Scam homeless person at post office

Original post made by Annalisa, Birdland, on Jun 23, 2011

Don't know how many of you have noticed a woman at the Pleasanton post office usually hanging on weekends with a kid she is of middle eastern decent claiming to be homeless. It's funny she is only there on weekends??? she is a scam-she lives in birdland down off of Black. I have watched her a couple of times. I have told her I was on to her and now when she sees me she tries to walk away not making eye contact.

Exactly around noon last Thursday my wife and I went to the P. O. to renew a passport. On arrival I noticed her walking slowly down Black toward the P. O (no child was present). She appeared well-dressed and seemed to walk with a strut as if she were regal. What struck me as unusual was the eye contact she was making with passing cars, including me pulling into the P. O. driveway. As we got out of the car to go in, some old guy (like me) who was dressed similar to a minister or priest arrived and went into the P. O. When my wife and I departed after doing our business, we saw the woman seated on the sidewalk outside the door holding her sign asking for money. The minister/priest was engaged in a conversation with her. As we got into our car someone from the P. O. came out and began talking with her. It appeared he was shutting down her begging operation because she put the sign away, got up, and lingered there talking with minister/priest while the P. O. person disappeared back inside. You figure......

A few years ago I was browsing around the downtown area of San Francisco near Union Square when I came across a young gentleman speaking with an English accent and wearing a scruffy suit. He told me that he was a British tourist and that he was robbed and needed a few dollars to get by until his embassy opened the next day. So I gave him a few dollars.

A few months after that I was again browsing around the same downtown area of San Francisco when I again came across the very same young man who told me the exact same story about getting robbed! Wow, what bad luck. The guy visits San Francisco twice within a few months and gets robbed both times! :-)

The same woman has begged at Safeway and Trader Joes, with the child.

I do that too. Whenever I see an entitlement person begging, I hang out until they're done, then I follow them to where they live. Some of them live in apartments in our community and have kids. I've peeked in their windows and they live in filth and squallour. They take the kids to Mickey Dee's and feed them french fries with our hard-earned money they pilfered from us by begging. A lot of them are fat because all they eat is potato chips. Haven't they ever heard of diet coke? Their fattening themselves up for the impending terrorist attacks. I've called the overpaid police and they just tell me to have a good day. Thanks Annalisa for posting this. It makes me proud to be in such a vigilante community. P.S. Never make eye-contact with them, it just impowers them.

We live in a day and age where every entitlement group member needs to be under our surveillance. The state won't do it because it's crammed with entitlement members itself, and then there's the union rules which forbid treating them like they deserve.

For all of our sakes, watch them, follow them, and find out the truth about them. The truth will set us free. No matter what the cost, we need to learn the truth about these people. Because truth is important.

I saw one standing at a bus stop the other day. I parked my Mercedes nearby and just went over and watched and listened until she got on the bus. Followed the bus for a little bit, but it lost me in traffic. Stay awake community! They're here and living in our midst.

Yesterday, at exactly 10:23 AM, I saw one standing at a bus stop. I called the police and they didn't do anything. I don't think we should pay our honestly earned tax dollars to the Transit System that carries these people from one location to the other. Along with my financial worries caused by the cash-out financing of the union teacher thugs, now I've got to put up with this? It's all very overwhelming.
