A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Lowe's, Home Depot, Costco, or even Wal-Mart customers. 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.

Two seriously good-looking, college-aged girls will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your shopping into your vehicle. 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 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 Sep. 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also Oct. 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 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 will 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 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.)
Thank you from all of us older men who shop in these places. This is clearly a public safety issue, and I thank you for your sense of civic duty by passing on this info. It was very brave of you to publicly admit to being the victim of such a horrible crime. You are a courageous man.

BTW - just a random question, you don't list a city in your info. Where exactly in the USA are you? A street address, linked to a Google map, listing nearby home improvement stores (just so we have some landmarks to navigate by)would be very helpful.
