(Scroll down for video) Most people are compassionate and do not want to see others suffer especially those who are down on their luck, are homeless and hungry.
One man, who was panhandling, asked people for donations so he can buy food.
When he encountered a person that said he did not have cash, the panhandler offered to take credit cards. “I accept credit cards,” the panhandler said as he pulled out his expensive smartphone which had a credit card swiper on it.
At that point, many people criticized the panhandler, saying that if he can afford a smartphone then he should not be collecting money.
But many others did however hand over their credit card and donated money after the man explained that he needed the money to buy food.
Turns out that the panhandler was not a homeless man, he just wanted to see how many people would give donations to panhandlers via credit card.
At the end of the day, the man took all the money he received and bought meals for homeless people who appreciated the meal.
