Thought I’d better alert you to this scam. Be careful…you could be next.

A warning for those Jocks who may be regular Home Depot customers. 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 seriously good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping 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 another Home Depot or Lowe’s. 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 September 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th and 24th. Also October 1st, 4th, twice on the 6th, three times just yesterday and very likely this coming weekend and next. So tell your friends to be careful.

Wash the wind shield YES! Ride heck no! My tools take up all the passenger seating…and with most of us LJ’s our tools take presidence over a skimpy top. They come second…..lol
Thanks for the tip….Here’s going to the Depot with a dirty wind shield…..lol
