Windshield Washing Scam

Picture credit:


Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc.

This is the first warning I have seen for men. I want to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it.

A 'heads up' for men who are regular customers at Giant, Tesco, Jusco, or even Mydin.

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 nice looking, college-age girls will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your purchases into your vehicle. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. (It's impossible not to look). When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' but instead ask for a ride to McDonald's.

You agree and they climb into the vehicle. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen March 4th , 9th , 10th , twice on the 15th , again on the 17th , 20th , 24th , and the 29th . Also April 1st, 2nd and 3rd, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of us older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant.

Giant has wallets on sale for RM2.95 each. I found even cheaper ones for RM0.95 at the Mydin and bought them out in three of their stores. Also, you never get to eat at McDonald's. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth from Tesco, to Giant, to Jusco.

So please, send this on to all the male baby-boomers that you know and warn them to be on the lookout for this scam. (The best times are just before lunch and around 4:30 in the afternoon.)

The above was forwarded to the Zestzfulness Team by Khoo Soo Bee of Teluk Intan. Soo Bee, born in 1921, still drives (which makes it difficult for him to deny his involvement in the above) and surfs (this ‘banana’ was schooled at the local ACS but recently picked up Mandarin from the net).
