Sob Story


 Posted 8 months ago More by Randy I.

I remember once around 1980, when I was working for 7UP/RC Cola Bottling Company. I pulled up to a convenience store for a delivery and a man that looked to be homeless approached me wanting to sell me a shoe. 1 raggedy, dirty, worn-out shoe. When I told him that I really appreciated the offer, but really didn't need a shoe, came the request for $20 so he could get something to eat. I had $20 but I wasn't about to fork over cash. I offered to buy him lunch, and guess what? He wasn't really hungry right then. He would rather have cash so that he could get something "later". The smell of alcohol led me to believe he had something different in mind. ************************* Late 80's I was Pastoring a small country Church when a family came to the parsonage, needing food. This family didn't live in our town and a few calls revealed that this family was going from Church to Church raking in a LOT of food which they were trading for beer and cigarettes. ************************ [img]http://memecrunch.com/meme/6D03T/sob-story/image.jpg[/img] Beware the pull on your heartstrings — it’s often the pursestrings that are actually being reached for. When approached with tales of woe, keep in mind those making the request should have other avenues of relief available to them beyond that of asking random strangers for cash. Is it reasonable to assume they have no family or friends who could come to their assistance? (http://www.snopes.com/fraud/distress/stranded.asp) *************************** Yes, scamsters are alive and well, spinning their sob stories. Those that often don't realize that this sort of thing even happens, often champion their cause! There are people that are truly in need. If you don't know for a FACT that this is the case, I suggest being very careful as to what sort of "aid" you provide. If you have a downline member that wants financial help "so that they would be encouraged" (that is what they usually say) do you see how much effort they are putting forth? Often their All-Time VP streak is less than 10 days!

Excellent Compilation of stories. It happens and now a days an other trick being used is to send some cash for help. Scam Masters use mobile phone messaging and are able to get some cash. It is just like fake lottery stories we all get in inboxes more often in spam folder. The last line is much amusing once you tie up all strories with a down line memebr who seeks financial help with your quoted following words.

In the USA they are cutting the VA payments in June.The Meals on wheels will be gone by June. School lunches too. Homeless people get $29 a month in food stamps. They only help those that are paying rent and have a residence. Then they take their kids if they can. Jesus said "the poor will always be with you". Sometimes you are feeding Angels unaware. .......Mary does this I had a big house in town.3 baths,4 bedrooms.I took in 4 homeless people.Bought them all a computer. Set them up to receive $300 in food stamps.Provided a T.V. for them too. I moved and my grand-daughter still has all of them. I slept on the couch.We all ate like kings.I moved and my grand-daughter still has her tenets. God has richly blessed us all. In His Hands Mary

Thank William, for sharing your story, but This is a Real live. man to satisfy his urges, is ready for any liar only cause pity, and to convince us that he was helpless. But it is only those who themselves are not respected, or his own family, people who are not willing to rise up out of the mud and bear the brunt of their mistakes. It has been and will always have. Your goal (which I salute) with this post is to never be those people, but always to raise and continue on the path we've chosen. Thank you it reminded us that the man could be such a person does not value himself, only to realize a low passion
Thank William, for sharing your story, but This is a Real live.
man to satisfy his urges, is ready for any liar only cause pity, and to convince us that he was helpless.
But it is only those who themselves are not respected, or his own family, people who are not willing to rise up out of the mud and bear the brunt of their mistakes.
It has been and will always have.
Your goal (which I salute) with this post is to never be those people, but always to raise and continue on the path we've chosen.
Thank you it reminded us that the man could be such a person does not value himself, only to realize a low passion
