    Default New way to grab money or genuine needy people

    Today i was coming to islamabad from faisalabad. On bhera service area i stopped my car in front of mosque for prayer. When i came back there was one cultus standing along my car.The guy in cultus came out to me and told that he was coming from Gojra and going to abottabad, he has forgotten his vaulet home and has no money. There were also 3 ladies in the car, one in front and 2 in rear. They also told the same. I started to think what should i do, the guy who was in his 20's asked that we are in genuine need and will return me the money. I took out 500 and gave him, he started asking for more as he told that they have to get the CNG filled and also to pay the motorway toll. The women also pleaded for more so i gave them 1500.

    What you guys say, were they genuine people needing help or it is just another way to get money out of the pockets of people as we everyday listen about such incidents. Afterwards i has this feeling that they were not genuine, Any ways i helpled them thinking that they may really be in trouble. Share your thoughts and any such experirence.

    That's a very seasoned scam, you got conned!

    I was in a similar situation in Faisalabad next to my home about 5 years ago. The dude was in a white corolla, a lady was sitting beside him and a young child in the back seat. He told me a similar story - that they're from Lahore, came to Faisalabad on a wedding, forgot their purses in the wedding hall (surprisingly both of them) and needed to go back to Lahore, 1500 rupees would be enough for them to refill and reach Lahore. As soon as he reaches Lahore, he will just drop the family, grab his wallet and come all the way back to Faisalabad to return me my money.

    I was tempted after seeing him with family, but just when I was about to give him money, I asked him if I could keep his watch (a casio databank worth 2000 rupees) and I'll return it to him him when he comes back to return my money. I asked this really politely but his tone suddenly changed. He sat back in his car, hit the accelerator and was gone before I could see the look on his face.

    Nice idea with the watch, it's a good way to test if they're con artists or genuine! I've often heard of these scams as well, everyone's out to make an easy buck nowadays.

    yes it happened to me too. I was in line of Cng (10months before) A guy in bike came and said "i am in hurry and have to reach model town in 30mins could you please guide me the way to model town and give me the amount for petrol i've forgotten my wallet at home". I had 1000Rupee and 50rs so i gave him 50rs and he just vanished. This scam is effecting real needy people now . No matter what the situation is help everyone because he/she is forced to do that.

    Its good that people have "saaf" (good) niyat but GOD has blessed us with a brain too. Keep that in "saaf" (good) condition as well to use it when needed.

    I face a situation at LaryAdda Badami Bagh,

    A uncle & anty asking me that they want to go sialkot... & they need money,
    actually at that time I am also going for gujranwala when I said them he I am going gujranwala u go with me at gujranwala.... I pay your travel expense....
    then they says if u give us some rupees than thanks...
    we can't go with you...

    In my point of view this is new way of making fool the poeples.
