In Uzhhorod and Kharkiv volunteers held a social experiment, when a young man, pretending to be blind, asked passers to exchange him 20 UAH, giving 200 instead, according to rbc.ua.
The experiment was filmed. In Kharkiv a real blind asked passers to exchange him 20 UAH and gave 50 instead. None of the passers has cheated him. One girl even has run many places to fulfill his promise, in honest way, of course.
In Uzhhorod people, in general, replied that he has given more than 20 UAH and warned him to be cautious. Moreover, one young man just offered the “blind” 5 UAH as a charity.
Only two school guys have cheated the “blind”. The experimenters claimed that they tested 30 residents of Uzhhorod and the only children have stolen money.
A similar experiment was carried out in Israel, where none of the passers did not disappoint the imaginary blind, but in the US, some passers simply took the money and run away, or just cheated when exchanging money.
