Exclamation Home Depot Scam!!!

A 'heads up' for those men 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. You agree and they get in the
backseat. 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 on March 4th, 9th,
10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, & 24th 29th. Also April 1st,
4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th, 30th, three times last
Saturday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful.
P.S. Walmart has wallets on sale 2.99 each.

I always thought it was a bad idea for Home Depot to give their employees a commission on wallet sales.

I heard the same joke, but they were offering a different array of services.

Um, if it's a joke, that wasn't funny. (not trying to be mean, but it wasn't)

If it's not a joke, then I want to know how the HELL you managed to fall for it that many times. Once, sure...twice...ok...even three times I would understand, but that many times man...really?

Here is another version of that, but real.
Male Western tourists who visited eastern europe (back when it was all under soviet control) would be lured into the bushes by some good looking girl. Tourists were induced to remove their Levi jeans. The girl then ran off with the jeans. Levi jeans were worth big money in Soviet europe back then, more than the equivalent dollar amount in the US.
