Warning: Scam Against Older Men

Got this one from my buddy Mike – it should make you chuckle.

imageWomen 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-aged 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 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 Dec. 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also Jan.  1st, 3rd, & 4th, twice on the 7th 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 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.)

  2. Bill,
    Good one, I always bring my spare wallet to Home Depot I keep waiting but I’m never “the victim”.

    drop the jokes stick to business. I know where to get jokes. d

    • What an obnoxious comment. I’m not in the least bit interested in following your “orders”.

      Here’s a clue for you. When you write this blog, you can then make the rules. In the meantime, I make the rules – and, I’ll post whatever suits me and, the majority of readers here.

      Obviously, that doesn’t include you – so, run along somewhere else, where your lack of good manners might be acceptable.

    Hey Bill,
    Humour is what makes the world go round, so “D” should get a sense of one lol.
    I wish we had more “scams” like this here in Oz. I might go for a drive and see if I can find girls dressed like that in the pic.
    Cheers

    • Hey Mal,

      Given that there have been 4 posts to Twitter, and 4 post to Facebook on this from here, looks like the humour in this hit the spot. Just like you said “Humour is what makes the world go round”. 🙂

      I can’t even begin to imagine the type of person who would choose to give instructions to a blogger regarding content. Bizarre, really.

      Best,

      Bill

    Hi Bill,

    Keep the jokes, drop “d”. I think I know what the “d” stands for. There was a character in Scrubs called Dr Mickhead; I think you know where I’m going with this :).

    Every so often you will get idiots like this who think they are above us humans. I might start a blog for them, I could call it “Help! My Head’s Up My Own Ass”.

    Kind regards,
    John

    • Hi John,

      The quote from today’s TNN column sums it up – “Anyone who takes himself too seriously always runs the risk of looking ridiculous; anyone who can consistently laugh at himself does not.” Not a coincidence that I grabbed this specific quote. 🙂

      Best,

      Bill

    Hi again Bill,

    At what point did you wake up?

    Kind regards

    Bill
    Really enjoyed your reply to “d”
    Now, can you give me directions to the nearest Lowe’s (or Home Depot if Lowe’s isn’t near)

    This is hilarious! I sent it to all my males friends and every single one of them replied back saying they loved it! Great post. Nice to break things up with great humor. Thx!

    • Hi Naver,

      That’s great to hear. 🙂

      Have to agree – a little humor thrown into the mix can help make one’s day a little brighter.

      Thanks for dropping in.
