"Happened to me today at the Prudential Mall. He told me his flat tire story and that he needed money for a plug kit. He made me put 857-258-0076 in my phone saying that he worked for Verizon and to contact him if I ever needed a favor. He said he only had $7 dollars and the kit was $13.99. When I gave him a $20 and he didn't offer to give me a any $ back I realized he was a con man. Anyway, it was a stupid mistake on my part, but his emotional con was pretty convincing."
