On the weekend my friend was approached by a man at the shopping centre in Weston. The man apparently needed cash to get to the hospital, as his wife had just been injured in a car accident. My friend didn’t give him the money – but the next person did: $15.
Now, I swear the same bloke approached me with an identical story in Civic, around 3 years ago. And – I’m sure I saw something on Facebook, maybe 6 months ago, about a guy using this story at McDonald’s Weston. The person on Facebook took his photo and included his name (I think?) – but I can no longer find the post.
Does this ring any bells for anyone? Same guy or just a common scam?
