I've encountered this asshole three times this year. He asks for money for transportation to meet his son/wife/close relative and he's usually about $40 short. He'll take whatever money that you have on you and even if you say you have no money he'll even suggest that you go to a bank machine to withdraw some for him. My previous encounter with him was documented in this blog entry. Looks like I did give him a bit of money. Thanks to Jonathan for pointing out the obvious to me. See his "anonymous" comment on the aforementioned entry.

The next time you try to scam me I'm posting your headshot that I shot from across the street with the D2X and 70-200/2.8 VR. No charge! Not that I expect you to see this entry.
All photos shot with the Fuji F10, ISO 1600, AWB, hand held, obviously.
