My mate AL over at the Catskill Conservative has published a warning of a particularly clever shake down that is happening in the US, but from experience I find that when something starts over there it is only a matter of time before it arrives here. It is currently centered on Home Depot over there, but it is only a matter of time before it occurs at Bunnings, or Mitre 10 here.
EDITOR’S NOTES: Received this urgent email from a contractor friend of mine. Read and heed.
A ‘heads up’ for those men who may be regular Home Depot customers. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while shopping. 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 loading your purchases. 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 store. You agree and they get in the backseat. On the way, they start undressing each other and making out. 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 December 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also January 1st, 4th, twice on the 8th, 11th, 12th, three times last Saturday, probably tomorrow, and very likely again this upcoming weekend. So tell your friends to be very careful.
P.S. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale 2.99 each.
Editors note: Who says that conservatives don’t have a sense of humor?
