or feed their little kids they’re holding. But it’s all a sham because they just go and they resell that food straightaway. And it is quite expensive. It can cost you up to 1500 rupees to buy those three items for them. And basically it’s business for them. I’ve seen them operating. So let’s go and fish a few of them out so you can see how to avoid this when you’re in India. Scammer: Baby milk. Karl: What do you want? Baby milk? Scammer: Yeah. Karl: No no.

  1. Karl you are getting it wrong, you can call this a Scam when an IT engineer or any working-class tries to scam you. You buy rice and stalk her an hour later, then 2hrs later trying to find if she sold the rice,(Harassing). The family is the victims and you are the perpetrator, you show the whole world about them without their consent, how honest is that? Now as a vlogger you are being paid by ashaming people who do everything to survive. I am pretty much sure they sell that rice at a lower price than the price you paid, meaning the buyers take advantage of their vulnerability. Lastly, I cannot see the money they get is used for drugs, gambling, alcohol and such, instead, they buy other important stuff or maybe they wanna pay rent. Help them don't shame them.

  8. So sorry that u seen this all things but i appolize🙏🏻🙏🏻 behalf of them indian is still best and there are many good and honest people still here and many palces to explore. …

  9. Why don't you just not travel to India? You don't like India, India doesn't like you. Why not just fuck off before you have to pay for your beef video?

  10. Baby: i need a scam
    Tourist : do you have an idea ?
    Baby: buy me a milk
    Tourist: for what ?
    Baby: to feed me.
    Tourist : i am confused . Lets buy vodka 🙂

  11. You can call it scam, at the end of the day she is trying to feed her family. Its not like she's buying drugs. only 20% of what you pay to charity ends up being filtered to the poor. I'd rather give it directly and have some impact on a few people than give it to charity organizations. Your videos expose scammers which is good, but their is a thin line between scammers who just want to cheat you and scammers who are trying to make ends meet. There is a lot of poverty in India and Pakistan (I am a Pakistani), lets not brand everyone a crook.

  12. Incedible india is a joke…luks like they just wanna rip u off…money orientated…now go to pak and C the difference….gr8 video, tourists also work hard for their money

  13. If I had a superpower, I would wish to speak every language. The satisfaction of shocking someone who sees you as a foreigner, speak their language. So far in California I have not been able to shock anyone with my Hungarian haha
