Was it an older black male with a bald head! The same thing happened to me at the gas station and he offered me a "free car wash" in exchange for the money. It had scam written all over it!

Same guy hit up my boyfriend and me a few weeks ago for $30. He said he works at Heco and washes cars on the side. Told us his son stole the iPod from a co-worker of his at Heco and if he didn't give the money to his friend by midnight, the friend would press charges against the son. We called B.S. and walked away. Glad we didn't fall for this. Shame on some people.

That is crazy! Same thing happened to me and my girlfriend and he needed the money by midnight or his co worker was signing a warrant/ who is this scammer?? He needs to be stopped. He drove a goldish SUV but I don't know the make. He talked 90 to nothing and I felt bad for the guy but it seemed a little sketchy so we didn't give him any money either. I wonder how many people actually fell for it. This is awful! Get the word out! Who is this guy really?!!

We had a black dude, bald head, park in our DRIVEWAY, get out of his car, approach me and my husband while we were outside and ASK for money. Said he didn't have enough gas money for his wife to drive to work. We said "so you have enough money to drive all over town to people's houses asking for money?" He said sorry and left. I wonder if its the same man.

Same thing happened to me too and my co-worker, but in two different places! And he acted embarrassed and all humble. Then we started thinking he'd been casing our workplace bc of the kinds of cars we drive! Question: IS there even a Rob at Heckethorn? Has anyone called the authorities yet on this guy?

I don't know how to figure out who this guy is but this is BS. He gave us the same line about how he can only withdrawal so much money per day and has already met his limit. Does anyone remember what kind of car he drove? It was a smaller SUV but I don't know the make and it was gold looking I think but it was dark. He gave us a sob story about trying to help his son and keep him out of trouble and even lied and said he moved in next door!!! The nerve of some people. The dude is a scam artist big time! Of this many people on topix have already encountered him I wonder how many people he has approached that doesn't get on here. I'm afraid he is going to take adva tags of someone with a good heart.

Surely someone knows who he is? He is a black guy that was bald and be looked to be 40s or 50s in a good midsize SUV. He was in a tshirt and shorts. Someone please post his name. This scamming people for their hard earned money is ridiculous. He is a thief!

I cannot believe he approached us again tonight about 20 min ago. We busted him out and he said he was just trying to get the name of the pastor of the church we were next to. This time we got his license plate number B26 71N. He was driving a gold 4 Runner about a 2007 model. Please don't fall for his lies people!!

If this is the same guy I had a run in with, his name is Ernest Wood. His middle name is Robert and goes by Rob. He lives off of Hornbrooke. I know this because I tracked him down after I fell for one of his scams.
