    ohnoGot one of these excitable "WARNING" emails from a family member :"
    fwiw new carjacking M.O.: <table style="width: 100%;" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="3"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="padding: 0.75pt 0.75pt 0in; width: 100%;" width="100%"> Warning...!!!! Warning..!!!! Warning..!!!! ohno


    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 this to fall into the wrong hands.



    Please keep this going

    and tell all your friends

    Good info to pass along, especially with the holiday parking lot season approaching.

    Thanks for sharing.
