Really? For free?

This is a bit weird isn't it?

Call me an old cynic, but yes it is. Does he have any feedback?

Sounds like a scam. He covers a wide area. Who collects and delivers the stuff? Who pays the petrol? What does he get out of it? There's a big market for good quality used clothes. Would you ever see them again?

Yeah, that’s a scam.

Unless he does your first bin bag for free and charges for subsequent ones? Although he doesn't say so.
Or is he trying them on?

Can you message him and enquire about his ironing service? You have to and report back. I need to know if I should move (tomorrow) into his free ironing area.

He's a Carer for his wife and he has time to stand all day ironing for free??? Wow I don't know many carers who would have the time or the energy to iron all day while caring for someone let alone doing the world and it's uncles ironing for FREE....ConfusedHmm

He's probably a submissive and this is something his "master" has told him to do to humiliate him.

Subs and doms do weird shit....public humiliation is big. His dom has probably told him to place the ad and he'll do strangers' ironing whilst his dom tells him what a bad boy he is.

YUK!

It could be genuine I guess. Weird people about an all. I wouldn’t risk it though. Or it could be like someone else says, a sub/Dom situation. Or a dirty perv. I’d message and ask questions. Obviously report back to us.

My guess is that he is a submissive, and will be doing your ironing naked while his wife scolds him in the background.

This is in my area, and so I had a search for it. He has another post that says £15 per bagConfused

People are trying to figure out what kind of weird scam it is, on the comments.

Message him and ask if he'd do a job lot as a one off, as you and your colleagues in the fraud squad are very interested and need your suits doing.

Do you have a bag of clothes for the charity shop that you could get him to do as a test? Just to see what happened? If he is stealing them to send abroad then it’s not the end of the world, likewise if they come back stained.

Message him to enquiry about your clothes being ironed, then send another from a different account saying your husband needs all his y-fronts ironed. See if they get the same enthusiastic response :o

Is it a tax dodge?
When you get your ironing back, hopefully perfectly ironed and nothing amiss! You’d feel you’d have to give him twenty pounds say and he’d consider that a gift rather than earnings so he’d not pay tax? Then he only ‘works’ in future for paying customers?
