    Default New Hi Jacking Strategy As Distributed By The Aa !!!



    Be aware of the new hi-jacking scheme. Here's how it works:
    You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside.
    Then you lock all your doors, start the engine and shift into REVERSE and you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space when you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window.
    So, you switch off the car or shift the gears into PARK, unlock your doors and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever itis) that is obstructing your view...
    When you reach the back of the car that is when the hi-jackers appear out of no where, jump into your car and take off!
    The door was unlocked, your keys were in the ignition, maybe the engine was running, (ladies would have probably left their handbag, with their purse, cellphone etc; in the car) and they practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.

    BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED!!!

    Should this happen to you, just drive away and remove the piece of paper that is stuck to your window later....and be thankful that you read this email.

    I hope you forward this to allyour friends and family...especially women! A purse contains all identification, and you certainly do NOT want anyone getting your home address. They already have your keys!

    Tom Odaniell, AA

    That's the scariest part! Heard this before, probably is true too considering we live in SA.

    Then the immobiliser kicks in 30 seconds later because you opened the car door.

    In recent days I've discovered that your IQ is linked to your post count!

    Anybody who jumps off with the keys still in their ignition and the door wide open is a daft idiot.

    I'm sure this is on snopes or something, sounds like a hoax.
    Procrastination is like masturbation. It may feel good at first, but when you look at the task at hand, you're actually screwing yourself.

    This is a fake.

    If you people were critical enough you would realise that from this line: "So, you switch off the car or shift the gears into PARK" that it is a fake. Most South Africans drive manuals and so would put their cars into NEUTRAL, not PARK.

    This is especially true if the warning came from the AA.

    People! Think before posting this junk

    According to www.snopes.com this is a hoax:

    (The message posted above by Nokkie is almost exactly the same as the one on snopes posted in 2004.)

    Well, at least you're honest about the fact that you intend to spam anyone who sends you their address...

    Rather keep an eye out for suspicious characters sitting on the corner of your street...I saw them lots of times and one night they were waiting for me at the gate...and it was goodbye car

    So it is good to spread fear and doubt so that people spend all their time looking over their shoulder instead of focusing on the situations when they should be looking for trouble.

    I am not sure if you are this stupid or if you are just pretending to have an IQ of 4.

    Dude spamming people with OBVIOUS HOAX emails is not helping the country or the crime problem....

    Your idea is not a good one and your email address will be on a spam list so quickly noone will ever receive the emails..... Maybe make a real website first and then see if people want to join.
