Scam in NHCty

Recently I was doing a little late night shopping at Walmart, Monkey Junction. I was approached by a very polite man telling me how embarrassed he was, but needed to know if I could Help him out. He had a sick family member in Raleigh and needed gas money to get to them. I told him I was not able to assist. He then walked away and began asking everyone who came out. A few nights later, this man was back in the Walmart parking lot. I notified the store and when I came outside, he had just moved to another part of the parking lot. This has been going on for quite awhile.
