[Ok, I didn't write this but found it in an email. Kudos to the author; male readers will truly be saved! - dg]

Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in   dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I   wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it. 

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular customers at Lowe's, Home   Depot, Costco, or even Wal-Mart. This one caught me totally by surprise. 

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 nice looking, college-age girls will come over to your car or truck as   you are packing your purchases into your vehicle. They both start wiping   your windshield with a rag and Windex, with   their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. (It's impossible not to look.) When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' but   instead ask for a ride to McDonald's.

You agree and they climb into the vehicle. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other   one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen May 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on   the 15th, again on the 17th, 20th, 24th, and the 29th. Also June 1st, 4th,   8th, twice on the 16th &17th, and very likely again this upcoming weekend. 

So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of   us older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant. 

Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found even cheaper ones for   $.99 at the Dollar Store and bought them out in three of their stores. Also,   you never get to eat at McDonald's. I've already lost 11 pounds just running   back and forth from Lowe's, to Home Depot, to Wal-Mart.

So please, send this on to all the older men that you know and warn them to   be on the lookout for this scam. (The best times are just before lunch and   around 4:30 in the afternoon.)

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)
