I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, but this one is real, and it's important. So please send this warning to everyone on your e-mail list:

If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey on deer ticks and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!

IT IS A SCAM; they only want to see you naked.

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

Especially since we don't get deer ticks in Australia, right?

My dad and mom went walking through the woods when they were dating or engaged. Apparently my mom thought she had a tick on her so she wanted my dad to check it out. Well while they're in the bedroom doing this my dad's grandmother comes to the door and knocks on it because they were at her house. They have this exchange.

Grand: What are you doing?

Dad: Checking for ticks...

Grand: Well I've heard it called a lot of things in my day *shakes head and walks off*.

I'd heard about this, and deciding to beat the scammers at their own game, I started meeting everyone at the door naked and dancing around with my arms in the air.
