I have seen this thread up for awhile but I have yet to have an encounter with these scammers.
Guess I'm pretty lucky.

Just saw this on one of my friends FB status and all I could just do was shake my head.

Just got serenaded by three Pilipino ladies who came in and sang a song and played the guitar for me so I gave them $10 towards a earthquake fund somewhere overseas. They had a business license to do it so karma is coming my way considering everyone else is to cheap in my office to give anything.

Forgot about this thread. I had a fun encounter with three of them on Saturday downtown on Granville. I was walking by with my headphones on when one of them tapped me on the arm and asked for a donation. I just say "No." and turn around but they get in front of me and ask again, saying how it's for kids and whatever. "C'mon, I know you have money."

They're about 15 seconds into spouting their bullshit when I slowly put my earbuds back in, looking them in the eye as I do so and walk between them to leave.

haha i had a funny encounter with these people. I was in waiting to get into caprice, I was a bit intoxicated when a one of these people came to me with their pamphlet thing. I simply said no thanks not interested before they could spill their beans. You figure theyd leave you alone once. But no they continued this time they opened with a "Nay ho ma?" in their flip accent, they continued to try to throw broken bullshit chinese at me. Then they tried mandarin. I said I had it yelled: "I dont want your shit butanganamo" haha good times.

I've had those serenader come into my store and ask for donation. For illiterate people, they sure are persistent since they can't read the "No Soliciting" sign. And anyone notice if this girl is one of them scammers? No job, no shame and Filipino, she fits the profile.



As of today Jan 10, 2012 VPD has officially charged Cacnio.

Had something more legit this time.. flip lady comes up to me with an unused bus ticket which is valued at $2.50 i think and i gave her $2 for it and she was fine. Probably a scam but whatever, at least i got something out of it.

lol...

I think the proper way to COLLECT donation is to setup a booth... not go around and bugging people to GIVE money...


This crap is still going on.. this thread was made long ago... I have never came across these idiots...

next time you run into the ladies, say:

"yeah, sure I'll donate"

reach into your pocket and and SLOWLY rummage around in an up and down motion, all the while not breaking eye contact with them. Start breathing heavily and say:

"yeah, oh yeah...thats it...Mmmmmm...yeah...almost...almost...."

meanwhile increase the speed of your rummaging gradually and say:

"oh shit.......UNCE! Whew! Thank you ladies."

And walk away.

has anyone actually reported this to the police at all? it's one thing to have fake pan handlers but it's an entirely different situation when you have an organized group handing out fake flyers to get donations for non-existent funds. despicable behaviour.
