    Default IMPORTANT-Please tell all your friends!

    IMPORTANT - I just had this through as a forward.
    This was originally from the Buckinghamshire Area.

    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 (NOT A JOKE)'

    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 rearview 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.

    Hi

    As ever these semi-plausible stories it is a fake.

    http://www.snopes.com/crime/warnings/carjack.asp

    Most carparks have CCTV and anyone hanging around would be spotted if they hung around,
    and most motorists simply jump in and just reverse without looking in any mirrors or over their
    shoulders anyway!!

    It may well be fake, but it doesn't mean you shouldn't be careful.... Imagine one day you do spot something on your rear window, would you get out thinking "oh it was only a fake story"?


    Locally to me the preferred method of carjacking is to put road cones down or block the road late at night 2am onwards, then when you get out to move the blockage, a gang of suntanned young men jump out of the bushes and beat you senseless before stealing your car.

    Reported in the local papers btw

    Shouldn't be an issue to most competent drivers who would reverse into their parking space. Most car park accidents are caused when people reverse...

    As already said, however, hoax or no hoax, worth bearing in mind to keep your car secure at all times.

    You wouldn't leave thousands of pounds lying about unguarded would you?

    I used to think exactly the same until I moved into my own place and my shopping quantities increased drastically.... Now I park nose first at the super market and reverse park everywhere else.
