Sick scam

Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in
dark parking lots, etc. This is a warning for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it.

Since we Jeepers are mostly do it yourselfers I felt I needed to give a 'heads up' for those men who may be regular customers at Autozone, NAPA, O'rieillys even Lowe's and Home Depot. 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 friends.

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, they start
undressing. Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other
one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen Mar. 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th,
24th, & 29th. Also Apr. 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 vigilant.

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 Autozone, NAPA, O'rieillys , Etc.

So please, let all the older men that you know about this 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.)
You can't be too careful!
