Yes, it can absolutely happen. I went on a date to the boardwalk one day, and there was this woman out begging, totally beat up clothes, didn't look like she'd had a shower in weeks, I gave her $5 and kept walking. We were walking back to the car, and I watched that woman count her money, then walk over, get in a BMW and drive away. Seriously, no joke or exaggeration. Now this is an extreme example, but yes, it can absolutely happen.
