    A NEW WAY TO CAR JACK (NOT A JOKE)

    You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car, and get inside, then you start the engine and shift into REVERSE and you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space and 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 you 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 car-jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off!

    Your engine was running and 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….

    BE AWARE OF THIS SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED.

    Just dive away and remove the paper that is stuck to your window later. and be thankful that you read this email.

    I hope you will forward this to friends and family…especially to women! A purse contains all your identification, and you certainly do NOT want someone getting your home address. They already HAVE your keys!

    Doing even a cursory walkaround would thwart this. Or driving away paper intact to be removed elsewhere.

    As mentioned earlier, this is an urban legend that has been running around the Internet for years.
