Gentlemen, beware! Ladies, warn your men! Here is a scam that has recently come to my attention. Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall, in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. It’s a “heads up” for those men who may be regular Lowe's, Home Depot, Costco, or even Wal-Mart customers. This one caught me totally by surprise. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it. Below is one man’s account of his terrifying experience.
Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.
Here's how the scam works: Two nice-looking, college-aged girls will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your shopping into your vehicle. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. (It's impossible not to look.) When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say no but instead ask for a ride to McDonalds. You agree and they climb into the vehicle. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.
I had my wallet stolen Mar. 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 25th. Also Feb. 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th & 28th, three times last Monday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.
Warn your friends to be vigilant. What a horrible way to take advantage of us older men!
Please send this on to all the older men that you know and warn them to be on the lookout for this scam.
P.S. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found even cheaper ones for $.99 at the Dollar Store and bought out their stock in three of their stores. Also, you never will get to eat at McDonalds. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth from Lowe's, to Home Depot, to Costco, Etc.
P.P.S. The best times are just before lunch and around 4:30 in the afternoon.
