Fake sob stories

There have been quite a number of reported cases, whereby a fellow tourist comes up to you, claims he is American/German/Swiss/etc, has just been robbed, lost his passport and has no money and no idea where to go next. He then asks you for just $5 for a cab..
Interestingly, there has been this “American” pastor from Chicago who has been at it for the past 5 years, telling tourists that he has lost his luggage and his family is stranded.
