Londoners turn down free money offered to them in the street by a stranger | London | News | London Evening Standard.

rather a strange reaction by those people, why dont they take the money? it’s £50. i would take it, as she said there is no catch to it. and there is no harm in taking it and seeing what she does next. if she start making demands etc you can always return the money. haha

are londoners so rich that they can sniff at £50? it kind of make me think there are some people whose souls just want them to be poor.those people who refuse the money and  that guy who ran away are souls who will never be rich. their  lives may be full of rich opportunities which they will run away from. and then they will be always lamenting why they are poor, and always saying why no one gives them a chance.

there are women who will offer to give u a sprig of heather, and when u take it , will hassle you to give them money, so maybe these people have had that experience and so learn not to take things from people. but money is different from a sprig of heather. i will take the money and then see what happens.

      i would take it even if they want my contact details. after all, you can always give a false name etc. haha. but londoners are a strange lot… in any other city, it will be a no brainer, everyone will take the money.
      it is really strange those people who are so suspicious when offerred the money. here in london we dont get any of that con men tricks that are so common on the streets of other cities. no one comes up to you on the streets and hassles u for money, no one tries to con you here, or try to get u to buy things, or try to entice u into a store; that is my experience here, and i have lived here a long time.the beggars just sit and wait for people to give them or not. the odd one might ask for loose change.
      yet those people who dont take the money act like they are constantly having to deal with people who would come up to them in the street and try to cheat them.
