This e-mail was sent to me today - Please read it.
 
THIS DID ORIGINATE FROM A POLICE SOURCE 
  
 

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 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
WEST MIDLANDS POLICE

BEWARE OF PAPER ON THE BACK WINDOW OF YOUR VEHICLE--NEW WAY TO DO CAR JACKINGS (NOT A JOKE)'

.. You walk across the car parking , 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 neutral,  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 d o cuments, and you
certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.

Please pass this on.

I hope that doesn't happen to any black belts - Wouldn't want them getting into trouble lol! On a serious note thought thank-you Sir. The crooked are always looking for new ways to scam ppl! Personal safety very important! I always sit facing the entrance if I go for a meal or a drink! Does anyone else do this sort of thing?

This is just a variation of the old well-known garbage in front of the garage trick.
