Anyone see them in the parking lot. Had a sign saying their stuff stolen and they live in Georgia. Wonder if they were really down in their luck of just scammers. Anyone talk to them? I saw a local Christian business man stop and talk to them. Really nice of him. I didn't have any money to give or I woulda gave them something.

I saw a guy holding up a gas can saying stranded. I almost gave him money but I saw others stop at the intersection and give him cash, he would cram it in his pocket and put the can up in the air again. This was at Cheers exit 3. He was at the intersection by the stoplight. He's getting rich I guess. From someone who has been scammed, never give cash to anyone except your church, a person that you know and is in need, etc. if they are hungry, but them food. If they need gas, buy it for them.

I saw them Friday, I had no money to give, however, I was skeptical as I was recently scammed by a stranded person on the south side, it was stated to me this person was from Clarksville in the military and lost their wallet, me, my daughter and her grandmother pooled our resourses. Gave them gas money, this person asked for mailing addy to send money back to us, that's been 2 months and needless to say no return money, it wasn't expected but they shouldnt have offered to return it.

The couple w the baby at Walmart Friday broke my heart, I went to work and cried over it as I have a grandbaby about the same age. Neway I could not get that situation off my mind and was still upset Saturday, but I'm struggling myself and had no money to give them. Still feel bad about it!

I saw them today and wondered if they were scammers. They had their baby out in the heat. Poor kid! The mother should have taken her inside walmart where it was cool.

If she took her inside of Walmart, then they wouldn't have as good of a chance of getting money... People are suckers when it comes to kids. It's sad people use children as part of their scheme.
seen it
