Man Pretends To Be Homeless And Makes Tons of Money!

Remember the story back in November about the New York cop who saw a barefoot homeless guy in Times Square, and bought him a pair of boots?  Yeah . . . turns out the homeless guy is a con artist.  “New York Post” reporters followed him on Sunday, and found out he has an apartment.  He admitted he just POSES as a homeless guy, and makes hundreds of dollars a day doing it.

Back in November, The Coop Show was impressed by story of a New York cop who saw a homeless man sitting barefoot in Times Square, and spent $75 to buy him a brand new pair of shoes.  And a photo of the scene got 618,000 Facebooklikes.  About two weeks later, our we felt kind of bad after reporters caught up with the homeless guy, 54-year-old Jeffrey Hillman, and he said he felt EXPLOITED, because he didn’t get a DIME from all the media attention the story was getting.

And now, our enthusiasm is GONE and our hearts are back to being icy and black.  On Sunday, a few “New York Post” reporters followed Jeffrey after he left Times Square . . . and watched him head right back to an apartment.  He was counting a huge stack of bills as he walked up.  When they confronted him, he admitted he ISN’T homeless.  He’s just a con man who poses as a homeless guy . . . and makes HUNDREDS a day doing it.  At maybe $250 a day, 200 days a year, that makes it a $50,000-a-year, TAX-FREE job.  And as for the shoes he got from the cop . . . Jeffrey admitted he owns at least 30 pairs of shoes and boots.
