another reader sends from Connecticut Ave and Q St, NW

“Dear PoPville,

PSA: The person who presents as a trans woman and takes pride in (and makes social media fodder) scamming people out of money is back and currently up (as of last week) in Cleveland Park. She approached me in the service lane on her scooter and when I said, “Oh I’ve met you before–keep moving.” Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I am hoping for more information. I have now been approach, directly, three times by a young lady dressed in a pink coat (generally on a scooter) on 18th street, in Kalorama Park, and in the Parcourse under the Conn Ave bridge. I have not engaged in a conversation since this person is generally either smoking weed in the moment, or carrying a strong weed aroma. When I tried to ignore her while waiting for my takeout order (Los Cuates is killing it!), she refused to leave me alone and ended up verbally abusing me for several minutes before someone else caught her attention. I directly asked her to leave me alone and please stop harassing me on two of these occasions where I was not in a position to simply move along. I have seen this person doing the same to other people elsewhere in the area (on the Calvert Street bridge and down at Conn/Fla Ave intersection).

Has anyone discovered more here?”

Thanks to all who’ve passed on this scammer report from Reddit.
