Subject: [Sc-Ir] Gals Beware, Guy tell your gals, New ploy to get into your car

I hadn't heard of this trick before--I don't know who this happened to but
it is a good reminder.

As you know from America's Most Wanted TV program, as well as the news
media, there is a serial killer in the Lafayette, Lousiana 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 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 backside
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 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.
At this point, it is unclear as to how he gains 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. (and think
about it...what gesture is nicer than returning money to someone that
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...it probably
wasn't... 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
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 seemingly doing an act of kindness, but HE WAS NOT A NICE
PERSON!!! BEWARE! Keep your guard up, because you have no IDEA who the "bad
guys" really are!
