Since a couple of our writers have been busy, I wanted to post this very important information I received in an email. It seems there might be a rapist in Virginia, and he is raping people for $5 a raping. Just read the email below and you will see. It must be true because it uses ALL CAPS alot, it mentions a police department, and it has been forwarded quite a few times before it got to me, which means a lot of people had a chance to decide this was false info, but they didn't. So please, please, please, take heed and tell everyone you know, or at the very least the people that you would not like to see get raped.
Remember, rape is not a joke, people. It’s not even a tasteless and offensive joke. And be careful when coming out of any Exxon/Blimpie Pie Station because even if they have cheap gas you will likely get raped. And is that really worth the savings? No, not even in this economy.
The important email:
Rapist's New Trick -- Please take 3 minutes and read this ... then pass it on.
Know what money you are carrying.. You will see why as you read.
Be sure every woman is aware of this method of operating. Share it with those you love. Know what money you are carrying.. This was the first I have heard of a scheme like this. 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 about the author who lives in Alexandria, VA.
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 wa nt 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 0D> 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 Appaloosas , 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, etc.). He walked up to my window and knocked. Since I'm very paranoid and 'always looking for the rapist or killer,' I didn't open the window.
I just asked 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 volatile .... it 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.
Post script: Okay, by now you realize I am making fun of this email that is pretty effed up and really will likely just scare more people than it will help. I supposed if it does prevent one person from being raped at an Exxon/Blimpie Pie Station, that is a good thing.
But before you dismiss the warning here entirely, I just wanted to add that one time I was coming out of 7-11 and a guy came up to me with a baby and he was like "Sir, you dropped your baby." And then he raped me. And then I took a paternity test and found out that the baby I supposedly dropped was actually Geoff Crump’s baby.
So now I never go to 7-11, only White Hen Pantry.
