Outrage as street beggar is seen driving off in £50,000 Audi TT sports car

35 year old man, Matthew Brinton, a professional beggar in Bank Street, Cornwall, who begs for alms was video taped packing up his 'begging gear' and his into an Audi TT in a car park and driving off in it.
The person who saw him recorded his actions and posted it online, people who saw it got enraged especially those who had given him money and or food in the past, they said they felt betrayed by the scam.

According to Daily Express, contrary to what people thought, Mr. Brinton isn't homeless, he allegedly has a home in Newquay home.
He says since the video was circulated on Facebook, the police has told him that he's had several death threats.

Mr Brinton said:
"I have not seen any of the social media posts because I do not have access to the internet but according to the police I've had lots of death threats.
"People are assuming too much and I'm getting a lot of abuse, which is pushing me to suicide.
"This has been going on for years. "There is only so much someone can take."
Inspector Dave Meredith at Newquay police said:
"He had a few threats, with people making stupid comments on social media.
"We've told him, you need to be careful because of the video on Facebook; there's lots of ill-feeling and animosity because of it".
Some of the Facebook comments supported him while others were against him.

One said: 'Leave the man alone the dog Hazel is well cared for. Vent anger towards what is really making you angry - (it's) awful bullying a vulnerable man'.

One critic said: 'I'm particularly disgusted as he conned £40 from an elderly gentleman I know to 'pay for a B&B' for the night' Then went home! The poor elderly gent was distraught that his kindness had been abused in such a way'.

Another said: ''I brought him hot food and a hot drink was very rude and ungrateful in front of my sons who were 8 and 12 at the time. I told them most homeless people were grateful and not rude like him'.

Another wrote: 'Why judge people you don't have to? He is an ok bloke just lost in life'.

Brinton said the car was left to him by his Grandmother but was stolen soon after the video appeared on social media.

Hmmmmmm nice one.
Ordinary £50,000 begging is his own office so he is free to buy it if hausa useless pedophile people can beg because the are created to beg and curse to beg as usual so i don't see any thing bad there.

kayode odusanya said...

A 'professional' beggar? So, begging is now a profession? What I see about this guy is he probably tried begging one day when he didn't have any money and saw how it easy it was as long as you had time and could position yourself in a place many people pace, so he got lazy and turned it to a 'profession.'

I know a man in Ikeja too, his car I very very fine, them no born my car well beside his car, and he is a beggar, he operates on Toyin in Ikeja, I will blow his deal one day. He begs only rich men for money, he walks to them whenever they park and 'professionally' request for assistance. He parks on Mojisola street off Allen and go out to do the shii.

This guy, what's the sense in the comparison you have made. I'm very sure that you don't know what an airport looks like talk less of knowing whether the whites are worst. Oga, stop commenting on this blog all in a bid to seek relevance. And if it's because of the 25,000 Linda Ikeji hands out every month, then you can continue and end up being like this beggar you have just abused.
