Would you be willing to help a stranger if they are in need? Why will you, or will not, help this person?

I think so. I always offer a helping hand to the people in need. Sometimes, I consider this a weakness because there are people who, despite your good heart, will still manage to deceive you. For example, the beggar I came across last time... I gave him some money and even bread because I pity him so much. But after some hours, I noticed that my wallet was gone from my bag. I just realized that it was that man because of the guard mentioning that the man is not really a beggar but a syndicate. He has an accomplice who stole the wallet from my bag as I was giving the beggar some alms. I learned my lesson from this but it's hard to say. I still tend to help the people I pity.

I know what you mean... I helped someone once on the internet, and it turned out it was a scam.. :( It made me really sad, but then again, they might have really needed some help if they were going to extreme measures to fool people out of their own finances.. (The scammers were from Africa.. not that I have anything against Africa in anyway.)

I generally would, but it would depend on what he or she wants from me, if it be directions or some details about a local restaurant or shop, there is no problem But I do have reservations about people asking about residents of the neighbourhood or details about a specific house as to its structure,location etc.I would also help people in an accident.In fact,I already have.Here you cannot really say you would not help somebody you do not know.

Hi light It depends on the situation whether to help the stranger or not.If the situation and circumstances will allow I will help him to the utmost.I will not back.But if helping me will or may create problems for me than I will surely give it a thought.You never know the intention of any stranger.
