Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and
in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for
men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it. This is
a 'heads up' for those men who may be regular customers at Lowe's, Home
Depot, 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 supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic.
Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your older
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 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).
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, one starts undressing and then starts crawling all over you,
while the other one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen Sept.
4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also Oct.
1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th & 27th, and very likely
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
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 Lowe's, to Home Depot, to
Wal-Mart, etc. So please, send this on to all the older men that you
know and warn them to be on the lookout for this scam. (The best times
are just before lunch and around 4:30 in the afternoon.
