The Drowning Baby Scam

This bizarre scam is made even more hideous because it tugs on a Good Samaritan's sense of humanity. Behold, the drowning baby scam:

She pointed to the nearby lake where Mr White saw a baby, clothed and with shoes on, floating face down in the water.

Mr White, who suffers from angina, immediately sprang into action.

He took off his jacket and jumped into the filthy, waist-deep water while his wife and dog waited nearby just out of sight.

But when he grabbed the child's leg he realised it was actually a doll.

When Mr White turned around he saw the woman and her male accomplice stealing from his coat.

Would this make you less likely to save someone truly in need? Link - via TYWKIWDBI

No this does not make me less likely to help someone in need, because the likelihood of getting grifted is low (benefits outweigh risks).
