    Send this warning to everyone you know, friends and enemies!

    If someone comes to your front door saying they are
    conducting a survey on deer ticks and asks you to take
    your clothes off and dance around, do not do it!

    IT IS A SCAM; they only want to see you naked!

    I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid now.

    :haha:

    It kinda reminds me of the scam that went around where women got a phone call from a company advertizing free mammograms. All they had to do was press their breasts up against a window and the company's satellite would precisely focus an x-ray on the window to get the mammogram. I guess hundreds of women fell for it.

    Years ago a notice was posted at a local hospital offering free pap smears and exams for employees. Lots ladies were processed thru the mobile exam truck in the back parking lot, but never got the results in the mail as promised. Turns out the exams were "unauthorized" and not part of the employee benefits (or at least, not a planned part!).
