MOSCOW: Approaching the main entrance to Moscow’s VDNKh Park on weekends, you are greeted by young people selling balloons.
The sellers say the profit from the balloon sales goes to a fund that helps children, but some say it’s a scam as there are no documents indicating the fund actually exists.
According to some bloggers, a group of scam artists is hiring students like this girl to sell the balloons.
This teenage girl said she had been selling the balloons for a few weeks. She was dressed very colorfully, with striped socks pulled up to her knees and a bright yellow coat.
