    Exclamation Hoax warning -- Be careful!

    I hate those hoax warnings, but this one is important!

    If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey and asks you to take your clothes off, do not do it!!! This is a scam! They only want to see you naked.

    I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid and cheap now...

    Like Stan, they had to re-survey her as well. You'd think after 14 times they would be more careful not to lose her answers!

    Strange, but once I complied with their request they became violently ill and ran screaming from my house. I think I heard them say they were taking my name off their list

    Talking Maybe...............

    They might have been here, yesterday. Someone knocked on the door, and when I opened it, they stared at me for a few seconds, then said "Sorry, wrong house" or something like that........

    They came by my firehouse and asked "The Bear" to strip. Quite zesty, last time I heard he put them into seizures.

    We have a guy like that on my group. The running gag is that he hasn't finished evolving yet!
