    Default Need money, out of gas scam...

    Everyone watch your six, in the last 2 days I have been hit up 3 times by people who state the same problem, I live out of town/state, I am out of gas and need some gas money, no one will take my moms ATM card over the phone without the card being here. Yesterday at work was the first time, again that day and this morning while I was getting gas. Each time I say Sorry, cant help. Its a scam going around Ada.

    I always look at them with a blank stare, then start moving my hands as if I were deaf... Works every time.

    several years ago i watched my Aunt give a homeless guy money for gas. He proceeded to act like he was messing with the pump. She just stood there and stared at him for a long time till he got mad and just walked off. She justified giving him money because he was probably a veteran.

    I've had that happen to me a short time ago. I asked them if they wanted to work for me a couple of hours for the gas, and was told they didn't have time!

    I like the one that goes,
    Him, "Hey man help a Viet Nam vet"
    Me "How old are you?"
    He "38".
    Me, "You were pretty young when you were in Viet Nam huh?" or "Were you on our side?"

    Yes and old scam. Quite often they hang around a Car Wash? I have been approached numerous times. Usually something like me and the wife, just can't make it home to Timbuktu, for some unexplainable reason which is no fault of their own, they don't have the money for gas, repairs, etc. Some even carry a empty gas can. If you tell them you cant help and they have hit up everyone in the area , their "out of gas car" mysteriously runs on vapors as they continue in search of the next sucker. 2 days ago a fine Gentleman approached me at a car wash, as I was washing the Vehicle. "Hey Brother" he said as he approached me between my vehicle and the car wash wall. I really didn't want to give him a shower, even though he may have been in need. I pointed my free finger at him at told him to " Get Back" . He seemed somewhat saddened by my refusal to listen to his spiel, as he continued through the stalls in search of his next free lunch.
