Home Depot warning

Home Depot warning

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 at
Home Depot.

Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be very traumatic for me.

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 bags 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 Jan 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th,
24th & 29th. Also Feb 1st, 4th, twice on the 5th (even on my birthday what
a shame) the 8th, 10th and three
times just yesterday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

Please tell your friends to be careful.

P.S. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99.

DO NOT report this to the police! This situation requires extensive further investigation.
I'm sure other forum members, especially those who have been married awhile,
share my strong urge to go undercover to discover the true nature of this scam...

Don't hedge us single guys out! We want to do our part! Besides, I have a good excuse to be at Home Depot everyday since I am a contractor. I am the perfect undercover agent for this problem.

I can only assume this is a joke...unless you really are cool with having your wallet stolen so many times.
