Looks like you and swoop were on the money.

A rort in which professional beggars from China fly in to prey on compassionate Melburnians has been exposed by Victoria Police.

Elderly fake beggars have each been earning hundreds of dollars a day and sending the cash back to China electronically in the scam.

The culprits use begging bowls and money pouches, with their normal clothes hidden under specially-made “street” garments. Key CBD intersections have been targeted, including the corners of Elizabeth, Swanston, Flinders and Bourke streets.

It is believed the fly-in vagrants are being put up in inner city hostels and pass the cash they collect on the streets to “handlers”.

This morning I noticed my regular crew so to speak have been moved on. Vic Pol at work doing real policing once again.


You may well be surprized:

Vic Pol do an enorrmous job with homeless people on a daily basis. They have dedicated staff with NGO's like the salvo's and a range of services including mental health to work direcly with homeless people in the CBD.

At the same time there is a fair bit of co-morbid issues such as drug & alcohol use and mental illness amongst the homeless people. Many police I work with do a lot of postive work. At the same time some people go and shop steal or assault others or passers-by try to assist & call 000 so the police at times act.

When I heard the news, the first thing I thought of was this thread.
