A NEW FORM OF KIDNAPPING
Please take a minute to read this. This is very scary and could
happen to any of us. Seems like every nice thing people do for one
another can be perverted . A new twist on kidnapping....... From a
very smart survivor:
About a month ago there was a woman standing by the mall entrance
passing out flyers to all the women going in. The woman had written
the flyer herself to tell about an experience she had, so that she
might warn other women.
The previous day, this woman had finished shopping, went out to her
car and discovered that she had a flat. She got the jack out of the
trunk and began to change the flat. A nice man dressed in business
suit and carrying a briefcase walked up to her and said, "I noticed
you're changing a flat tire. Would you like me to take care of it
for you?" The woman was grateful for his offer and accepted his help.
They chatted amiably while the man changed the flat, and then put
the flat tire and the jack in the trunk, shut it and dusted his hands
The woman thanked him profusely, and as she was about to get in her
car, the man told her that he left his car around on the other side
of the mall, and asked if she would mind giving him a lift to his
She was a little surprised and she asked him why his car was on the
other side. He explained that he had seen an old friend in the mall
that he hadn't seen for some time and they had a bite to eat and
visited for a while and he got turned around in the mall and left
through the wrong exit, and now he was running late.
The woman hated to tell him "no" because he had just rescued her
from having to change her flat tire all by herself, but she felt uneasy.
Then she remembered seeing the man put his briefcase in her trunk
before shutting it and before he asked her for a ride to his car.
She told him that she'd be happy to drive him around to his car,
but she just remembered one last thing she needed to buy.
She said she would only be a few minutes; he could sit down in her car and wait for
her; she would be as quick as she could be. She hurried into the mall,
and told a security guard what had happened; the guard came out to her
car with her, but the man had left.
They opened the trunk, took out his locked briefcase and took it
down to the police station. The police opened it (ostensibly to look for
ID so they could return it to the man). What they found was rope,
duct tape, and knives. When the police checked her "flat"
tire, there was nothing wrong with it; the air had simply been let out.
It was obvious what the man's intention was, and obvious that he had
carefully thought it out in advance. The woman was blessed to have
escaped harm. How much worse it would have been if she had children
with her and had them wait in the car while the man fixed the tire,
or if she had a baby strapped into a car seat? Or if she'd gone against
her judgment and given him a lift?
I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save
a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. I was
going to send this to the ladies only; but guys, if you love your
mothers, wives, sisters,daughters, etc., you may want to pass it on to them,

What kind of 'witch' are you?
You are a fiery witch. Your charisma and sensual beauty draw many to you. You are creative and full of vitality and inspiration. Never one to blend in, you're appearance is bold, bright and..er.. fiery :) You draw your power from fire and may be a bit of a pyro.. for pretty sented candles at least.
