  • Warning tomotorists

    Just had this email.

    This is happening now!

    Sad, especially if you are inclined to 'help' people...

    While driving on a rural end of the roadway on Thursday morning, I saw an infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over it. For whatever reason, I did not stop, even though I had all kinds of thoughts running through my head. But when I got to my destination, I called the Police and they were going to check it out. But, this is what the Police advised even before they went out there to check....

    "There are several things to be aware of ... gangs and thieves are now plotting different ways to get a person (mostly women) to stop their vehicle and get out of the car."

    "There is a gang initiation reported by the local Police where gangs are placing a car seat by the road...with a fake baby in it... waiting for a woman,of course,to stop and check on the abandoned baby"

    "Note that the location of this car seat is usually beside a wooded or grassy (field) area and the person -- woman -- will be dragged into the woods, beaten and raped, and usually left for dead. If it's a man, they're usually beaten and robbed and maybe left for dead, too.

    DO NOT STOP FOR ANY REASON!!!

    DIAL 9-9-9

    AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW, BUT DON'T EVEN SLOW DOWN.

    ALSO

    "IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSCREEN, DO NOT STOP TO CHECK THE CAR, DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPER AND DO NOT SPRAY ANY WATER BECAUSE EGGS MIXED WITH WATER BECOME MILKY AND BLOCK YOUR VISION UP TO 92.5%,

    YOU ARE THEN FORCED TO STOP BESIDE THE ROAD AND BECOME A VICTIM OF THESE CRIMINALS.

    THIS IS A NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY GANGS, SO PLEASE INFORM YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.

    THESE ARE DESPERATE TIMES AND THESE ARE UNSAVOURY INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL TAKE DESPERATE MEASURES TO GET WHAT THEY WANT."


    Please talk to your loved ones about this. This is a new tactic used.

    Please be safe.

    Get started NOW -- SEND THIS MESSAGE TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES TO BE CAREFUL AND AWARE OF EVERYTHING AROUND THEM SO AS NOT TO BECOME A VICTIM.

                We here at the east midlands airport area had a simular issue a few years back a plain octavia was made up with fake lighting to stop hire car drivers/air port leavers and rob them by impersonating the police undercover cars.

                this was real and i was working with customs at the time searching for terrorist threats etc i was given paperwork by the local police instructing me not to stop if any police car was to try to stop me and to continue my trip to the end and call the police myself.

                i myself never had an issue, but i did know a woman that was followed when leaving ema UPS after a night shift.

                so it goes to show there is sometimes a little truth and we should all be aware in this sad day and age!

                what has the world come to eh!
