Scam Alert

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I have even done it myself a couple times unintentionally… but this one is real, and it’s important. So please send this warning to everyone on your e- mail list.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up

DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!!

They only want to see you in your birthday suit.

I wish I’d gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid.

    Haha! No ticks here in our neck of the woods, so I would have to be pretty dumb to fall for this or hot. It's really hot…..

    • July 21, 2015 at 8:42 am

      It's hot here too, but I still wouldn't fall for this. πŸ™‚

    My pet rock would do it. Seymour doesn't care.

    • July 21, 2015 at 12:46 pm

      I know Seymour would do this. Remember he lived with us for a few months. πŸ™‚

  19. July 21, 2015 at 1:02 pm

    • July 21, 2015 at 3:56 pm

    Sadly, checking for ticks a big reality for us. Megan had Lyme Disease, so you might actually catch her doing this after playing outside near high grass. Though I would NOT do it for ANYONE! Lol.

    • July 22, 2015 at 9:50 am

      I know it is. It's not a problem where I live. It's a problem in many places. πŸ™‚

  26. July 23, 2015 at 11:58 am

    Hmmm, maybe if Daniel Craig came to the door πŸ˜‰

    • July 23, 2015 at 12:46 pm

      I get that. It does depend on who's doing the asking. πŸ™‚
