Safety for women. Please Read

When getting into your car , always check your surroundings. It pays to be safety conscious.


A woman stopped at a pay-at-the-pump gas station

to get gas. Once she filled her gas tank and after paying at the pump

and starting to leave, the voice of the attendant inside came over the

speaker. He told her that something happened with her card and that she

needed to come inside to pay. The lady was confused because the transaction

showed complete and approved. She relayed that to him and was getting ready to

leave but the attendant, once again, urged her to come in to pay or there'd

be trouble. She proceeded to go inside and started arguing with the

attendant about his threat. He told her to calm down and listen carefully:

He said that while she was pumping gas, a guy slipped into the back seat

of her car on the other side and the attendant had already called the

police. She became frightened and looked out in time to see her car door open and

the guy slip out. The report is that the new gang initiation thing is to

bring back a woman and/or her car.. One way they are doing this is crawling

under women's cars while they're pumping gas or at grocery stores in the

nighttime The other way is slipping into unattended cars and kidnapping the

women .

Please! pass this on to other women, young and old alike. Be extra

careful going to and from your car at night. If at all possible, don't go

alone! This is real!!

The message:

1. ALWAYS lock your car doors, even if you're gone for just a second!

2. Check underneath your car when approaching it for reentry, and check in the back before getting in.

3. Always be aware of your surroundings and of other individuals in your general vicinity, particularly at night !

Send this to everyone so your friends can take

Thanks for sharing this with your VJ family.

I hate gas stations and I'm always extra careful. I never buy gas at night and only unlock the driver side door when I'm getting out during the day. I also don't leave the keys in the ignition when I'm pumping gas just in case. My baby is usually in the car, so I'm always trying to be cautious cause it scares me the things people will do nowadays.
