Scammers at the airport gas stations

"Scammers" is a bad word, and I truly don't think of myself as a better person. But I do get a little nervous when approached.

"Wash your widows?", "Got some change?" And a really elaborate one last year "I'm out of gas and I just need a gallon or so to get back home what do you say?".

I don't think it's a complete coincidence that these are the two gas stations that I just around the corner from the rental car depots. I've been to a lot of places in the US and not had much of this sort of approach but this is where the tourists are, right?

  1. Even though they might be "scammers", but to what extent do we really know their intent? They could be really down on their luck after moving the whole day and needed that little money for a meal to last just one day. I always keep a storage of loose change for such incidences.
