The infamous 81 year old Holland Village beggar granny has re-emerged in Orchard road.
Her latest tactic? To beg money from unsuspecting Filipino maids who despite their meagre salaries are sympathetic and helpful towards this old lady beggar. Little do the maids know, they are being scammed by this beggar who has been doing this professionally and was exposed by members of the public numerous times.
According to some members of the public, this granny beggar loves to play at the arcade and fuels her gaming habit by targeting high end condominiums or shopping malls for her begging scams. On a regular day, she would cry and tell a sob story to any person willing to listen and most of the time, they will fall into her trap.
On a good day, this scammer granny can earn more than $1,000 a day. Imagine her total earning in a month, it is no wonder she continues to do this and cannot seem to stop. Every time she is exposed online, she will change location and start begging again. After Orchard Road, which location will she strike next?
