    never let your guard down - May be a RAPIST TRICK
    Know what money you are carrying. You will see why as you read.

    Be sure every woman is aware of this M.O. Share it with your wife and
    daughters. Know what money you are carrying...

    This was the first I have heard of a scheme like this..... I wanted to
    pass it along. Be safe!

    Criminals are coming up with craftier, less threatening methods of
    attack, so we have to be extra cautious.

    Read on...
    I live in AlexandriaVA but I often work in Lafayette, LA< /SPAN> staying
    with friends when I'm there. As you know from America 's Most Wanted
    TV program, as well as the news media, there is a serial killer in the
    Lafayette area. I just want to let you know about an 'incident' that
    happened to me a few weeks ago, and could have been deadly.

    At first I didn't go to the police or anyone with it because I didn't
    realize how serious this encounter was. But since I work in a jail and
    I told a few people about it, it wasn't long before I was paraded into
    Internal Affairs to tell them my story.

    It was approximately 5:15 a.m. in Opelousas La. I had stayed with a
    friend there and was on my way to work.

    I stopped at the Exxon/Blimpie Pie station to get gas. I got $10
    gas and a Diet Coke. I took into the store two $5 bills and one $1
    bill (just enough to get my stuff). As I pulled away from the store, a
    ma n approached my truck from the back side of the store (an unlit
    area). He was an 'approachable-looking' man (clean cut, clean shaven,
    dressed well, etc).

    He walked up to my window and knocked.. Since I'm very paranoid and
    'always looking for the rapist or killer,' I didn't open the window.

    I just asked what he wanted. He raised a $5. bill to my window and
    said, 'You dropped this.' Since I knew I had gone into the store with
    a certain amount of money, I knew I didn't drop it.

    When I told him it wasn't mine, he began hitting the window and door,
    screaming at me to open my door, and insisting that I had dropped the
    money! At that point, I just drove away as fast as I could.

    After talking to the Internal Affairs Department and describing the
    man I saw, and the way he escalated from calm and polite to angry and
    volatile...it was determined that I could have possibly encountered
    the serial killer myself.

    Up to this point, it had been unclear as to how he had gained access
    to his victims, since there has been no evidence of forced entry into
    victim's homes, cars, etc. And the fact that he has been attacking in
    the daytime, when women are less likely to have their guard up, means
    he is pretty BOLD.

    So think about it...what gesture is nicer than returning money to
    someone that dropped it?????

    How many times would yo u have opened your window (or door) to get
    your money and say thank you... because if the person is kind enough
    to return something to you, then he can't really be a threat....can
    he????

    Please be cautious! This might not have been the serial killer...
    but anyone that gets that angry over someone not accepting money from
    them can't have honorable intentions. The most important thing to note
    is that his reaction was NOT WHAT I EXPECTED! A total surprise! But
    what might have happened if I had opened my door? I shudder to think!

    Forward this to everyone you know...maybe they can be as fortunate as I
    was!

    P.S. Ladies, really DO forward this to EVERYONE you know. Even if this
    man wasn't a serial killer, he looked nice, he seemed polite, he was
    apparently doing an act of kindness, but HE WAS NOT A NICE PERSON!!!

    Men, send it to all the women in your life.

    What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of
    your life for it. Make it a good one

    Yes, keep this warning alive. So many scams, so many ways to die.
