I have never heard of "got a light" being used as the beginning of a scam. I've been asked for a light, always said no because I never have one, and the asker has always just moved along -- unless his actual intent was to chat me up, which might be annoying, depending on the circumstances, but I wouldn't call it a scam.

ETA: Around here, people who want you tp give them money just go ahead and ask for money. Occasionally you'll get some elaborate hard-luck story, but they launch right into that without any got-a-light? pretext, IME.
