ALL CAR OWNERS AND CAR DRIVERS, PLEASE READ





Be aware of a new car-jacking scheme. You walk across the car park,

unlock your car and get inside, lock the doors, start the engine and

select reverse. You look into the rear-view mirror to back out of you

parking space and notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the

rear window.

So, you shift back into park or neutral, unlock the doors and get out

to remove the paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view.





When you reach the back of your car the car-jackers appear out of

nowhere, jump into your car and take off. Your engine was running and

you would have left your handbag or briefcase in the car.



APART FROM NICKING ANYTHING OF VALUE, THEY MIGHT FIND YOUR ADDRESS AND

THEY ALREADY HAVE YOUR KEYS!



Remember, if you see your rear view blocked like this just drive away

and remove the paper later ! It is stuck to your window!

THIS SCAM IS HAPPENING IN LONDON RIGHT NOW AND WILL SURELY SPREAD TO

OTHER AREAS



Be thankful that you read this post and forward it to friends and

family especially to women! JUST BE AWARE AND TAKE CARE. IT WILL SOON

ARRIVE IN YOUR AREA.

Thanks for the warning.

I hardly use the rear window anyway. No rear view mirroir (well not attached anyway!) and I'm used to reversing using side mirroirs after driving vans so often.
