(WDIV/NBC NEWSCHANNEL)  Abe Hagenston, 42, is homeless and those who tell him they don't have any change need a new excuse. Hagenston takes  Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

He also has a website.

Abe’s been on the streets in Detroit for 10 years and goes by the name "Honest Abe."

"Will work" isn't just a meaningless slogan for Hagenston. You can actually hire him for odd jobs on his website. "I've done some painting I have taken a couple various friends of mine out on team jobs I had to do."

Of course he'll take a donation and yes that means he takes credit cards.  He takes credit card donations using a square that connects with his phone.

He also has big ideas including an app to weed out those fake panhandlers and a non-profit to benefit all homeless people.
