Thieves in German supermarket car parks

http://www.blick.ch/news/ausland/nac...id3786777.html

Be careful, always lock the car: a number of people have been robbed in German supermarket car parks. The shopping is loaded into the car, and while the trolley is being returned, the thieves quickly steal any wallets and handbags visible in the car.

Re: Thieves in German supermarket car parks

Please BE WARNED! Over the last month I have become a victim of a clever 'Eastern European' scam whilst out shopping.
Here's how the scam works:
Two very good-looking 20-21 year-old girls of eastern European origin come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the boot. They both start cleaning your windscreen, their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T- shirts. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they'll say 'No' and instead they ask you for a lift to another supermarket. You agree and they both get in the back seat.
On the way there, they start undressing, until both are completely naked. Then, when you pull over to remonstrate, one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over your lap, kissing you, touching you intimately and thrusting herself against you, while the other one steals your wallet!
I had my wallet stolen on September 4th, 9th,10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th and 29th. Also on October 1st, 4th, 6th, 9th and 10th and twice yesterday.So please warn all the older men you know to be on the lookout for this scam.
The best times seem to be just before lunch and about 4:30 in the afternoon.

Re: Thieves in German supermarket car parks

You got robbed by the same scam that many times! Good grief, I would have thought you'd learnt by the second or third time to drive them straight to the nearest police station. Or perhaps you were enjoying yourself too much to care.

I've heard about this scam, and it is shocking. Perhaps this will help in future.

A Horse called Kevin walks into a bar and orders an ostrich and cat. The barman says everyone is blond. The horse says if that won't get rid of the taste nothing will.

An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scot walk into a bar. The barman says "What is this, some kind of joke?"

A farmer had five female pigs. Times were hard, so he decided to take them to the county fair and sell them.

At the fair, he met another Farmer who owned five male pigs. After talking a bit, they decided to mate the pigs and split everything 50/50. The farmers lived sixty miles apart. So they agreed to drive thirty miles each to a field in which the pigs could mate.

The first morning, the farmer with the female pigs got up at 5 A.M., loaded the pigs into the family station wagon, which was the only vehicle he had, and drove the thirty miles. While the pigs were mating, he asked the other farmer, "How will I know if they are pregnant?" The other farmer replied, "If they're lying in the grass in the morning, they're pregnant. If they're in the mud, they're not."

The next morning the pigs were rolling in the mud. So he hosed them off, loaded them into the Station wagon again and proceeded to try again. This continued each morning for more than a week and the farmers were about worn out.

The following morning the farmer with the female pigs was too tired to get out of bed. He said to his wife, "Honey, please go look outside and tell me whether the pigs are in the mud or in the grass."

"Neither," replied his wife, "they're all in the station wagon and one of them is honking the horn like crazy."

It's happening all over Switzerland. My local cinema was robbed of a thousand francs last night.

The thieves got away with a large pepsi, family bag of popcorn and a pack of maltesers.
