New Rape Scam

 

                                      NEW RAPE SCAM!   PLEASE READ!


Please pass on to all your girlfriends, wives, etc.
Just to be on the safe side. Please be aware and pass it on to anyone you think this will help. 

Sunday afternoon around 5 PM I headed into the Target in 

Philadelphia,  Pa. where crime is VERY RARE and
mostly it is with bikes being stolen!! 

It was still light outside and I parked fairly close
to the entrance. As I got out of my car and began
walking towards Target, an older lady shouted to me
from the passenger seat of a car about 30 feet away
from me. 

"Ma'am you must help me, help me please, help me
Ma'am!" I looked at her in the eyes and started to
walk towards her when all of a sudden I remembered
an email my Mom had sent me a week or two ago about
rapists and abduct ions using elder people to lure
women in. 

I paused, memorized the license plate and
immediately headed into Target to get a manager to
come help this lady, just in case something was up.
While the woman manager headed out there, I
kept a close watch just because I was curious what
was wrong with the lady and wanted to be sure
nothing happened. 

As the Target lady walked up towards the car and got
very close to the old woman in order to help her,
the back door of the car flies open and a large man
with a stocking cap on, jumps out and sticks a gun
to the lady's stomach as he shoves her into the back
of the car. 

I yelled out "call 911 " several times and just as I
was saying that, a policeman who happened to be on

the other side of the parking lot! And who, luckily
had seen the entire thing happen, raced over to the car.. 

He was able to stop the car and arrest the male as
well as the old lady, who was involved in the
scheme. By God's grace everyone was all right, 

including myself, although I think we were both
shaken up. 

Like many of you, I would not in a million years 
have left an elderly person who was yelling for help
if it weren't for the e-mail I had read last week.
So, I wanted to pass this along so you all can be
aware and remember that you really can't trust
anyone these days. 

You just never know when something like this could
happen. I would have never dreamed it to happen to
me especially on a Sunday afternoon at a Target in a
safe area! 

It definitely was not a coincidence that my Mom sent
that email just a few days before this all happened.
Please, be careful and always be aware of your
surroundings. 

Just because you individually don't go over to help
someone doesn't mean you have to leave them in
trouble , but don't go ALONE, you really don't know
what might be going on. 

This was checked with Snopes.com - this is true - and they
also use children to lure the victim!!
