Guys beware!!

I've hesitated to send this but in the end I felt it is my responsibility to do so. Sadly I was the victim of a scam. Please read my story and be on the look out because no one is immune. Fore warned is fore armed!

B&Q Parking Lot Scam:

For you guys who may be regular B&Q customers or know someone who is: 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 seriously hot looking 25ish year-old women come over to your car as you are loading your items into the boot.

They both start washing your windshield with a rag and Windex, 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 Thanks' and instead ask you for a ride to another shopping center. 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 May 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th & 29th. Also June 1st, 5th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 24th, 25th, three times last Saturday and very likely again this weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful!

P.S. Tesco has wallets on sale for £2.99.

Wouldn't you have gotten the idea by the third time they stole your wallet?

Yesh no offence but I would never let anyone I dont know ride in my car. Let alone take them anywhere.

Is it the same scam every time? How have you managed to fall for it what 15 times?

They must be really stupid too. Not noticing they are scamming the same guy with the empty wallet again and again and again.

Maybe they like you and are just afraid to say? I suggest you ask them both out for a drink.
