We have quite a strange situation at the moment. A family member has a shop and used to own a main street take away in the same area. They have been in the street for about 7 years. They had a semi-regular customer at the take away. They sold it about 2 years ago and opened up another shop. In the past week the old customer has returned. Despite the family members protests the old customer shows up every day with large amounts of fruit, veg, bread, sweets etc. worth between $80-$120. This particular family member can be quite loud and assertive and tells him to stop bringing gifts in no uncertain terms, it doesn't seem to deter him. He is apparently a singer, well known and well paid in his particular ethnic community (I haven't found a trace of him online). His wife became ill and died a few years ago, he claims they had a valuable business and real estate which was sold and he has no financial worries. Yesterday he bought live chickens, he then accidentally dropped their cage and I ended up chasing one of the chickens down the main street in traffic. He managed to get the 4 chickens into a tiny little hire car to go back to his motel, scratching the vinyl seats in the process and the birds doing their business on the seat (I have no idea how he planned to sneak them in to the motel but he claimed the room had a private courtyard to release the chickens into). Around the time I was stopping a 4wd in the middle of the street to catch the chicken I became concerned that the fellow may not be mentally healthy. The whole situation with the chickens was not something a reasonable person would do. He is quite a flamboyant dresser, wears a large gold love heart pendant with a photo of himself etched into it and I'm not sure whether he is eccentric and lonely or there are mental health issues. When I was first told about him I had concerns that he may be trying to win their trust to con them. After meeting him briefly yesterday those concerns have been allayed and I am more concerned about him. He has shown up today and wants the family members full name and residential address to add them into his will. I told them not to give the details and to get his solicitor to call them so we can: A) Rule out the family member becoming a victim of ID theft/fraud (DD would be done on the 'solicitor' as well) B) Relay concerns to the solicitor about his behaviour and inform a next of kin if there are in fact MH issues at play. Not sure what else can be done. We can't force a mental health assessment on a stranger and he isn't at risk of physical/self harm so it's not a matter for paramedics/police either.
