A British beggar became known worldwide thanks to his ingenious begging technique. After realizing that people are done with carrying money in their wallets, the 37 year-old man bought himself a card reader. This proved to be really good for “business”.
Damien has raised so much money that he was able to buy a home in a suburb of London. Moreover, the beggar spends his holidays in exclusive places such as Ibiza or Paris. When out to beg, Damien targets residents and tourists in residential neighborhoods. His card reader is connected via Bluetooth to his smartphone and the donor receives a receipt via email.
