Warning! Older Men Beware!
 
I received this warning from a good friend. I am grateful to him for providing me with this important heads-up.

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
customers at Lowe's, Home Depot, Costco, or even Wal-Mart.


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-age 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 unmentionables 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 May 4th, 9th, 10th, twice
on the 15th, the 17th, 20th, 24th, and the 29th and again on June 1st, 4th, 8th,
twice on the 16th & 17th, 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 Lowe's, to Home Depot,
to Wal-Mart.

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

It's not Vikingdad that is going to make that WalMart trip memorable. ;)

I've seen this story before and I absolutely love it.

I just left the dollar store with 37 .99 cent wallets and have filled them with cut newspaper.

As a 40 year old man I feel it's my responsibility to turn the scam around on these little hussies!

What's the address of that Wal Mart again?

Tack

I remember stories about people who would spend some amount of time and care, gift wrapping small boxes with ribbons & bows, and then forget them on their car seat after they parked in less than ideal neighborhoods. Lots of times they would forget to roll up the window or lock the door before they took a stroll around the block. These gifts were almost always stolen before they got back. They never learned.

This was a long, long, time ago, during a couple of NYC Sanitation strikes.

During the holiday season my uncle always played jokes on people. After a fishing trip, he placed the fish scraps in plastic bags, then would wrap them up to look like xmas gifts. He would then place these where he new someone would steal it.....I wish I could have seen these peoples faces when they opened the gift......:)
