Heartless conman steals $1500 from Pinjarra war veteran

A war veteran has been swindled of more than $1500 after a young man asking for a cup of milk talked his way into his Pinjarra home.

Ernie Allan, 94, who served three years in New Guinea in World War II, said he was preparing himself lunch about 11.20am on Tuesday when the man appeared in his doorway.

“I think my door might have been open and he came in and said ‘I only want a cup of milk, I have run out of milk’,” he said.

“I said, ‘I think I can fix you up for that’, and I got a bottle and poured some for him. We talked a little bit and then he said, ‘I better go’, and he shook my hand and away he went.”

Mr Allan said it was not until the next day when his neighbour came over for a cup of tea that he realised his wallet was missing.

“I shouldn’t have been so nice, it is strange how things happen,” he said. “I’ve never turned anybody down in my life but I am probably a silly old bugger.

“You feel annoyed with yourself but you feel as though you have been taken advantage of.”

Mr Allan had been to the bank only that morning and withdrawn the money.

Neighbour Wayne Cowcher said his security cameras captured a man arriving on a bicycle before leaving about six minutes later.

“It is heartless and it has been very upsetting for Ernie,” he said.

"Silly old bugger"? Not at all Ernie. You are obviously a decent, caring citizen who is willing to help others. As for the perpetrator, he is nothing but scum.

Amazingly, some people (like this thieving bastard) seem to be able to function without a conscience! Probably never had one to begin with. I've met people that don't appear to have any guilty feelings, even when I point out things that they've done, that are unprincipled, etc. They shrug and continue on, and I truly get the impression that they don't actually understand what I'm talking about! Sadly, it does take all types.... http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/mad.gif

Yes there are plenty of scum about. Hopefully there are still more decent people though.

There are some dead shits out there. A bit of a worry if one lives by oneself knowing that they walk among us. I hope someone recognizes him from the CCTV footage.
