Near Downtown Crossing and South Station

New sighting:

"I just saw this guy again. Told me he needed a can of fix-a-flat to fix his flat tire. That he worked for Verizon. Said he would call me as soon as he got back to the office. Realize now I got totally scammed.

"Black dude with khakis and a blazer and tied. Says he's 'never had to do something like this before.' I was super suspicious but gave him thirty bucks. Feel like an idiot.

"I feel sorry for the next 100 people that ask me for money. "

Near Mass General Hospital

"Ran into him on Beacon Street by BU campus. Was suspicious the entire time, but him offering me both his ID and cellphone as collateral is what got me. Asked for $13.95 and then changed it to $30.95. Gave him $40. Then I searched his phone number in google to find that he has been using the same story for almost 20 years. Unbelievable."

Near Mass General Hospital

New sighting:

"10/27/13: I ran into this jerk today on Cambridge street near Mass General Hospital....AGAIN. First time was 5 years ago in Cambridge. He tried the same story with me this time and I instantly remembered him. I took his picture and asked for my $30 back...He became enraged, threatened to hit me, then suddenly turned around and tried the same scam on another person."
