Don't smell the perfume at ATMs -Sri Lanka
Don't smell the perfume at ATMs - real important - read and save yourself
U can never be too careful - husbands also be careful when taking money out of ATMs....
This may not be happening in your town, you might not take it seriously but I've passed it on, you now all know about it. For your personal safety.
Take this seriously, I (Sandamali) know someone who was approached last week after taking Rs 5000 out of an ATM by some guy who asked what perfume she was wearing. They asked her if she wanted to buy some Cheap imitation and to have a smell (she declined).
These guys hit Mount Lavinia 6 weeks ago and now they are doing it here in Colombo .
I received this email and thought you may want to advise your partners, daughters and friends this experience also happened to one of my daughters friends in a CIS recently......fortunately, she had heard about it before & didn't fall for it. I was approached yesterday afternoon around 3.30 pm at Wattala HSBC ATM 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 a very reasonable rate.
I probably would have agreed had I not received an email some weeks ago, 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, I pointed at them, and told her about how I was sent an email at work about someone walking up to you at the malls, in parking lots, and asking you to sniff perfume that they are selling at a cheap price.
THIS IS NOT PERFUME - IT IS ETHER! When you sniff it, you'll pass out and they'll take your wallet, your valuables, and heaven knows what else. If it were not for this email, I probably would have sniffed the "perfume", but thanks to the generosity of an emailing friend, I was spared whatever might have happened to me, and wanted to do the same for you.
