Scam Alert!

A 'Heads Up' for men who might be regular Home Depot or Lowe's customers.

I recently 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 purchases into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, 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' and instead ask you for a ride to another Home Depot or Lowes. You agree and they get in 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 December 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th & 24th. Also January 1st, 4th, twice on the 6th, three times just yesterday, and very likely this coming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful.
