FWIW, I have made no assumptions about what type of scam Sue meant. I added my postscript about people asking for money in response to Richard's post. I wouldn't call panhandling a scam, exactly -- to me, scam implies some trickery, and however annoying or problematic panhandling may be, it's pretty straightfoward, IME.
