This is one of the oldest scams. I do twenty questions like I was a Dutch immigration customs officer (eventually if they are lying the lie becomes unravelled once you hit them constantly with questions -where you from what address when did you arrive in BkK take me to you friend what's his name etc). Many times after the first ten they get pissed and give up.
In the US its either a man or woman saying their car is broke down a couple blocks from here and the other parent is watching the kids and they need either food gas or both. Nowadays they will actually produce a family whereas before its just a lie. If their story checks out after 20 questions I give tbh. Mercy shown mercy given that kind of thing.
But i think for some people they have just gone to begging. Twice at the big gas station I fill up with I've seen the same lady ask for gas money. She drives and old big truck but she doesn't give a story I think she just thinks if she asks enough people that one will fill up her tank and she acts like she has other s*** to do. No shame, no story. Society devolving here anyway....
Sorry for the threadf**k. Ultimately if you want to give 100 baht to help them do it out of kindness or don't. Not up to you to confirm. Karma is a bitch is he's lying.
