Does anyone actually believe this sh!t?!?

Recieved this email today and was wondering wether

A. Do poeple believe all this bollox?
B. Do these things actually happen?

An important message from the Police -
please pass this along to all the women you know.....

This actually happened a few weeks ago on the M3 FLEET SERVICES!!!

It was early evening and a young girl stopped to get petrol.
She filled her tank and walked into the store to pay for her
petrol. The cashier told her 'Don't pay for your petrol yet.....walk
around the store for a while and act as if you're picking up some other things to buy. A man just got into the back of your car. I've called the police and they're on their way'. When the police arrived, they found the man in the back seat of the girl's car and asked him what he was doing. He replied, he was joining a gang and the initiation to join is to kidnap a woman and bring her back to the gang to be raped by every member of the gang. If the woman was still alive by the time they finish with her then they let her go.
According to the police that night, there is a new gang forming
here originating from London. The scary part of this is because the guy didn't have a weapon on him. The police could only charge him with trespassing.... He's back on the street and free to try again.

Please be aware of what's going on around you and for your family and friends. LADIES you or one of your family and friends could be the next victim.

Please forward this on to everyone you know. Please do not
discard this message it is very important that everyone knows what is happening.

Please be careful when leaving your vehicle and make sure it is ALWAYS Locked to prevent this from happening to you.



first bit is mainly for women, but boys please read it and
send it on to any women you care about. The second bit is a warning to all of us!

Some sound advice for us all as we all sometimes forget to take our common sense with us when we go out. This is from Northants Police.. Women.... In light of the recent kidnapping and now murder ofLeigh Mathews, I think it is important to read the following info for your own safety.
Things women should know to stay safe: Please Take the time to
read these pointers. There may just be one or two you hadn't thought of.

After reading this, forward it to someone you care about. It never
hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
2. If a robber asks for your handbag, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM.
Toss it away from you.... he is probably more interested in your handbag than you and he will go for the handbag. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the boot of a car: Kick out the
back tail lights and stick your arm through the hole and start waving. The driver won't see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4.Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,
eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their cheque book, or making
a list).

DON'T DO THIS! A predator could be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, and attack you. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a car park:

A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the
passenger side floor, and check the back seat.

B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most attackers surprise their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle,
and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest
your car, you may want to walk back into the shop, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY.(And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the lift instead of the stairs. Stairwells are
horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control,
ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a
good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help" into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called
the police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police told her
'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door." The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, "We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door." He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear babies' cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.
>Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby.
> I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may

> A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. Send this to
> any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it's better safe than sorry.

Be aware of new car-jacking scheme
You walk across the car park, unlock your car and get inside.
Then you lock all your doors, start the engine and shift or put into reverse.

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 the gear stick back into park or neutral, 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, you would have left your 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 IN LONDON/MANCHESTER MAKING ITS WAY ACROSS THE COUNTRY!!!!!!!!

Just drive away and remove the paper later! It is stuck to your
window and be thankful that you read this email.
I hope you will forward this to friends and family especially to
women! A purse contains all identification, and you certainly do
NOT want someone getting your home address. They already HAVE your keys!!!

I have also heard of a similar car-jacking scheme being carried
out by leaving a traffic cone in the road in a relatively quiet
area...so you stop and get out of your car to move it...leaving your enginerunning...sure you can work out the rest.

They would be the future if you didn't keep kidnapping them while their parents were out having a meal.
A. No
B. Highly unlikely

3. If you are ever thrown into the boot of a car: Kick out the

Yea, right. It’s hard enough getting the bloody cover off to change a light bulb.

A. I did a quick search and couldn't find any Poeple, but I did find Gary Poepl from Münich. Perhaps you could ask him if he believes it?


B. I think not, apart from in certain areas of Pembrokeshire.
I've seen these sorts of emails/stories floating around on the net for quite a while now. You could probably find a version of it on any Urban Legend site.

Still at least I now know what I'll be doing this weekend :twisted:
In answer to your question - no.

This type of email, as far as I'm concerned, is up there with the ones that say things like 'forward this on to five friends, do NOT delete, or bad luck will come your way'. Dross like that just gets instantly deleted from my inbox and has done for years. It prays on people's insecurities and it's pure rubbish.
a: No
b: Only in America :twisted:
What utter bollox, this type of nonsense as stated before preys on people's insecurities. It is absolute scaremongering. Some fool forwarded a similar one to me a couple of years ago, supposedly started by some female USMP and her name rank and unit were listed as verification of the story. So, being the good girl I am, I phoned the unit stated and the person doesn't even exist. So if you really care about someone don't send them this crap.

Ahem..."Can’t have come from the police the spelling and grammar are far too good..."

Did PC Bandalong's attempt to throw us off the scent just backfire?

To be fair, two subjects that function as a single unit may take a singular verb e.g. reading and writing is an educational priority, bacon and eggs makes a great breakfast, girls and guns is a favourite topic and MDN and gerbils is a great combination.
