This story doesn't strike me as true, but why would they publish such a thing?

So much of the news is fake. Who knows exactly what purpose each story serves, but I'm sure there are some psychological triggers in there somewhere.

I think readers will naturally put themselves in the protagonist's position.

Here's the narrative.

You lost all your money in the shifting winds of the economy, but don't worry, the next generation will bring it back to you.

interesting theory.

I was thinking more along the lines that the guy had all the money returned except one last twenty pound note, there will be people reading that who think it would be nice to send him twenty pounds to make up all the money.

say one hundred people do that, maybe more from a national news item , he has two thousand pounds! free!

Coincidentally there was a 'Good Samaritan' story in the Aus press today, but he got hit by a car, weekends there's not a lot of 'news' cos most of the presstitutes are rostered off.
