Had a new one today - approached by a chap who claims to have become a Muslim and associated with some extremists. He has now seen the light and left, but owes 150 and is being threatened with violence if he doesn't cough up today! Wants a loan not a gift, and produced passport to prove his ID.

Ever so plausible but feels like a scam. Anyone heard of this before? Any offers?

I'd report it to the police.

Some lovely hijabs in the ad accompanying your post...

Google's contextual search does provide some amusing adverts

If I looked as lovely as those girls do I'd wear a Hijab too..looks sensible wear for this cold weather!

Sounds like a scam.

I doubt a hijab provides much warmth, and it must be very annoying when it gets wet.
