Also, there is nothing to beware. Move on, find another source to ask for help if you see the one you approached first hesitating. The idea is to get that assistance and not to linger over and worry over why people won't help.
"A love affair with knowledge will never end in heartbreak" - Michael Garrett Marino
When we require some help it is always better to ask the people who can really help us. Depending on a single source is also not correct. Really who wants to help us may have some other priorities and may not be able to help us, but he may be exploring the possibilities to help us. So we should think from their side also. So have a fallback arrangement also. Everybody will have some or other reason for their acts.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Though in long run these people are already known in the society for their behavior but still we sometimes get carried with their narration and talks that how they had helped others in past.
It is said that a friend in need is a friend in deed. So such people do not deserve our friendship and it is better to avoid such persons if they extend seemingly warm appearance towards us.
Knowledge is power.
But there are few people who will pretend as if your wish is their command but when you really need them they will never ever be present to help you. They will assure you but will ditch you in the end moment. We should beware of such people who make false promises. One should stop entertaining such people and make them realize what they did by making false commitment and putting you in false position.
