“Dear PoPville,

Last weekend there was a man walking around Columbia Heights asking for money so he could get to the hospital. He first asked me while I was on a bike at 13th x Park, then he asked me a second time 20 minutes later or so while I was walking around Tivoli Square. He was actually stopping cars and asking as well. I am not positive, but I believe I have seen this guy before several months ago doing the same around the Columbia Heights metro. I figured it was a scam so I didn’t give him anything. Did anyone else encounter this?”
