Personal Safety Tips; A Must Read for Everyone, Especially Women

PLEASE Share this!!!1_n

WRITTEN BY A COP: Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one’s life. In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation… This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know. After reading these 9 crucial tips, forward them 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. Learned this from a tourist guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,
DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you… Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.. 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 checkbook, or making a list, etc.
DON’T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head,
and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR ,

If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, Repeat:
DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware:look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor ,
and in the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.
Most serial killers attack 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 mall, 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 elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

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, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP 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 baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night.

10. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors! Please pass this on
This e-mail should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby Theory was mentioned on America ‘s Most Wanted when they profiled
the serial killer in Louisiana

I’d like you to forward this to all the women you know.
It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle..
I was going to send this to the ladies only,
but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc.,
you may want to pass it onto them, as well.

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 to be safe than sorry..
Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or
a loved one’s life.

Bogus car ads can lead to real losses for consumers; From The Indiana Attorney General, Via Mom

Attorney General Seal
Bogus car ads can lead to real losses for consumers
Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller warns consumers that an ultra-low price tag on a vehicle advertised online could be hiding a scam.
Zoeller said his office has received complaints from Hoosiers who have wired payments for cars listed online to later realize the vehicles were never shipped and the sellers can’t be reached.
Just like rental property scams, criminals can hijack legitimate car listings, change the contact information and then list the modified ads on another site; or they make up listings for vehicles that aren’t for sale or don’t exist.
The fraudulent seller often has long stories about why they aren’t available to show the car, why they can only be reached via email or why the car is priced below market value. Scammers may tell victims that they are going through a divorce and that’s why the price is low or claim they have been transferred overseas and can’t afford to have the car shipped to their new location.
Buyers are also told to send payment through a wire transfer service. Unfortunately, after victims send the money the cars never arrive and the scammers are long gone.
The Attorney General’s Office offers several tips to help consumers protect themselves from fraudulent car advertisements:
  • Scammers use a sense of urgency to force buyers to do things they wouldn’t normally do – such as disregard red flags and make a purchase without seeing the item in person;
  • Don’t use money transfer companies as an escrow service. Choose and contact a reputable escrow service yourself by verifying their legitimacy. Scammers will try to make you believe they are using an escrow service, when they have actually set up fake accounts using real company names;
  • Do not use money transfer services to purchase a vehicle online. They are not intended to be used for payment when doing business with a stranger you have not personally met; and
  • Be a cautious buyer and be prepared to walk away. Make sure you have the car checked out by a reputable company or someone you know and trust before purchasing it. If the seller does not allow this or tells you that he will only accept a money transfer before allowing you to see the car, walk away.
Also, be cautious if you advertise your car for sale online. Some scammers will produce fraudulent checks, cashier’s checks or money orders hoping the seller will release the car before realizing the check bounced. Be wary if a buyer pays with a check and then “realizes” they paid too much. The scammer may ask for you to wire the overages back while they have someone pick-up the vehicle. Unfortunately, the seller doesn’t realize the check was a fake before their car and money have been stolen.

A Danger Warning

I received this e-mail from my mother this morning:

Please read and forward this warning to family and friends.


Kids are putting Draino, tin foil, and a little water in soda bottles
and capping it up – leaving it on lawns.
When you go to pick up the trash, and the bottle is shaken just a little –
in about 30 seconds or less it builds up a gas and explodes with
enough force to remove some of your extremities.
The liquid that comes out is boiling hot as well.

Don’t pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or
in the gutter, etc. Pay attention to this.
A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A
small piece of foil. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!!
No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.

People are finding these “bombs” in mailboxes and in their yards,
just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the trash.
But, you’ll never make it!!! It takes about 30 seconds to blow after
you move the thing.

The video at SNOPES shows the
Indiana State Police Bomb Squad detonating one —
it’s truly horrifying! …. .. I checked “Truth or Fiction” and
“they” agree this is TRUTH!!! So be warned and beware.

I don’t understand why people would do such a thing!  God help us if they think this is funny, what will they come up with next?!  Please be sure to pass this along to everyone you know and care about because this is not a joke!
Always remember that Jesus died for us because he loves us!
May God protect us all,
Teresa Marie
