Begging Monks Are Conmen

Beware of 'monks' who beg for money at any time of the day – they are conmen out to fleece the public. Penang Thai Buddhist Temple Chief Monk Reverend Phra Khru Panyasasananurak said local monks are not allowed to beg for money.

Monks are only allowed to beg for food and not cash. Genuine monks in Penang do not go out to beg for alms as the temples they are attached to see to all their needs. So, next time you see a monk begging for money, you don't need to give as the money given would be used for other purposes instead of what you were thinking about. (source: 13 Oct, Star)
