Default Older Mans SCAM!

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.

For men who may be regular customers at Lowe's, Home Depot, Costco, and even Wal-Mart. 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.
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. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' but instead ask for a ride to maybe a 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 October 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also November 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th & 27th, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful. Warn your friends to be vigilant. By the way, Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99. I found even cheaper ones for $.99 at the Dollar Store and bought out three stores. What a horrible way to take advantage of us older fellows.

Also, I've lost 11 pounds running back and forth from Lowe's, to Home Depot, to Costco and Wal-Mart.

Probably so C.Q. I'd be very diligent if I were you. (You can probably find some really inexpensive clutches or small handbags at Sams Club.)
