BEWARE: Costco scam

A word of warning to those who shop regularly at Costco. I’ve fallen victim to a pretty clever scam that has apparently affected others. It’s happened to me, and it can happen to you too.

Here’s how the scam works:

While you’re leaving the store and walking through the parking lot, two attractive young ladies in skimpy T-shirts and hot pants come over to your vehicle as you are loading your goods. To break the ice, both gals begin wiping your windshield down with rags and Windex. When you thank them and offer them a few bucks for their time, they refuse the offer, and instead ask for a ride to another location several miles away. You oblige, thinking everything’s fine, and the three of you pile into the car. As you’re leaving the parking lot, the two ladies begin shedding what’s left of their clothing and crank up the stereo as a diversion. One of them then performs oral sex on you while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen last Tuesday, Wednesday, twice on Thursday, again on Friday, yesterday, and most likely again tomorrow.
