You might recall just before Christmas, we shared a video about a young man giving a homeless person $100 to see what he'd do with it.

It was quite popular and a lot of people responded positively to it. It's a lovely thought and, especially at this time of year, an important message.

Now however, it looks like it might not have been completely true.

$133,000 has already been raised for Thomas, the man in the video, but it appears that he's already sitting on a large amount of money already.

Not only that, it appears the entire video was staged with YouTuber Justin Paler Lin playing a more significant role than first thought.

Take a look at this.



While, yes, in this instance, it may have been false - there are plenty of other homeless people who desperately need help.
