I found this OP on a thread entitled "please help me"

Give me some feedback. I'm usually really good at
telling when someone is trying to con me.
This feels different.

Hi Artic.
This sounds almost true. But most boys at 15 in this condition and if he truly did grow up in the black neighborhood would not be in the library writing this.. Call it stereotyping or what not. I'm just not seeing it. Most boys get angry with both problems he stated not emotional and make a plea. It's just a bit out of phase for me. I don't know if that helps but I'd tell you not to get involved. That's just my gutt feeling.

Look at his IP addy.

I don't think this is a joke.
Unfortunately they jumped on
him and I doubt if he'll be back.

The department of social services has resources for clothing for impoverished kids. It sounds like a scam for money to me, sorry, maybe I'm just too jaded to see it as a real plea for help.

I've raised several boys who were
not my biological kids.
One whose mother and step father
were on crack. One whose mother had
such a low IQ she was severely
negligent.

Both boys are now in their 20s
and still call me mom.

I would have taken more but parents,
even bad ones, don't like you to take
their kids.

Like I said I can usually tell when
my chain is being yanked. Maybe I'm
wrong but I'd rather be out some money
than have this kid on my conscience.

Why would he make a call for help on Topix? I mean, who does that?

Let's be honest, how many scams have we seen on this site over the past 10 years?

Besides, if he's 15 and he attends Southeast Grade School, he's a little old. Southeast School is located in Leominster, MA and is one of 6 elementary schools in Leominster School District. It is a public school that serves 609 students in grades K-5.

I smell a scam.

Maybe.

Arctic, why don't you google the school and forward the text on to them. If there's something to it, they will certainly follow up.

I was looking up the schools in MA and
noticed the same. Unless he goes to the
high school in Leominster. However the pics
of the kids doing activities at this school
appear to me mainly white.
A bit different than he said in the OP.

I guess I'm being a bleeding heart...again. LOL

Over Christmas a woman in a nearby town
asked for help on Topix to buy her kids
gifts. Several ppl stepped forward and did
help her out.
Not giving money but buying gifts for the
kids.

He's 15.
Unless he's been held back for 4 yrs
he has to be in high school.

I'm on hold w/the high school in Leominster.
I'll give them the info and maybe they
can figure it out.

When I use to be a nanny, I had loads of time on topix and FB. I was facebooking one day and noticed my son online. I thought that little pirate had skipped school, so I called the school, he was in class .... computer class. My son had found a way to by pass their security and was surfing the Internet.
My point is, this kid probably has done the same thing and just playing around on the Internet.

As a jaded pessimist, I see

a - An adult pedo hoping kids will respond so he can update his contact/target list

or

b- A teenage boy hoping some foxes will "rescue" him.

Oh sure....that happens all of the time.
There was a 14 yr old girl who used to post
on a local topix board.
She was in pc class and "bored" she said
and got on every morning for awhile just
to chat.

Artie - read his post again. He said he goes to Southeast School - Southeast is a grade school, not a middle or high school - it only goes to 5th grade, 10 years old maximum.

It's a scam.
