The man had tucked his legs into the back of his boxer shorts, to give the appearance that he had no legs.
He then put on a pair of trousers to cover his hidden limbs and spent the say sitting on a skateboard.
But he was caught on when another man, who had walked past the ‘ disabled beggar’, was unconvinced by his act.
In the video, the passer-by is seen pulling down the man’s trousers to reveal his hidden limbs to the waiting crowds.
The footage is believed to be recorded in a Chinese city.
As the fraudster realises his cover has been blown, he desperately tries to wheel himself away on his skateboard – but the damage has already been done.
