A street corner beggar is receiving death threats after footage surfaced of him leaving the corner where he panhandles for money, under the guise of being homeless and destitute, and piling into his Audi TT, a luxury car with a base price $42,000. People are, justifiably so, really goddamn angry that this panhandler would be sitting on the corner all day and swindling them out of money under the presumption that this guy was homeless, and couldn’t afford to feed himself.
While the death threats are unwarranted, just think about how pissed off you would be if a ‘homeless’ panhandler on the corner weaseled you out of $5, saying he needed to get a ‘hot meal’, and then you saw this video of that same person getting into his Audi TT, a luxury car that’s nicer than the vehicle you drive yourself.
A persistent beggar in a town centre has received death threats after he was filmed getting into his sports car.
Matthew Brinton – who is regularly seen in Newquay, Cornwall, with his border collie Hazel – was captured with his Audi TT.
But the 35-year-old said the car was bequeathed to him by his grandmother and was stolen soon after the film appeared on social media.
More than 100 people have commented on the post, stating they feel “conned” after giving Mr Brinton food and money as he was portraying himself as being homeless, when in reality he has somewhere to live in Newquay.
He claims that he’s misunderstood, that he can’t read any of the social media posts because he doesn’t have access to the Internet. That his car was stolen and he’s fallen on the worst times of his life. If you’re smart, though, I think it’s pretty easy to see that this man is just one big con artist. Check out the video above.
