I don't have time for people like that, so I usually just give them my credit card number.

I usually tell them, Sorry I cant help you but If you need money to buy stuff on Home then go sell a game or two.. Maybe you have a spare controller you can get a few bucks outta.. I bet you could sell your cell phone too..

There's absolutely no reason that if your on Home you should have to beg people for what they earned.. If you cant afford the game don't play..

I just block out that they're actually talking to me.

Or, I walk away with my friends.

Beggars don't last long in my friend circle.

Dropped from my Friends List immediately. If they have the guts to write anything in response to that, it's block time.

 

People who do this know full well what they're doing. I believe that shutting them out cold sends a much stronger message than trying to help.

I get this a fair amount of the time,What i usually do is ask the person HOW they could walk up to some 1 you DON'T know and ask them to buy you somthing or give them money,That does it EVERY time,they were not ready for a question,they usually stand stunned for a second,then run off,Been that way for almost 5 yrs,I really wish i had ALOT more to share,cause i would,but it always bothers me that some 1 would ask a perfect stranger somthing like that,I've never reported any 1 or blocked them for it,Don't have to,the question got it done.....Smiley Wink

I've actually seen people ask others to buy them a PSN Card or gift them something. And, Wasn't maybe 3 months ago. I was in the Playstation Hoem Poker room. And, This dude. Forget his name. But, He hit some other users for some chips. And also hit me up for some. And, After having to tell him 3-4 times. "You can't give chips on here." I think he finally got it. Cuase, He finally stopped. Well, At least till I left. I can't stand people who bum. If you need money for a PSN Card or for something on Home. Go get a job!! Or, Do odd jobs around your neighborhood for people. Or, Do like jimmynet said, Sell a game You don't play anymore or a accessory. Or some some Movies/CD's you do want anymore. Hell, Just do something & stop being a bum. It's that kinda stuff that will get you reported and supended/banned from PSN.

Yeah, you're probably right. Usually the first instinct is the correct one.
