Bit of back story; was walking back from Tesco, find a lady at a bus stop crying her eyes out in apparent distress, ask if she is ok, too upset to talk initially.
Then she tells me that she was trying to buy baby milk but got made redundant and is flat broke. Doesn't ask me for cash but just some powder milk and gives me this story about having twins, one dying and the other being ill. To prove it, out of nowhere she just whips a boob out, starts squeezing it and shitloads of milk oozes out.
I genuinely don't know what to do and have never seen a con artist do this before, and having worked in Camden for 2 years I know every con artist trick in the book. She was also so convincing, properly sobbing and with snot everywhere.
Eventually I felt so sorry for her I gave her some money, which I now realise was stupid as the local community forum says she's a recovering drug addict and well known to the police, though the stories she told me about her kids and job may well be true.
ANYHOW, I remembered all this because of today's Fiver, where it seems someone else has been confronted too:
Not sure what else to do with this thread. Erm... what's the best way someone has got money out of you? Has a stranger ever shown you their private parts on the street? How much of a dick was I?
