Home Depot scam

Time to start investing in those really cheap nylon and velcro wallets.

Seriously, this same thing happened to me except instead of stealing my wallet, they left me a tip.

Seriously, they really only just gave me a hug.

Seriously, I'm married. !+) :-B

You can take another swing at it by going to return that stuff. Plus, you'll have extra money from the return, so you may pose yourself as a juicier target. Many 3 girls will jump you instead of the normal 2.

I've heard about doing that. I'll carry a money clip along with my wallet at times, but I've never tried the decoy wallet. Do you keep at least some things in that wallet to make it believable?

I usually keep some monopoly money and a few spent Visa gift cards in the decoy.

You should carry a decoy of your decoy wallet and fill it with newspaper or something. You don't want to be short the next time you play Monopoly if you get jacked.

Actually, if some guy sticks a gun in my face and asks for my wallet, I'm giving him my wallet. If you give him a fake wallet full of Monopoly money, he's likely to get pissed off and shoot you.
