Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths ~ Proverbs 3:5-6

Know what money you are carrying. You will see why as you read. Be sure

every woman is aware of this M.O. Share it with your wife and daughters.

Know what money you are carrying...This was the first I have heard of a

scheme like this..... I wanted to pass it along. Be safe!

Something very serious to pay attention to.

Criminals are coming up with craftier, less threatening methods of

attack, so we have to be extra cautious.

Read on...

I live in Alexandria , VA , but I often work in Lafayette , LA , staying

with friends when I'm there. As you 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. But 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


looking for the rapist

or killer,' I didn't open the window. I just


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 money!

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 was determined that I could have possibly encountered the

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 And the fact that he has been attacking in the daytime,

when women are 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 he????

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 I was!

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 this story..
