    Scam Targeting Older Men

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Just a "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 Lowe's or Home Depot
    customers. This one 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 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 McDonalds. You agree 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 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 &
    28th, 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
    older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant.

    Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found cheaper ones for $1.99
    at K- Mart and bought them out. Also, you never will get to eat at
    McDonalds. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth to Lowe's
    and Home Depot.

    Thanks for the help on where to buy wallets cheap. Happens in Missouri, too.
