“Boys and Girls Club” Scammer

I think this is the same “Boys and Girls Club” scammer as previous entries. I waswalking to a doctor appointment when a 20-ish guy with dreads and a baseball cap came up to me and asked me something incomprehensible. I said, “Excuse me? No, I’m sorry, I–” and he cut me off with, “Is it because I’m black?” Needless to say I went off on him to the point where he took out his phone (a way to deflect people so I ignored it) and said he was calling the police. I gave him my doctor’s address and told him to send them there. He said he represented B&G Club but wouldn’t show me his binder. On my way back from the doctor, I told him I had all the time in the world now and lit into him again. He kept asking me to donate something to him or “the kids.”

    I hope the next story I hear about this fool involves him getting caught. What will it take to get him off the streets?!
