She’s been stuffing her expensive purse with sympathetic drivers’ cash.
Police in New Jersey recently came across a panhandler they say is a scammer.
Cops said on Monday the woman walked in and out of traffic with a sign reading, “I have 1 baby. Please in the name of God help me to buy baby stuff and diapers.”
But her story didn’t check out.
Police said that while asking for cash, she had a “$500 purse, some jewelry and a new iPhone X” with her.
Police said the woman claimed to be from Romania and now living in Queens.
She admitted to cops that she and a few other women had been dropped off in the area to panhandle. She was issued a ticket for impeding traffic and received a summons for soliciting without a permit.
Union Police took to Facebook to expose the woman and warn residents about fake panhandlers.
