A netizen aired his complaint on social media after he claimed that he was outsmarted by a street dweller that he met.
In his post, Yopop LD Jhenny Dampil shared his story on social media about the homeless man who asked him for some money.
According to Dampil, he thought that the street dweller was a vlogger pretending to be poor so he gave all his money and expected to receive a reward for his good deeds.
However, after waiting for hours, Dampil realized that he was just outsmarted.
“Kung sino po nakakakilala oh pamilyar kay kuya paki pm naman po ako. Lumapit po kanina saken si kuya at tinatanong kung magkano ang laman ng wallet ko . Sabi ko meron naman kasi kakawithdraw ko lang ng sahod ko. Sabi nya maari ko daw ba syang bigyan. Lumingon lingon muna ako at inabot ko sa kanya ang perang lahat ng nasa wallet ko. Sabi ko pa na mas kailngan mo yan ngaun kesa saken na ako ay may inaasahan naman sasahurin sa susunod.” he said.
“Sabay sabi nya mag antay lang ako at mayroong malaking bagay na magiging kapalit. Mahigit isang oras na ako nag aantay na may lalapit saken na may camera at sasabihing social experiment lang pero mukhang na isahan ako ng akala kong vlogger at ang akala kong magkakadoble pa ako ng sahod.” he added.
It can be recalled that content creators pretending to be poor on social media became a trend.
One of the vloggers who used this kind of content was Ivana Alawi who acted as a ‘taong grasa’ waiting for some good samaritans to help her.
The lucky people who helped her received a reward from Alawi.
Dampil called himself as a ‘comedian’ on social media so the story of the netizen might be fictional only.
