OMG: Does anyone know what's going on with this blonde/silver-haired woman that walks in a crouching position near the school and always asking people for help

  1. She's a nutjob and has been here for years. If you're naive enough to listen to her sob story she'll tell you she needs money for food, but (surprise surprise) she doesn't accept any food offers - only money. I'll leave it up to your imagination where that cash flow is going.

    1. I bought her a sandwich and a large bottle of water one night, she took the food... then asked me for money immediately after the took the food. Never giving her shit again.

    3. Weird, I was approached by a similar sounding woman last September or October outside DC. I wonder how long she has been working this scam.

  3. She frequents the 12 bus towards Fairview. Try not to sit near her or she will ask to use phone multiple times and then process to tell you a sob story and ask for money.

  5. Hey.. she's a kind person and it takes a lot of courage for her to ask... Is a line she runs all of the time.

    She's nuts but she usually has nice enough clothing that I doubt she's homeless.

    There's also a guy who walks around with a very chipper attitude, apologizes asking if you've "got a second" and then goes on a spiel how he's recently lost his job and him and his girlfriend are living out of their car and they just need money for a place to stay.

    He's been saying the same bullshit for a few years, don't give him money.

    1. Yeah I've run into that guy all over Waterloo, and not just near the universities. I'm pretty sure he cases certain spots until people realize his bullshit, then bounces around for a few weeks before coming back.

  6. I offered her food last fall, she didn't want it. I saw her Uptown a few weeks ago as well.

  7. You guys are saying they are making up all this bullshit stories which could be true, but lets say they are not, what if they feel like no one would give them anything if they didnt have a sad story? Ever think about that?

    1. doesn't matter

      the fact of the matter is they're doing it to use the money for cigarettes and shit

      this thread has been posted here before and people have testified so

  8. Do you know where & when she usually hangs out? I'm in Math and I've been here over 4 years and I haven't seen her yet. I wanna see if I can buy some sex from her since she seems pretty desperate for $$

  9. There's an older guy too who does the same thing. I watched him walk up Uptown to the end of the strip and get on the bus at King/Elgin (after asking me and the other girl waiting for money) only to get off at king and uni and start asking people there. If you have enough money to pay for a bus that you're only going to take two stops then I'm sure you have enough money to feed yourself.

  11. I refused to give her money, but her milk once. Maybe, I got scammed, but she's probably mentally ill anyways and has low income.

  12. You may think she may be a scam but what if she wasn't. You can spare some change out of your good heart to help them. I'm not saying you should every time you see her but once is enough. It just takes one scammer to ruin the chances of other less fortunate people who sincerely asks you for change or a meal. I have seen her around as well. Maybe she is a scam or maybe she is not--WHO REALLY KNOWS. Just having done something --going out of your way once for someone like that, just out of good heart and not merely for self benefit, is not something I have seen us, students done in a long time. And it's kind of sad because we are just one step closer to making this world less sympathetic than it already is.

  13. If its the same lady that I know about, she walks with a hunch back that seems pretty obviously fake and keeps asking people for help, even downright running after ppl in the parking lot (she moves fast for a back that's supposedly that bad).. BE CAREFUL. shes been around my work parking lot often and sometimes she will claim she needs help getting into her car, she will lead you to a truck where three men are waiting to mug you. No idea if its the same women, but sounds about right. She goes all over the place from kitchener to waterloo. I see her a lot. Her name is Tina and police are aware of her and she has been arrested before for being aggressive. I got this information from a cop when my ex bf had to call them on her.
