Home Depot scam

Postby anderbudd » Wed Jan 31, 2007 11:07 pm

I don't think anyone has posted this yet, and I think it is something of which we should all be very careful. If it's already posted, please delete. I got this very serious warning in my email a few days ago for the first time, and thought you should all be aware.

Home Depot Scam
A "heads up" for you and any friends you have 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.

Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking 18 or 19-year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping in 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 back seat. On the way, they start having sex with each other. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and performs oral sex on you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen April 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, three times just yesterday, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

Again - please beware

This is spam email with different variations. I've gotten almost exactly the same thing, except it was Walmart not Home Depot.

So is this real or not? It didn't happen to me and now I have a bunch of stuff from Home Depot that I don't have any use for. O:-) :-b

I bet he didn't carry as much cash after that first day. :-B O:-)
