A Christmas scam warning for us older guys...
 
OLDER MEN SCAMS
Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves
at the mall, parking lots, etc.
But this is the first warning I have seen for men,
and I wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it.

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular customers at
Lowe's, Home Depot, Costco, or even Wal-Mart.
Last month I became a victim of a clever scam while shopping.
Simply going to get supplies 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 up to your vehicle
as you are putting away your purchases.
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 in 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
June 4th, 9th, 10th,
twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th.
Also July 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 the m out in three of the ir 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 Costco, Etc.

So please,
send this on to all the older men that you know. :p

Thanks for the tip... Sounds like a good time to put a Go Pro camera in your vehicle so you can share the video with your friends here.
I will keep an eye open for these horrible ladies.
