Ah-yup. You were conned.

So what?

Could you spare the money? Did you feel better giving it to him because you were helping someone, or did you feel guilty because you feared it might be a con?

Since you will never know if the guy was going to buy food, carfare, ammo, heroin, collectible postage stamps, or an inflatable doll, if you can spare it and it makes you feel as if you are helping someone, I don't see the problem.

If you can't spare it, or don't know if it's on the up-and-up, don't give. Simple as that.
