This news story is exactly why I never give any money to beggars on the street. I know some people just fall on hard times but you just never know if you are helping someone or just helping them get over on people.

In San Diego this woman was seen begging with her kid and then just drove off in a new car. Yes after a bunch of people gave her money she gets into her new Mercedes-Benz and drives away.

I know there are many people who do need help but there are also too many cheats like this witch. I never give money to any beggar, I always give to a charity or a organization that will spend the money to help these people.

As the holidays get into full swing just remember that you can help a lot more people by giving to a real charity and not just some beggars on the side of the road.
