  • Con artists dressed as Buddhist monks dupe people out of cash in Sydney | Buddhist Connection
    given a few dollars A NSW Police spokeswoman said police had spoken to the people on a number of occasions However they had not technically committed an offence because they did not claim to be monks or say that they were collecting money for a charity The scammers have been seen around the city including at Circular Quay Darling Harbour Town Hall Martin Place Central railway station Hyde Park and Parramatta Kim Hollow the president of the Federation of Australian Buddhist Councils said Buddhist monks would not approach strangers on the street asking for cash In no way do we condone ordained people a monk or nun wandering the streets collecting money he said A business operator in Circular Quay said he first saw the monks about a month ago before he was told by police officers on New Year s Eve that they had no affiliation with Buddhism I first noticed that they were hanging around like the Greenpeace people I just thought there was something wrong about them the business owner who did not want to be named said On New Year s Eve about eight police turned up at my business and spoke to one of these monks They said they re frauds they re here on tourist visas and collecting money The police asked Have you ever seen a monk asking for a donation before I said No I guess not They asked if I d ever seen a monk in Nike shoes I haven t The business owner said the con artists approached people sitting in outdoor areas or those waiting for public transport He also had seen seen them soliciting for money at pubs in Darlinghurst If you make a donation you re allowed to write in their book Obviously it s a special holy book It s a beauty this scam the business owner said The people giving a donation probably think their money s going to build a bloody charity thing in Burma and it s going straight into their pockets It s wrong The police spokeswoman said police had not received any complaints about fraud offences being committed While begging is not an offence police would like to hear from anyone who believes they have handed over money to these people under false pretences the spokeswoman said Mr Hollow said he was made aware of a similar scam operating in Western Australia recently but had no information about the Sydney operation He said when a monk became ordained they agreed that their meals and accommodation would be supplied by members of the religion It s not a good look for our community we understand that We re certainly looking into it he said Anyone soliciting for funds at Circular Quay or Darling Harbour must have a permit from the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority The authority s rangers said they had encountered the monks at Darling Harbour as far back as September last year including six times in December They had also
