Fake Homeless Dude Makes $100,000 a Year Scamming People

Meet Gary Thompson, a wheelchair bound panhandler who’s really, really good at scamming people.

Over two decades ago, Thompson was involved in a car crash. His mother ended up suing Honda and won a $2.5 million settlement, money that this con artist claims has been gone for a long time.

Although he has difficulty walking, he is in otherwise good shape both physically and mentally.

What Thompson does have is a degree in speech pathology, a skill he employs to deceive.

“I appreciate you guys busting me,” he says in the video above with a big smile. “I’m really good at it, really good.”

According to Thompson, he pulls in about $100,000 annually just from panhandling throughout Lexington, Kentucky.

This video will definitely make you think twice about giving away your hard earned cash.
