Know what money you are carrying! You will see why as you read!
Share this with all the women you know. This was the first I have
heard of a scheme like this.....I wanted to pass it along.
Criminals are coming up with craftier, less threatening methods of
attack, so we have to be extra cautious.
I live in Alexandria , VA , but I often work in Lafayette , LA ,
staying with friends when I'm there. You may 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. 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 man 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,
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
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
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. The fact that he has been attacking in the
daytime, when women a re 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 you 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
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
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! Please forward to anyone you think might benefit from
