Real or not, this new scam cooked up by kidnappers seems logical and dangerous and caution should be taken!
You know how people accost you in the parking lots of WalMarts, truck stops or shopping malls with spices, burritos and other wares they sell? Now, kidnappers are using a Perfume Scam to knock out people with Ether and grab them outside stores.
In an email sent to me just this morning it described how the plot to kidnap people works and I believe everyone should know that the threat and possibility exists in real life.
You’re approached by a kid, a man or a woman who says they like your perfume or cologne. Then they want you to “smell” their samples of the colognes they are “selling.” The hand you a card or paper with a supposed scent on it and ask you to sniff it. If you choose to do so, you’re really sniffing Ether which will knock you out allowing the people to grab you.
I can’t stand people trying to catch me in the parking lot to sell me their worthless crap anyway let alone try to get me to “sniff” something. And to think – pedophiles, murderers, pimps and rapists are now latching on to a new scam.
How easy would it be to lure a child into taking a “harmless sniff” of a scent and then steal them? These forceful thugs are going to stake out any place they can get their hands on a helpless victim.
It’s unbelievable the absolute ludicrous behavior we live with in today’s world. We’re stalked, stabbed and ridiculed by all kinds of criminals getting away with daily attacks on society. I say getting away with because I’ve turned in criminals who have been caught in the act and evidence with photos has been given to the authorities – documented proof – and still these people roam the streets.
Once word gets out about this new kidnapping scam, every criminal who intends bodily harm will be using it to gain a victim.
What about the bars and clubs where people are in close proximity to each other? Ether will be their choice for knocking people out just to kill or rape them.
My father used to always say (and probably still does) you won’t get in trouble if you’re not anywhere you can get in trouble. True to a point, but shopping at WalMart? Going on a trip?
We can’t let our guard down for a second when we leave our homes with all these lunatics on the loose. There are no longer any safe places no matter where you are, no matter where you’re going. Now we’re jeopardizing our entire life just for a gallon of milk. Wow!
Don’t get me wrong – I’m still shopping and still going where I want – I’m just going to be doing it with a lot more caution than I did before.
Look out Mary Kay Ladies! You’ll not be spraying me with any scents from this point on!If you like this post, leave a comment and please subscribe to my feed – all comments are appreciated!
