Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the
mall and in dark parking lots, etc. I wanted to pass this on in case you haven't
heard about it. A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular
customers at Home Depot, Costco, auto parts stores, or even
Wal-Mart. This one caught me totally by surprise. Over the last
month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping.
Simply going out to get parts and 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-age girls
will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your
purchases 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, except VooDoo). When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No'
but instead ask for a ride to McDonald's. 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 Feb 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th,
again on the 17th, 20th, 24th, and the 29th. Also Mar 1st, 4th,
8th, twice on the 10th, 12th, the 31st and hopefully again this
upcoming weekend. So tell your friends to be careful. What a
horrible way to take advantage of us older men.
Warn your friends to be vigilant.
By the way, Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found
even cheaper ones for $.99 at the Dollar Store and bought them
out in three of their stores. Also, you never get to eat at
McDonald's. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and
forth from home, to Home Depot, to Wal-Mart.
So please, send this on to all the men that you know and warn
them to be on the lookout for this scam. Be extremely careful between the hours of
12:30pm to 3:00 pm these are the best times, I mean worst, to encounter this problem.
