Ryan Bray of Bradenton, FL was at a stop light recently watching a panhandler ask motorists for money.

When Bray was able to pull up to the panhandler, Bray felt compelled to offer the panhandler a job. Bray said that he’d pay the apparent down-and-out man $15 per hour to come do some yard for for Bray. But the Panhandler flat-out refused the offer… started cursing at Bray… kicked Bray’s car, threatened to kill Brays wife and then walked away.

Shocked by the reaction, Bray drove home, made his own sign, and went back to the intersection were the panhandler was still begging and outed the panhandler as a fake.

Bray’s sign read: “I offered him $15 an hour to do yard work for me and he refused. If we as a community stop paying them, they will leave our neighborhoods.”

Bray then walked everywhere the panhandler walked to let drivers know that this guy doesn’t really want to work… that it was a scam.

A local reporter caught hold of the story and went out to interview the panhandler… you can watch the ABC Action News report on this story below:
