Jusr received this

From an acquaintance, don't know if its common knowledge, but I pass it on anyway:
Please tell all your friends
        Warning..!!!!
        Just last weekend on Friday night we parked in a public
        car park. As we drove away I noticed a sticker on the
        rear window of the car. When I took it off (after I got home),
        it was a receipt for petrol. Luckily my friend had told me not to
        stop, as it could be someone waiting for me to get out of the
        car. Then we received this email yesterday.
        WARNING FROM POLICE
        THIS APPLIES TO BOTH WOMEN AND MEN
        BEWARE OF PAPER ON THE BACK WINDOW OF YOUR VEHICLE.
        NEW WAY TO DO CAR-JACKINGS. (NOT A JOKE).
        Heads up everyone! Please keep this circulating. You walk
        across the car park, unlock your car and get inside. You
        start the engine and put it into Reverse.
        When you look into the rear-view mirror to back out of your
        space, you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle
        of the rear screen. So you stop, and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is), because it is obstructing your view.
        Then when you reach the back of your car, is when the car-jackers appear out of nowhere.
        They jump in and take off. They practically run you over as they speed off.
        And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car.
        So now the car-jacker has your car, your home address, your
        money, and your keys. Your home and your whole identity are compromised!

        BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED.
        If you see a piece of paper stuck to the back window, lock your doors and just drive away.
        Remove the paper later. And be thankful that you
        read this e-mail. I hope you will forward this to friends and
        family, especially to women.
        A purse contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents, and you certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.

        Please tell all your friends

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Thank's Oldjim. pleased to hear its bogus. Had an half-idea it might be, but....just in case.

Which is why I posted it, since it did sound plausible.

What works for me is to simply drive a rubbish car.
I recommend a French car as being suitable for putting off would-be car jackers.
(That's the first time I've seen an upside to driving a French car)
