Got this note from a friend, and wanted to pass it along…
Home Depot Scam-
A “heads up” for those of you who may be regular Home Depot (or Lowes) customers. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping.
Simply going out to get home improvement supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you.
Here’s how the scam works: Two seriously good-looking 20-21 year-old girls approach you in the parking lot as you are packing your misc. purchases into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a cloth and Windex, with their skimpy t-shirts rubbing against the glass.
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 McDonalds. You agree and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start fooling around with each other. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and rubs against you, while the other one steals your wallet.
I had my wallet stolen on September 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th and 24th. Also October 1st, 3rd, twice on the 7th, three times just yesterday and very likely again this upcoming weekend. So be careful!
