    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!
