    A 'heads up' warning for all men who may be regular hardware store shoppers.
    Over the last month I 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 very hot 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your purchased items into your 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 another store.
    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 you are protesting, the other one steals your wallet.

    I had my wallet stolen October 14th,16th,18th,19th, 20th, twice on the 22nd and 23rd,24th, & 25th and three times today.

    And likely again 2 or 3 times this weekend.

    Tell your friends to be careful.

    I saw a good scam in the casino, this girl asked the croupiers if she could place her last 10 dollars and throw the dice for her Mama, the guys said yes of course Mam.
    She also said that she had a strange request and that she wanted to throw the dice naked.
    Any way the two croupiers agreed, seeing it was such an emotional throw.

    She took all her clothes off and jumped up and down shouting mama needs new shoes and threw the dice. She screemed I won I won , grabbed the money and her clothes and left.

    The two croupiers were stunned and stood there shocked, finally one said to the other " what did she throw?

    The other said I don't know I thought you were looking.

    I never saw that post...but it's good to get the warning out-then one can stock up on wallets at the dollar store.

    Frosty, look around the supermarket near you, they seem to like to spread their "services" around and in particular, for old farts who look like they are in need of some "jollies" and who also have fat wallets for the shearing...

    Use ziplock bags instead of wallets. They will keep the money dry. They are cheap. The girls will have something to carry your money home in.
