Warning when you shop at Co-op Bau + Hobby

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Coop Bau+Hobby customers. This one caught me by surprise.
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 seriously good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts.
It is impossible not to look.
When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead ask you for a ride to McDonalds.
You agree and they get into the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.
I had my wallet stolen January 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th & 29th. Also February 1st & 4th, Twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th & 30th, three times last Monday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.
So tell your friends to be careful.
P.S. Migros has wallets on sale for 2.99 each. I found cheaper ones for $1.99 at Coop and bought them out. Also, you never will get to eat at McDonalds. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth to Bau+Hobby.


warning also--this is probably a repost, but it's a mondayish tuesday!

The authorities are certain to clamp down on this scam soon....it encourages people to drive their cars instead of using public transport.

I thought CO-op Bau und Hobby was a DIY shop!

You still need an erection permit.

The bus has plenty of poles to dance around.

Re: Warning when you shop at Co-op Bau + Hobby

We need some photographic evidence.

You know you can get cheap cameras as well from interdiscount.
In fact I just happened to buy a couple of them today.
I would not mind loaning you one if you promise to use it.

that scam would never work on me. I am impervious to the powers of breasts. Hence why I have never lost a wallet.

I'm safe too. Even if it were a couple of dudes, I don't think I'd fancy seeing their moobs falling out of their skimpy tops

How long does it take them to learn, seeing there's not much worth taking in the OP's wallet seeing how often they've already taken it?

Good point! Photo evidence might deter these horribly-sexy criminals!

Yeah, so at the risk of being further victimized myself, the camera broke.

Re: Warning when you shop at Co-op Bau + Hobby

So I arranged a Mobility car.

Is it likely that they'll strike several times in, say, 3 hours?

I just need to know so that I can get my money's worth avoid the scheming bitches.

I think you might need a wingman some support.
There seems to be two of them.
