Beware!!

#1
This is a copy of an email I received today, another example of how suspicious we need to be of strangers!

Very important! NOT A JOKE!! Women--PLEASE read





Hi everyone,



We personally know xxxx xxxxx in Cedar Rapids where this

happened.

Just a reminder to beware of anyone anymore.

This happened to someone at BIG LOTS in Cedar Rapids! Please be

careful!!



BE CAREFUL & ALERT!!!!!!



Women need to be alert! Read on to make you aware.



This is something that happened to us on the way back from

vacation last

spring. I didn't think much of it until now. The reason we were

a little

suspicious is we had been riding in a jeep all day with 100

degrees

temps and we stopped at a truck stop for something to drink.

When I was

leaving, a young girl followed me out and asked what kind of

cologne I

was wearing. Well, after 7 hours in the car sweating, I don't

think you

could tell I was or was not wearing any cologne. We just got in

the jeep

and said no thanks.



Then it was about 3 weeks ago, I was at a service station in

Birmingham

getting gas. It was about 9:30 pm. I was approached by 2 men and

2 women

in a car. The man that was driving asked me 'What kind of

perfume do you

wear? I was a bit confused and I asked him 'Why?' He said, 'We

are

selling some name brand perfumes, at cheap prices.'



I said I had no money. He then reached out of the car and handed

me

paper that was laminated, it had many perfumes on it. I looked

quickly at

it and gave it back. I said, I have no money. He said it is OK,

we take

check, cash,or credit cards.Then the people in the car began to

laugh. I

just got in my car and said no thanks.



Then I received this e-mail yesterday and it sent chills up my

spine.

Please read this. It is no joke. Here is the e-mail I was sent-



Dear Friends:



I know not all of you are women that I am sending this to, but

am hoping

you will share this with your wives, daughters, mothers,

sisters, etc.

Our world seems to be getting crazier by the day. Pipe bombs in

mailboxes and sickos in parking lots with perfume. Be careful. I

was

approached yesterday afternoon around 5:30 PM in the Wal-Mart

parking lot

by two males asking what kind of perfume I was wearing. Then

they asked

if I'd like to sample some fabulous scent they were willing to

sell me

at a very reasonable rate. I probably would have agreed had I

not

received an e-mail warning of a "Wanna smell this neat perfume?"

scam.

The men continued to stand between parked cars, I guess to wait

for

someone else to hit on. I stopped a lady going towards them,

pointing at

them and told her about how I was sent an e-mail at work about

someone

walking up to you at the malls or in parking lots and asking you

to

SNIFF PERFUME that they are selling at a cheap price.



THIS IS NOT PERFUME...IT IS ETHER!



When you sniff it, you'll pass out.They'll take your wallet,

your

valuables and heaven k nows what else. If it were not for this

e-mail, I

probably would have sniffed the 'perfume' but thanks to the

generosity

of an e-mailing friend, I was spared whatever might have

happened to me.

I wanted to do the same for you.



PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL YOUR WOMEN FRIENDS AND PLEASE BE

ALERT AND

BEWARE. IF YOU ARE A MAN AND RECEIVE THIS, PASS IT ON TO YOUR

WOMEN FRIENDS.



Ladies, this happened to me yesterday and I didn't smell the

perfume

either, thanks to this email. This is true. Believe me, I know.

I was

over by Big Lots in the parking lot at lunch time when I was

approached.

So either day or night, it does not matter. There were 3 guys

together

when I was approached. I called the police when I got back to my

desk.

Like the email says above, LET EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THIS - YOUR

FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS, whomever. It helped me. The first thing that

popped into my head was this e-mail

warning. Have a FABULOUS day!

Angel, dont mean to shoot you down about this one... but please check these out at www.snopes.com first. It would be tragic if these things were happening and I think that one has happened before.

There are just so many 'spoofs' meant to scare people that are already scared. Just to see how far they can get people to pass it around...
