I read today about a scam going on with a gentleman going around asking for money for his baby and also this person has gotten invited into elders homes and takes advantage of them by stealing from their purse or wallet.
Anyway my concern with this is a personal concern …. as hard as it is to hear that someone needs something for their baby it’s even harder watching someone struggle afterwards and feeling scared and cautious all the time!
Anyway my experience with this is my sister and brother in law!
My sister has tried this many times and has succeeded with her family (still does) she no longer comes to me and asks for anything because I know her tricks I’m not stupid so I now ask her what do they need I’ll go get it … but she wants the money so I say no .. and tell my hubby to say no!
Its hard for him but I tell him what they’re doing and he finally seen it when they came over and were both out of it. We feel for the kids and always wish we could take them because I have soft spot for them also especially since my hubby and I been struggling with another child!….
Now my brother just started this trick recently and barely succeeded because we already knew this trick and also because we know the gf is the money care taker! … we asked her and she said NO WE DONT NEED ANYTHING FOR THE KIDS! she also eased us by saying if the kids need anything I WILL ASK YOU PERSONALLY!
SO THIS SCAM IS HARD TO BYPASS but if you want to save your money and also help others please dont give in to this man! … if hes not your family why is it such a concern to you????!!! Please be smart! ?
