Weird player experience in JeunoFollow

Okay, two days in a row now, the split second I zone into Lower Jeuno, I get two tells, back to back from some guy named Taikeshi (or something very similar). He's a 20WHM/7BLM who wears fishing gear and other various low-level gear while standing around Jeuno.

He sent: "hello can I borrow 3-20kgils please"
second tell: "i need weapons and armor for my trip to {Jeuno} please"

First time he did it I blew him off (while making the humorous observation that he's already -in- Jeuno). Yesterday when I zoned in, he did it again, word for word, exact same tells within SECONDS of me zoning in. I sent him a reply this time saying, "No, go earn your gil like the rest of us."

When I mentioned this to my Linkshell, a lot of them chimed up with "Hey I got that same tell from that guy too!".

Is this some kind of really weird-*** new begger bot or something?? Anyone else run into this?

Yes, i have recieved the same /tell two days in a row from lower jeuno. I believe its a macro due to the fact the tell was the same both days.

Kinda creepy ><

This happened to me, word for word the same. It's gotta be at least a macro... Possibly a true bot. I wonder if anyone has reported him to a GM?

I'm not sure what, if anything, a GM could or would do about it. A bot that stands around begging for money all day? There have got to be better ways to use a bot, for sure. Plus, this is just an assumption too. It could be some player who has that macroed and is really hopeful. But it does seem really unusual at best...
