OMG: WARNING: There's a lady in Waterloo with blonde hair who walks around like she has a bend in her back (sometimes with a cane or a wheel chair) asking people for money. DO NOT go near her. She is very aggressive, forceful, walks fine and drives a very expensive car. She's been seen at UpTown Waterloo frequently.

  1. Yeah the police know about her. I'd imagine a lot of people in KW know about her now haha. I'm surprised she hasn't been properly dealt with yet.

    I've saved one person from giving her money once - she seemed pissed. She's creepy as fuck.

    1. No, sadly, panhandling is not illegal. If you see her on-campus, feel free to call the police. But otherwise....

    2. at 2.b) It's not so much the panhandling but her agression. She's really threatening being 6 foot tall with the black eye makeup. Really scary

  3. I'm not sure why nobody has done anything yet. Especially since she approaches cars sometimes and it can be scary.. But I feel bad for her because she seems very mentally ill. The least KW can do is get her proper treatment she needs to overcome her issues.

    1. I had a friend who actually tried helping her. Got her case worker's phone number and called but couldn't do anything unless she would consent to it.

      She's a messed up person to say the least, and is possibly on some kind of social assistance or something but she doesn't want help beyond what she's got I would say. Let's her keep doing this panhandling.

  5. I hate how she lures people in by asking if they can help her... I automatically just say I don't have any money and she backs off

  6. Is this the woman that often panhandles in front of university plaza?

    1. Yes. She appears to have some mental illness. She is a con artist to the fullest extent. I knew she was when she approached me. She approached another girl after and got money from her. I don't know how people are stupid enough to be fooled by her yet go to a top 5 school and get a degree smgdh...

  7. Her name is Louisa apparently. I think she's probably mentally ill as she's been sighted everywhere around K-W and many people seem to have same/similar stories about her. Just say "no" and ignore her, that's the best way to make it stop.

  8. I've seen her outside of uptown LCBO. She comes up to you saying she is old and needs help. I told her no thanks and kept walking... if anyone else is approached by her they should do the same.

  11. I guess I am one of those people that "fell" for her scam, if that's what you want to call it. However, when I see someone for the first time who is particularly well dressed and asking for help to pick up her cane, my natural instinct is to go over and help her. It's called compassion. I don't think having a post-secondary education has anything to do with having that initial reaction - maybe I'm just not "street smart". Anyways, it's a "fool me once..." type of situation, because now I steer clear of her. A few weeks ago, around midnight I was heading home after a study session and she started coming after me as I went to my car. I jumped inside, and boy could she suddenly move! She scooted over to my car and started banging on the passenger window with her cane. Spooked the heck out of me.

  14. That old lady is frequent in Highland in Kitchener (Highland and Westmount). I find it creepy that she went to a gas station once at like 10PM and some 30 year old guy/idiot let her into his car and gave her a ride, after filling up his car with gas. There was another instance where she asked for a slice of Pizza at the plaza across.

    I work my ass off and there she is asking for money.

  16. I was in uptown and was about to get in my car when all I hear is "HELP!! HELP!!!". So i naturally run over to this lady that you're talking about, and i'm asking her what's wrong.. She was with someone she claimed was her daughter, and I'm asking her if she needs me to call an ambulance. She said no just money for surgery on her leg... I'm like uh... no.
