    Car Jacking

    FYI...


    THIS PERTAINS TO EVERYONE--MEN INCLUDED.

    Warning..!!!! Warning....!!!!

    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 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

    THIS APPLIES TO BOTH WOMEN AND MEN

    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 into Reverse..

    When you look into the 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 into 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 it to fall into the wrong hands.

    Thanks for posting that, Doc. This scheme isn't popular here yet so I'll give it a shot before everyone catches on. I'd like a Jag or BMW. I'm off to the mall to test this out now.

    Let me know how that works out for you, bud.

    I remember staying in this hotel in Dallas last year.

    There was a mall across the street so I asked the concierge how safe it was as I had read stories about it on Trip Advisor.

    He said the cops had cleaned it up somewhat, but there was a problem there around Christmas.

    Seems the thieves had a novel gig. They would hide under somebody's car and when the owner went to get in, they'd take a knife and slice the victim's Achilles tendon.

    Thought that was pretty original as you're certainly not expecting a low line attack.

    So if that sticker on the back window ploy doesn't work out, you might want to try Plan B above.

    You need to do this quickly so it can be reported to snopes. They are categorizing it as false right now...!

    Screw SNOPES!

    Snopes.com is a Scam

    Seems for the past while snopes.com: Urban Legends Reference Pages has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the 'tell all final word' on any comment, claim and email. But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind snopes.com. Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband and wife team - that's right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers. It's just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a hobby.

    David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the Website about 13 years ago - and they have no formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation? The reason for the questions - or skepticims - is a result of snopes.com claiming to have the bottom line facts to certain questions or issue when in fact they have been proven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the 'true' bottom of various issues....


    So let's see Snopes comment on that!

    They don't have time right now, they are too busy putting flyers on auto windows to upgrade their fleet...!
