Wish Upon A Hero

A few days ago the was a post in my area asking for food to feed her four children. I offered to meet her at the grocery store close by and give her some groceries. She sent me a message stating that her food issue had been solved and she was okay now.  Then today I log on and see a new post from the same woman once again asking for money for food.  Once again I made the same offer and once again she turned me down.  I saw that another lady was willing to maill a gift card to her and she accepted that offer.  Now I feel she is a scammer.  I emailed the lady and made her aware of the issue.  She had seen my comment saying I would buy her food and made a comment that it would take a few days for the card to get there and that hopefully I could tide her over.  But if you were truly hungry wouldn't you take any offer to feed you and your family.

It just upset me. Because I was more than willing to give her food....and had she met me I probably would have tried to buy at least a movie or board game for the family.  I can't afford to do much as I am struggling this year.

It could be a scam or maybe she doesn't really want to meet anyone in person for whatever reason?

I've had similar experiences. I saw a local woman asking for money for warm clothes. I told her I had lots gently used and some new with tags. She said the same, she had already received clothes but her post is still up and she has since accepted other offers of gift cards.
