Be cAREFUL, not all guy in suits are good..

About a month ago there was a woman standing by the Mega 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 notice 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 off. 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 car. She was a little surprised and asked him>why his car was on 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; he got turned around in the mall and left through>the wrong exit, and now he was running late and his car was clear around on>the other side of the mall.>

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 to his car, but she just>remembered one last thing she needed to buy. She said she would only be 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 motive 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 had she waited 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, as well.
