-please send this warning to everyone on your e-mail list!

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I
have even done it myself a couple of times,
but this one is important and for real....

If someone comes to your front door saying they are
checking for ticks due to the warming weather
and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around
with your arms up, do not do it!

My best friend told me this morning that it is just a scam! .... They only want to see you naked!

I wish I'd gotten this information yesterday. I feel
so stupid!!!!!!!!

LOL Horton! Oh well, don't be too hard on yourself. You're just a very trusting person. :)
Thanks for the warning!

RE: Urgent Warning.

Eeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!! Thanks for the heads up Horton. We'll just let the crabs answer the door and let them give the scammers The Claw at the request.

And they're just crabby enough to do it too! :-)

RE: Urgent Warning.

HA! I don't think the tick inspector would want to witness me doing a tick dance, that is NOT a pretty picture!

LOL!!! Yeah, I'd get the ol' "Ooops, wrong address, sorry!" excuse.

"Wait!!! Come back! I think I feel a tick in me draws, look!" Hmmm, party pooper.


RE: Urgent Warning.

Was it my badge or my spiffy uniform that convinced you, Horton? I thought your dance was quite impressive.

Awww Cmdr. Twinkletoes Mogali.

I'd love to scurry across the floor dancin' tick to tick but I have never been known as a dancer. Two left feet and one of them with chronic stress fractures kinda squashes that dream.

Ticks are so disgooseting!
