‘Fake’ Asthma attack

There are too many people out today looking to make easy money.

I read about a ‘Faked Asthma attack’ in Rush Green recently.

I have posted the story below.  The awful thing about this is that it might delay you acting in the correct way in future.

I was in my front garden a bloke walking by heavy breathing coughing, gasping for air said “can you help me I left my asthma medication at home, can you lend me some money for a taxi so I can get home quick”, I said “there’s a bus stop there” he started to get a bit angry, and as an asthmatic myself with spare pumps which I offered him one he almost collapsed on to the floor say help me I need a taxi, so I got my mobile phone he asked what I was doing I said phoning the police and ambulance you look in a right state you need to go to the hospital.
It was amazing how he recovered muttered something under his breath ran away and jumped onto a bus and disappeared.’
