Topic: Just a heads up warning....

Not sure where to post this but be careful....read the following.......

A 'heads up' for the men of the family who may be regular Home
Depot customers.

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 20-21 year-old girls come over to
your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They
both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with
their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is
impossible not to look.

When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and
instead, ask you for a ride to another Home Depot. You agree
and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start undressing.
Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts
crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen on March 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th,
17th, 20th, & and 24th 29th. Also April 1st, 4th, twice on the 8th,
16th, 23rd, 26th, 30th, three times last Saturday and very likely
again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends/family to be careful.

P.S. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale $2.99 each.

You can order a gross of wallets on eBay really cheap...

HMM...you could carry one of those plastic wallets the magic shops sell to hold your packet tricks. They're less than 50 cents.

Nice story!

You have B&Q. It's about the same. I think some girls from New Orleans work the B&Q in Watford.

It already happened to me everyday so far for the past week. I got nothing to lose because I never brought a wallet or money as they expected. I also return bringing back the same products to put in my trunk.

It was funnier when Mick Close told it.

Message: Posted by: JRob (Mar 23, 2009 05:42PM)
I went back to Home Depot today and it seems that some pri...errrr concerned citizen called the cops who arrested the girls and have moved on to another state.
I would like to find the SO...errr guy and cherry bomb his mailbo...errr...congratulate him.
