    ALL CAR OWNERS AND CAR DRIVERS PLEASE READ
    Be aware of new car-jacking scheme.

    You walk across the car park, unlock your car and get
    inside. Then you lock all your doors, start the engine
    and shift or put into reverse. You look into the
    rear-view mirror to back out of your parking space and
    You notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the
    rear window.

    So, you shift the gear stick back into park or
    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 car-jackers appear out of
    nowhere, jump into your car and take off!! Your engine
    was running, you would have left your purse in the car
    and they practically mow you down as they speed off in
    your car.

    BE AWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED IN
    GLASGOW AND MANCHESTER
    AND IS MAKING ITS WAY ACROSS THE COUNTRY!!!!!!!!

    Just drive away and remove the paper later! It is
    stuck to your Window 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
    identification, and you certainly do NOT want someone
    getting your home address. They
    already HAVE your keys!!!

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