I hate it when people forward bogus warnings…but this one is real, and it’s important. So please send this warning to everyone you know:

If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey on 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. :fryingpan:


  1. Margery Scott says:

    Hey, scam or not, I’d be happy if SOMEBODY wanted to see me naked ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Joely says:

    I see a tick! I see a tick!

    This cracked me up!

  3. Kate says:

    Damn,:rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::bananadance: you’re funny.

  4. Toni Anderson says:

    Where is this happening???? ๐Ÿ˜†

  5. Steph T. says:


    (But did they compliment your hair?)

  6. Mary says:

    Oh, poo, I was hoping I’d get checked.
    It’s so hot here I want to take my clothes off.

  7. kacey says:

    hm…well since I rarely answer my front door except when I’m expecting a delivery…I think I’m safe :mrgreen: (I peek around the corner, and if I don’t know them, I don’t answer if I’m home alone. Thank goodness deliver men drive big trucks I can see!)

    I has been hot here though. The nakey thing doesn’t sound half bad… :wave:

  8. Estella Kissell says:

    I don’t think anyone would want to see me naked—–when you age everything goes south:rotfl:

  9. Caro says:

    Only if the person asking is cute… :wigglebrow:

  10. Michelle says:

    Hee hee. Be careful, though. They might really be trying to harvest your kidneys. :guitar: :rotfl:

  11. Gladys Paradowski says:

    But just think of the fun you would have missed!!!

    And, boy at the fun I would have missed if I hadn’t read The Honeymoon Man. I loved the story. Utterly wonderful hero, no bitchy female and a host of fun from first page to the last. Thanks!

  12. Emily says:


    Too funny!

  13. Carol says:

    :rotfl::rotfl: I needed a good laugh! Thank you!

  14. mary beth says:

    LOL Suzanne! ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Robyn says:

    Thanks for the warning, Suzanne.:hyper:

  16. Jill says:

    It’s a good thing I read your blog in the morning. I’m forewarned and ready to face the day! :yes::yes:

  17. Saundra M says:

    Thanks for the warning!! I am going to spend the day at my front door, drink in hand, reading a Suzanne McMinn book, and wait…. and wait….and wait….and wait. If I get lucky, I’ll be dancing by nightfall. :bananadance:

  18. Kelly says:

    LOL! Thanks for the warning! :bananadance:

  19. Nicole says:


    lol and to all who forward those darn warning emails, please READ SNOPES first. ARGH.

  20. Tori says:

    :rotfl: This is what you get for answering your front door! I’m like Kacey. If I don’t know them, forget it.

  21. Mary Stella says:

    Aww, Suzanne, you fell for the tick scam? The one that got me was the guy who arrived in one of those anti-contamination suits, complete with helmet, like they wore toward the end of E.T. He swore that I needed to be hosed down immediately because the mosquito sprayer had released the wrong batch of chemicals.

    :shocked: ๐Ÿ˜†

  22. Juanita Stender says:

    That was no scam for me – it was my nosey neighbor who has found out that I do my housework in the nude. I am not much to look at but he is pretty old and needs all the help he can get!LOL :lol:Thanks for the laugh – it is a great way to start the day.:yes:

  23. Crystal* says:

    Hmmmm. Checking for ticks you say?
    *making notes and checking phone book for firehouse listings* Mmmm. Hmmmm. And people fall for this? *wondering if Microsoft Office can make an official looking name badge* I see.
    Okay. Must go. Have firemen to check. heh

  24. Amy K. says:

    ROFL! Trust me, they really DON’T want to see me nakey.

  25. Danica says:

    Well, I guss it depends on whether or not the tick guy is hot… and if he’ll play the I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours game.

  26. Trace says:

    I’d ask them to demonstrate first *grin*

  27. Lynn Daniels says:

    Well, phooey. Why couldn’t I have read your warning three hours ago? :fryingpan: Not only did I look like a fool, but the way that survey taker ran away screaming, I think he might be scarred for life. :shocked:

  28. Suzanne says:

    Gladys, I’m so glad you enjoyed The Honeymoon Man!! Thank you!!

  29. ruby55 says:

    Huh! What’s this? I just opened my little parcel and in it is a book by Suzanne Dye. Do I know her? Oh! It’s THE HONEYMOON MAN. So it must have something to do with Suzanne McMinn! Yep, there’s the name inside. Whew! I thought some strange person was sending me a book.:grin:

    Thanks for the book, Suzanne. It arrived today.

    As for the other: I don’t think they’d like to see me in the ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ‘nothing’together. I’m not a looker like you.

  30. Alyssa says:

    LOL! I needed that laugh. Although it is getting so hot I almost wish someone would ask me to dance naked.

    I received The Honeymoon Man and I’m almost finished. I really like it! I’m planning to blog about it. Thanks so much for your generosity in sending it!


  31. Suzanne says:

    Hi, Sigrun! Yes, I wrote four books under the name Suzanne Dye some years back. I was writing romance for several different houses at the same time and there were some contractual issues.

    Alyssa, thanks!

  32. Teresa says:

    This was so freakin’ funny!! Gotta watch out for them ticks.:bananadance:
