Beware The Scam


You, my trusted peeps, are always in my thoughts. Because of this, along with my constant desire to provide the most up-to-date material, information and educational enhancing vocabularies I can find or come across, I give you this from my own experience in hopes of making the world a better, safer place.

As you know, women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. But I have never seen any warnings for men. So, I want to pass this on in case you haven't heard about it, and to save you from going through all that I have had to go through.

It’s a 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Lowe’s, Home Depot, or Costco customers. This scheme 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 came over to my car as I was packing my shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping my windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When I thanked them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead they ask for a ride to McDonalds.

I agreed 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 me. As I am about to unload myself, the other one steals my wallet. I had my wallet stolen September 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also October 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 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 an older man.

Warn your friends to be vigilant!

Your welcome!

Olly, it is the least I could do for them.

That is a pricless funny story. Now you've given me an idea for a parttime job with my sister.

I just told my husband and he is heading to Lowe's with big hopes and a bigger grin. Hmm?

I'm moving to Woodstock immediately! Somebody - why not me (?) - needs to be a collaborative witness to these dastardly attacks.

Bless your heart.

hmmm...you know the version I heard was a little different. I'm glad it ended well for you though.

Coffeypot said...

What's your version? I might want to try that one.

That is awful. I can't imagine that with some many incidents like that, the police weren't watching closer in that particular area.
