Just A Thought Coming Up To Xmas.......

I got this as one of the many hundreds of cr*p emails we all get all the time and almost deleted it out of hand, then I had a think....

It may or may not be a current 'thing' or a hoax or whatever (Scarface???), BUT could so easily be true ...... SO ....... its a timely reminder to be careful .....

====================================================

-----ALL CAR OWNERS AND CAR DRIVERS, PLEASE READ

Be aware of a new car-jacking scheme. You walk across the car park, unlock your car and get inside, lock the doors, start the engine and select reverse. You look into the rear-view mirror to back out of you parking space and notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window.

So, you shift back into park or neutral, unlock the doors and get out to remove the paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view.

When you reach the back of your car the car-jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off. Your engine was running and you would have left your handbag or briefcase in the car.

APART FROM NICKING ANYTHING OF VALUE, THEY MIGHT FIND YOUR ADDRESS AND THEY ALREADY HAVE YOUR KEYS!

Remember, if you see your rear view blocked like this just drive away and remove the paper later ! It is stuck to your window!

THIS SCAM IS HAPPENING IN LONDON RIGHT NOW AND WILL SURELY SPREAD TO

OTHER AREAS

Be thankful that you read this email and forward it to friends and family especially to women!

JUST BE AWARE AND TAKE CARE. IT WILL SOON ARRIVE IN YOUR AREA.

====================================================

This was also posted a few weeks ago ....................

It's not so much of a "hoax, or anything else" I'd say it's more common sense ........ it's just another way, that your car could potentially get stolen!
