Clever scam... Warn your male friends!

This is very serious stuff! 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 holidays get closer. This is a 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Target, Bunnings, Big W and K-Mart customers. This one caught me by surprise.

Over the last couple of weeks I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get some simple Christmas gifts 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 very attractive 20-something girls come over to your car dressed as Santa's Helpers as you are packing your shopping into the boot and both start helping. What catches your eye is the very short bright Red Santa helper miniskirts they are wearing and the tight fitting Deep V neck red top shirt with their breasts almost falling out. It is impossible not to look.

When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say politely decline and instead ask you for a ride to McDonalds to get some hot cocoa and a snack. 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 November 24th, 26th 28th 29th, 30th, twice on Dec 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful! What a horrible way to take advantage of older men during this holiday season. Warn your friends to be vigilant. These girls will not give up - they have proven it over and over again with me.

By the way, Target 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, Sam's Club, Wal-Mart and Target.

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)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all who Celebrate.

That happened to me a bunch of times too, but after 5-6 times, I finally caught on to what was happening.

Sometimes, I get distracted and lose focus when the light reflected off of tight, tanned, skin gets in my eyes.

I think male instinct will take over Wayne. Don't fight it.

I have wondered and wondered all during the holiday season WHY my DH was making soooooooooooooooooooo many trips to Target....yet nothing was appearing under the Christmas tree!

And I sure couldn't figure out why is clothes were all wrinkled after he came home when I knew I'd just ironed them.............

we won't even mention here why his hair was all messed up!
