    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...
