NT - Clever Scam - taking advantage of older men

Recommended Posts

I am trying to warn all the men that I know!!!

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.

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Lowe's or Home Depot customers. This one caught me 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 friends.

Here's how the scam works: Two seriously good-looking 20-something girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say, 'No' and instead ask you for a ride to McDonald's.

You agree and they get into the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen June 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also July 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th & 28th, three times last Monday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant. If your memory is bad, write it down to remember this trick!

Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found cheaper ones for $1.99 at Dollar General and the Dollar Store and bought them out. Also, you never will get to eat at McDonald's. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth to Lowe's and Home Depot.

>> this one is another legend <<

No it isn't, silly. It's a joke! Read again the fifth paragraph, especially the last six words.

I head about this earlier this month and I don't think it's a scam at all.

It needs to be treated with the seriousness that it deserves.

We need to be on the lookout for this sort of thing and warn others about it.

I went out and bought a dozen wallets and have spent over $300 on gas driving between Lowes and Home Depot just in the past 10 days.

KC,

Could you please update this post when that scam is scheduled for the Lodi Lowes?

Thanks in advance. Will be checking the price of wallets at WalMart. Could stand to lose a few pounds as well.
