    Bit of a Heads Up.......

    Not sure if you know about this one..

    POLICE WARNING, PLEASE CIRCULATE
    Watch out for this nasty scam………

    Warning..!!!!

    Just last weekend on Friday night we parked in a public car park. 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 petrol. 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


    Heads up everyone! Please, keep this circulating.. You walk across the car park, unlock your car and get inside. You start the engine put it into reverse.
    When you look into the rear view mirror to back out of your space, you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you stop 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 run you over 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, lock your doors and 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 into the wrong hands.

    Please tell all your friends

    Hoax. I first read this about 10 years ago!
    But still food for thought.
