    SCAM Warning/I was robbed

    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. This will only become more commonplace as the older men travel south. A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Lowe's, Home Depot, or Costco 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, Home Depot, and Costco.

    Same thing happens to me all the time. Where are the cops?

    That's just not right!

    How could you have been dumb enough to have your wallet stolen like that nineteen times?

    Even at $3.00 per wallet your losses are beginning to add up. You are "out" nearly $60.00 just in wallet costs.

    You must be incredibly gullible.

    I cannot believe that our forum members are showing absolutely no compassion for you at all.

    Are they the same girls? Do they always want you to ride you to the same McDonald's?

    Have you reported all of the incidents to the Police so that other innocent men do not fall prey to the same horrific scam?

    I hope they eventually catch those nasty, dishonest, thieving females and lock them away for many years.

    You must feel awfully traumatized and violated.

    Have you sought counseling?

    Cheese, I felt pretty good about it until I read your post. I was planning on going to go back tomorrow.
