Phnom Penh: A social media account under the name of Vibol Chorm posted this message and some photos, which were then reposted on a local news site.
At 04:20 pm, March 8, 2020, an unidentified Polish woman stands under the Monivong bridge at Chbar ampov and says she has been robbed.

Jeez, do they pass these signs onto other begpackers at the airport when they have enough for a plane ticket? At least get it printed on some nice paper or something..

Only one pole, so she's probably both.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

That's a good question.

The old Khmer beggar ladies have this all figured out.

Just watch them bounce from western face to western face all along the riverside restaurants, completely ignoring the countless Khmer tuk-tuk drivers, sitting there, picking their ass-cracks whilst surfing Facebook on their phones.

khmers are quite generous and maybe more inclined to accept things at face value?

Yeah basically, I think this type of foreigner thinks locals in this region are easy targets because their Buddhists or something like that.

Also why does she look so miserable while getting free money?

Someone should make her a new sign that says "I'm an irresponsible dickhead that thinks they can mooch off the world, tell my government and force them to send me home at my own expense. P.s I stink"
