    I received the following by e-mail I cannot vouch for it but if true its certainly nasty:

    A woman visited the toilet in John Lewis @ Blue water and hung her handbag on the back of the toilet door. As she carried on about her business, a hand suddenly appeared over the top of the stall and grabbed her bag clean off the hook.

    She immediately reported the incident to the head of security, who in turn informed the manager of the store. A couple of days later she had a call from the head of security to say her bag had been found without her purse. So she arranged a convenient time to go and meet the manager to collect her things.

    On arriving at the John Lewis store at the agreed time, the manager was not expecting her and neither was the head of security. No one f rom the store had actually called her as the bag had still not been found.

    When the lady got home, her house had been burgled with no sign of forced entry. The Police believe the robbers had used her Driving Licence for the address and her keys to let themselves in.

    This is real - it isn't just a scaremongering story. Many will be so shocked at how complex bag snatching crime
    has become.

    Please be extra vigilant ladies AND gents (with your man bags) there are a lot of desperate criminals out there!
