Latest scam to threaten older men.

This e-mail was sent to members on a Military Website, complaining that
once again our government does nothing to protect our Senior Citizens.

The latest scam to threaten older men and separate them from their money has started in CA. and is working it's way east. It involves dozens of scantily clad college aged women that approach older men in big box stores under the pretense of helping them load their store purchases.
".................. I was accosted in a Lowes parking lot while loading several flats of ground cover and garden supplies into my Class B M/H.
Two friendly young women approached me and asked could they help me load my RV. Needless to say I could not ignore the attention much less the view so I agreed.
After loading I offered to pay which they declined and asked could I give them a ride to a nearby fast food restaurant. Once inside my RV one completely disrobed and was 'all over me'! This went on for several minutes when all of a sudden they both exited the RV and disappeared. Once my blood pressure had reached a somewhat normal 190/130 I was able to determine they had stolen my wallet.
Calling the police seemed futile so I cut my losses and returned home explaining to my wife 'I guess I lost my wallet when loading, maybe someone will return it to the store.'
Thinking this was not an isolated incident I returned to Lowes and purchased building supplies the next day.
Again I was accosted by two more young beauties.
I then tried Depot, Costco, Sam's and even Walmart.
In all I was accosted on July 8,11,14,15,18,21, twice on the 24, the 30,..... August 1,3,4,5 8 and 12.
Please be aware of your surroundings in these big box stores.
On a more positive note our local 99 cent store has a fresh supply of disposable plastic wallets priced at three for $4.99"..............

Young Chicks wanting to work is the give away. A ride is a no-no, you could have been killed.

One more trip and he would have had a heart attack or a stroke. I mean, just how much can an old man handle in that type of situation(s).

I think from now on your wife should go to the store with you. Then take her to the Cracker Barrel (or some other nice "sit down" restaurant) afterwards as a reward.
