From the COLlive inbox:
There has been a lady in her 30’s that has been walking around on Kingston Ave. for the last few weeks, asking people for money.
She has been telling people that she came to Crown Heights “last night” to help her friend move, and her friend was supposed to drive her home but her friend abandoned her and she is asking for a few dollars just to get her back to her house in Long Island.
She is also offering to give out her phone number and she will wire them any money that she is given. She seems very innocent and polite, but she is not Jewish and her story is fake.
I met her 2 weeks ago, and she just came over to me again this afternoon with the exact same story.
I know it’s not exciting news but if you publish this info, it will save a lot of Yidishe money.
