People feel cheated by a man in Ottawa County man who took to Facebook Wednesday to say that he'd run out of gas and  could somebody help him, please?  

One man who did take some gasoline to Josh Ramsey in Zeeland drove up from Saugatuck. 

Later, others on Facebook discovered several people had taken gasoline to Ramsey, as he kept asking for it. 

One man's map app showed that these requests were coming from different places, meaning that the scammer was driving around while claiming to be out of gas.    

WOOD TV reports this is not illegal in Ottawa County, however Ramsey ended up arrested on another charge.  Reportedly he stole a car, yesterday, as well.
