Home Depot Scam Warning

Post by sushrukh » Tue Sep 22, 2009 10:42 am

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Home Depot customers.
This one caught me by surprise.

Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out,
very traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.
Here's how the scam works:


Two good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are
packing your supplies into the trunk. 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 McDonalds. 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.


Now I've had my wallet stolen June 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th,
24th & 29th. Also July 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 10th, 13th, 16th &
22nd, August 1,3,7,9, 15th & three times this morning, and very likely again tomorrow.
So tell your friends to be careful.


P.S. Wal-Mart 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 Home
Depot.

Be careful out there. :mrgreen:

I'll have to remember to bring a video camera to Home Depot from now on (and leave my wallet at home).

When Matt first blocked this, I was thinking... Did he even read it?

I laughed, and thought that this guy had the right idea!

What brand and style wallets attract these women?

Now if only I could get my own car. Wait, the closest HD is 30 miles from me. We have a Lowes in town. :evil:

Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.
