Thumbs down Beware of Harvey refugee posers

I was approached by a female in a white suv (not jeep) that said she was a refugee from Harvey and could I help. Anything would help.
There was something wrong here not sure what it was (maybe 30 years as a popo) I asked her to see her DL and she asked why.
So I can be sure she was from Houston.
Her reply was O we just moved there last week. THE sticker on the windshield will also tell you the county of registration
Just a heads up. Its a shame the low lifes that a situation can bring out.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE HEROS THAT RESPONDED

Folks will try anything. There used to be a 1 legged guy driving around Lindale in a van always wanting $$ to get to his doctors appointement in Terrell. Always the same story everytime. After the first couple years I would beat him to the punch and ask him for money so I could get to my doctors appointment in Terrell! Maybe he finally got there? I haven't seen him in a couple years.

I just get 15 or so gift cards that have no money on them, and I give them one. Would love to see the look on their face when they find out that they tried to scam me but I really scammed them LOL

I live just east of Baytown along the Trinity Bay and luckily I didn't get any water, but it did come up fast and people had to leave in a hurry. I'm not saying there are not scam artist out there just make sure that's what they are before turning them away. We got 61" of rain in my area in 4 days and I think 26 of it was Saturday night.

Happens a bunch. Had a lady approach me at a CVS.....this was months ago. She fed me her line of bull......wanting me to send money by moneygram or something. I politely told her I could not help out. A month later she approaches me at the Valero. I just looked at her and told her she had already tried that on me before. She walked away. By the way, she was standing next to her nice Tahoe at the gas pump. She has been reported to the local police. I have not seen her in two months. This one was running a scam.

We have been getting calls at the fire department saying they are the Cajun navy wanting to know where the worst flooding is. When we tell them to come to the station to be dispatched they hang up on us.

I had an older woman come up to me in a Walmart parking lot. She said she was flooded out and needed some money for gas to get to a shelter. I had several full 5 gal jugs of gas in the back of my truck. When I said I would just pour one of the cans of gas in her tank, she seemed a little dissapointed but led me to her car. I poured the gas in her tank and then went into Walmart. (I have a camper shell so the cans were locked up.)
I came back out and she was still there giving the same story to another woman there. I walked over and told the other woman that I just gave her 5 gallons and the shelter was just a few minutes away. The old woman scatted out of there quick.
