This is why I have a very hard time trusting beggars in Kuwait, some apparently are far richer than I am. They pick places they know wealthy people pass by. The other day I was stopped next to an ATM machine in Salmiya and asked to extract 60 KD for a beggar’s father surgery.
It’s so hard to tell if it’s true or someone is faking it. A beggar was arrested begging all over Ahmedi claiming he has no home nor money and was reported to police. After being ambushed and interrogated he confessed to 500,000 KD in his bank account.[Source]
