A Carjacking Scheme?

Got this via email, but not sure if it’s true:

Warning from police: If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away.

Normally, you would walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside, start the engine then shift into Reverse. When you look into the rear-view mirror to back out of your parking space, you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view. When you reach the back of your car; that is when the carjackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off. They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car. So now the carjacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys!

The email claimed this occurred near Sultan Center Mangaf. In any case, stay safe.

  1. It might be true. The girls at work were telling me about this a couple of weeks ago. I always leave my car and bag and wander off somewhere to do something quick :/

  2. How is he going to be close enough spectating me to jump in my car in a matter of seconds without looking suspicious?

    He’d deserve my car if he was fast enough to do it honestly. Plus, he’d have two charges grand theft auto and a hit and run since he’d reverse on the owner of the car standing near the rear window. Not exactly a smart elaborate plan.

    What happened to the good ol’ “beat down and steal” carjacking?

    Myth busted, I say. Good luck escaping in jam3ya traffic and parking.

  3. suspic: The dude hides behind a near-by car, while you go out of your car to remove the paper/flier, he jumps into your seat, slam the door, locks the doors, and bye-bye car.

    As for jam3iya traffic — the incidents have been happening in a sort-of remote places where there aren’t much people, hence not much traffic.

    The scheme is quite possible.
