In The Star of July 22 I read a letter from a Professor M Winter.
Mate, can’t you see a scam when it’s in front of your eyes?
Your words “It will be a dark day when ignore and walk on becomes a mantra” does give out the wrong signals.
If you are a do-gooder then good for you.
But sentiments like this send out all the wrong signals to the con artists and only make people like us as a soft touch if you are taken in by such scams. Don’t listen to this bleating by this man.
If you feel the need to help take them to the ticket office and if need be buy them a sandwich. But don’t give them cash.
