Car Jacking Scheme

With the holiday season in full force, I thought I would post this info that a co-worker sent to my whole dept. It seems to make sense. Just looking out for all my fellow Mazda3 owners ( especially the ladies )


New car jacking scheme:

You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get
inside. Then you lock all your doors, start the engine and shift into reverse, and 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 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
car-jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off!

Your engine was running (ladies would have their 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.

Just drive away and remove the paper later and be thankful
you read this e-mail. I hope you will forward this to friends and family,
especially women! A purse contains all identification and you
certainly do not want someone getting your home address, they already HAVE your
keys!

how do you not see the paper before you get into the car? most people walk around the back of their car before getting into it. Only thing I haven't noticed on my car before was a parking ticket for backing into a parking spot. they tucked it under my wiper really low so I didn't see it till I was on the highway. Then I was praying it wouldn't fly off.

I walk around the back every morning. I am always worried about driving off with a flat tire and I check for door dings.
But in a normal parking lot, typically you walk around the back of your car to get to your door.

Actually, I think the point she was making is that when you're in a parking space, face in, you're likely to walk by the rear of your car before you get in.

That's the first thing I thought, too. How would I NOT notice a piece of paper on my rear window? When I walk up to my car in a parking lot, MOST times I find myself walking up from the rear. It would be hard not to notice.

thats why you only do it if it is easier for them to walk from the front and don't have to walk from the back of the car 8^]
