Subject: Fw: Perfume scam in Little Rock!

Something to watch out for.....

I wouldn't think much about this except for the fact that it might have been tried on me last weekend.

My husband and I were at the Shell station in Morgan and was approached by a young girl with a back pack on her back. She asked if we would be interested in buying some cheap perfume. Since it was a Saturday night and by liquor stores, we were leery of her approaching us in the first place. We told her that we were not interested and she persisted that we at least smell it.

We again told her that we weren't interested and she walked away. It was really odd that she would be out soliciting at a gas station selling perfume. So, I don't know if it was the same deal, but I definitely wouldn't smell anything someone was selling!

I got this today at work...

There have been multiple locations in Little Rock where 2 people will ask you to smell perfume they are selling cheap. Instead of it being perfume, it's "ETHER"! So they knock you out & take all they can get. BEWARE! BE CAREFUL!! Continue reading if you want examples of places this has happened in

We were in the parking lot of the Dixie Cafe in West Little Rock. Fortunately, my brother came out of the restaurant just as the guy was asking us if we wanting to sample some perfume....he told the guy we were not interested and did not have time!!! BE CAREFUL!

Subject: Perfume Scam
PLEASE BE AWARE !!!!
FYI- LADIES BE CAREFUL. GENTLEMEN PASS THIS ALONG TO YOU WIVES AND SISTERS AND FRIENDS.

I just wanted to pass along that I was approached yesterday afternoon at around 3:30 p.m. in the Walmart parking lot at Forest Drive by 2 males asking what kind of perfume I was wearing. I didn't stop to answer them and kept walking toward the store. At the same time I remembered this email. The men continued to stand between parked cars-I guess to wait on someone else to hit on. I stopped a lady going toward them, pointed at them, and told her what they might ask and NOT to let them get near her. hen that happened, the men and a lady (I don't know where she came from!) started walking the other way toward their car parked in far corner of the parking lot.

I WAS SENT AN E-MAIL AT WORK ABOUT SOMEONE WALKING UP TO YOU AT A MALL OR IN A PARKING LOT AND ASKING YOU TO SNIFF PERFUME THEY ARE SELLING AT A CHEAP PRICE. THIS ISN'T REALLY PERFUME!!!! IT IS CALLED "ETHER", AND YOU WILL PASS OUT AND, THEY TAKE YOUR WALLET AND ALL YOUR VALUABLES. THIS IS NOT A PRANK E-MAIL, THIS IS TRUE BECAUSE I WAS STOPPED IN GOVERNORS SQUARE PARKING LOT TODAY. A MAROON CAR PULLED UP TO ME WITH TWO FEMALES. THE FEMALE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE ROLLED DOWN THE WINDOW AND ASKED ME IF I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN "SNIFFING" SOME PERFUME THEY WERE SELLING. I REMEMBERED THE E-MAIL I JUST RECEIVED YESTERDAY, AND SAID NO. SHE ASKED ME A SECOND TIME, I KEPT ON WALKING SAID NO AGAIN AND THEY PULLED OFF.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE E-MAIL, I VERY WELL MAY HAVE DONE IT. PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND TELL THEM TO BEWARE. THIS IS TRUE!! IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE E-MAIL I GOT YESTERDAY, I COULD VERY WELL MAY HAVE BEEN A VICTIM. REMEMBER TO PASS THIS ON!!!!!

The above are true stories and are currently being investigated by the Little Rock Police Department and surrounding Law Enforcement Agencies.
So be Careful.
