OT: Scam warning
I got an email today about a scam that I thought might be worth sharing in case it helps anyone out there. People have reported that they were approached in a parking lot by a small group (one or two women, two or three men) asking "what kind of perfume are you wearing" and offering to sell heavily discounted perfumes. They have sample cards they ask you to sniff. Supposedly the sample to sniff is ether which will make you pass out, and then you get robbed.
Incredibly horrible to imagine that this might be true, but I figured it can't hurt to post the info just in case. I don't think I would engage with people approaching me in a parking lot and my DH is allergic to perfume so I never wear any...
