Fake Monks

Fake Monks

Who are they?

You see them out there in tourist spots, men and women dressed up in seeming Buddhist robes, handing out trinkets and asking for donations.

Hare Krishna?

Yes, they are often Hare Krishnas, giving out what is seemingly free trinkets (bead bracelet or Buddha picture) HOWEVER, they in turn WANT A DONATION. If you don’t give them a donation, they become VIOLENT, and will attack you or threaten to call the police. Many communities now have put up fliers warning the people about them. 

“Do not give money to the Fake Monk Mafia” the flyer says.
