Perfume / Ether warning
« on: July 17, 2009, 05:16:23 PM »
This may not be appropriate in a Kalkan forum, but it is important.  Just in from a friend in London.  If someone asks you to smell perfume, DON'T !
---------------------------------------
"MAKE SURE YOUR DAUGHTERS KNOW - AND EVERYONE ELSE This is something
that happened to us on the way back from holiday last week. At first I
didn't think much of it until now. The reason we were a little
suspicious is we had been riding in a jeep all day with 100 degree
temps and we stopped at a truck stop for something to drink.
When I was leaving, a young girl followed me out and asked what kind
of cologne I was wearing.  Well, after 7 hours in the car sweating, I
don't think you could tell if I was or was not wearing any cologne. We
just got in the jeep and said no thanks. Then it was about 3 weeks ago,
I was at a service station in Birmingham getting fuel. It was about 9:
30 PM. I was approached by 2 men and 2 women in a car. The man that was
driving asked me 'What kind of perfume do you wear?' I was a bit
confused and I asked him 'Why?' He said, 'We are selling some name
brand perfumes at cheap prices.' I told him I had no money. He then
reached out of the car and handed me paper that was laminated; it had
many perfumes on it. I looked quickly at it and gave it back. I said
again that I had no money. He said, 'That's OK, we take check, cash, or
credit cards.' Then the people in the car bega n to laugh. I just got
in my car and said no thanks. Then I received this e-mail yesterday and
it sent chills up my spine. Please read this; it is no joke. Here is
the e-mail I was sent:
_____________________________________________________
Dear Friends:
I know not all of you are women that I am sending this to, but am
hoping you will share this with your wives, daughters, mothers,
sisters, etc. Our world seems to be getting crazier by the day. Pipe
bombs in mail boxes and sickos in parking lots with perfume. Be
careful. I was approached yesterday afternoon around 5:30 PM in the
ASDA carpark by two males asking what kind of perfume I was wearing.
Then they asked if I'd like to sample some fabulous scent they were
willing to sell me at very reasonable rate. I probably would have
agreed had I not received an e-mail warning of a 'Wanna smell this neat
perfume?' scam. The men continued to stand between parked cars, I guess
to wait for someone else to hit on. I stopped a lady going towards
them, pointing at them, and told her about how I was sent an e-mail at
work about someone walking up to you at the malls or in carparks and
asking you to SNIFF PERFUME that they are selling at a cheap price or
at least compare to which one you like best. THIS IS NOT PERFUME...IT
IS ETHER!  When you sniff it, you'll pass out. They'll take your
wallet, your valuables and heaven knows what else. If it were not for
this e-mail, I probably would have sniffed the 'perfume', but thanks to
the generosity of an e-mailing friend, I was spared whatever might have
happened to me. I wanted to do the same for you.
____________________________________________________
PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL YOUR WOMEN FRIENDS, AND PLEASE BE ALERT
AND BE AWARE. IF YOU ARE A MAN AND RECEIVE THIS, PASS IT ON TO YOUR
WOMEN FRIENDS.
 
Ladies, this happened to me yesterday and I didn't smell the perfume
either, thanks to this email. This is true. Believe me, I know. I was
over by Big Lots in the carpark at lunch time when I was approached. So
either day or night, it does not matter. There were 3 guys together
when I was approached. I called the police. Like the email says above,
LET EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THIS - YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS,
whomever. It helped me. The first thing that popped into my head was
this e-mail warning.

This is circulating via mobile phones in the uk. It might be an "urban myth"
