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."
