“Dear PoP,

Just saw your scammer post and wanted to alert readers to another one. I’ve seen this guy several times near 9th and H St NW by the large Chinatown parking lot. Twice I’ve seen him on Sunday afternoon trying to catch the church crowd that parks there for an evening service. Similar to the military guy and the pregnant lady he has a costume and an elaborate story. He has a pencil thin mustache, wears coveralls, has an accompanying tool belt and a few sets of what look like electricians tools. His story is something to the effect of losing his wallet, need to get to work for a late shift, losing his wallet, and needing a specific amount of money for bus/metro fare but always promising to pay it forward three-fold.”

Anyone else encounter this guy?
