I SAW A GROUP TODAY! They came up to me like I was made of solid gold. Jesus they were leechy. They kept talking about giving a donation to help the children (won't you think of the children?)

I got real quiet and looked at the ground. I bit my lip and pretended to hold back tears.

I said that my parents were on a Christian mission in the south Philippines and were killed by the Moro Resistance while I was back home in college. I said that I had no idea why they were killed by the very people they were trying to help.

I looked them dead in the eye, pointed at them and yelled "I DON'T GIVE MONEY TO TERRORISTS"

Then I strolled away a'la "Haters gonna hate"


I thought of you the whole time, Revscene

Anyone thought of just taking the fake infocards they try and give out and just walking away? Like a new version of the old telemarketer "omg that's so awesome, let me get my credit card!" And just putting down the phone and leaving it.

The longer they chase you, the less time they can harass the next RSer.

i saw them down at the buck, in steveston, on thursday night...they all jumped out of a brand new van.... before they could say anything as the mob approached the people outside.

" you guys should sell your new van" - the one lady said "why would we do that".... all i said was

"Come on, do it for the children"

i proceeded to point in the other direction and they took teh hint and got back into the van and left.

oh fuck i just got a great idea for a contest....

if you get approached, pull out your phone and film it. then we vote on who screws with them the most in the most creative way.

EG: wasting their time, make them follow you, pretending you don't understand english but try to keep em hooked, make them repeat themselves endlessly (act like you're deaf but trying to understand, pretend to be retarded, asking them for money for parking, beer, whores instead etc. nothing cruel or physical, just fuck with them.

probably best to get a friend to record and keep yourself off camera.

post a youtube link of your exploit.

was smoking with my friends outside the vancouver sample sales (on robson)
the two girls suddenly barged in.
i acted like a fob, dunno english, and they ignore me.
my friend ignore them, one of them keep shoving the 'donation postcard' to him.

it was pretty much blank-range distance that my friend would shove a cigarette at their eyes.

Next time they start swarming you tell them to follow you and lead them to the closest police station or an on duty officer... or immigration office

i've seen these pieces of shit around before but not sure when i will see them again to try this:

1. act concerned and pull out wallet to retrieve a $100 bill
2. offer to donate $75 if they would give you $25 change (so I can take my mother out for lunch)
3. take their $25 and either: a.) run like hell or b.) "what $25?"
4. ????
5. profitss

I'd love to scam the scammers.

I hope someone tries this and gets some $$$ from them.
