In the Phuket Gazette recently there was an article regarding the fact that there have been a spate of fake monks who have been travelling in Phuket and collecting alms from people.
How do you know that they are fake?
1) The monk is collecting after 8am.
2) Generally the Thai people do not pay them any attention
3) They ask for money.
Obviously this is not always consistent...
