Just last weekend on Friday night we parked in a public parking area. As
we drove away I noticed a sticker on the rear window of the car. When I took
it off after I got home, it was a receipt for gas. Luckily my friend had
told me not to stop as it could be someone waiting for me to get out of the
car. Then we received this email yesterday:
'**WARNING FROM POLICE*****BEWARE OF PAPER ON THE BACK WINDOW OF YOUR
VEHICLE-- NEW WAY TO DO CARJACKINGS (NOT A JOKE)'***
Heads up everyone! Please,keep this circulating... You walk across the
parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. You start the engine and shift
When you look into there rearview mirror to back out of your parking space,
you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So,
you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car to remove that
paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view. When you reach the
back of your car, that is when the carjackers appear out of nowhere, jump
your car and take off. They practically mow you down as they speed off in
your car. And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car. So now the
carjacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys. Your
home and your whole identity are now compromised!
**BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED.***
If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away.
Remove the paper later. And be thankful that you read this e-mail. I hope
you will. Forward this to friends and family, especially to women. A purse
contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents,
and you certainly do NOT want this to fall in to the wrong hands.
