If a man comes to your front door saying he is conducting a survey and asks you to take off your clothes, don't do it. It's a scam. He only wants to see you naked.

I wish I had got this warning yesterday. I feel so stupid and cheap now.

This has got to be a joke. People just can't be that STUPID, can they?

You're right, Regina -- just look what passes for humor in the Danville Express Express Forum!
