Beware of scam at O'neal Walmart parking lot


A lady will be sitting in her car and ask you for money because she ran out of gas. She also says she will mail it back to you at a later time. I had a friend get asked by this same lady on Friday and she asked me about 30 minutes ago. So beware of this scam. I hate it when people try to take advantage of others.

People actually gave her their address to "mail" the money back to them? They deserve what they get.

Not really sure if anyone would actually fall for that..... If that is considered a scam, its weak!

The same old cracked out dude with 4 teeth tried to get me with this in the French Quarter. Twice. 5 mins after the first time.

So you're going to label her a thief before she has a chance to mail the money back?

Siggy first.

When I was managing restaurants, I had a guy run in and claim that his pregnant wife was in the car and hadn't eaten in days! He begged me for a free meal for her and the poor unborn child. I said no.

A year later... same guy runs in, same story. "Your wife is STILL pregnant?!"

this is the key

since you're already at walmart, offer to buy her a gas can and a few dollars in gas

watch the response

just to see her reaction, you should have offered to go into the walmart, buy a gas can, and walk across the street to shell to fill it up.

it's the same when you see a 'homeless' guy asking for money to buy food. offer to go buy him something to eat. if he says no, then it's a scam. if he says yes, then it's probably not a scam and you've done the right thing.
