If You See Clothes On Your Car, Don’t Touch It And Drive Away!

Share this article on social media.



New scams come out every month or even every week and you don’t want to risk falling for them and lose your money, car, or even get seriously injured. New scams are often advanced variations of some long-running criminal schemes, but they’re sometimes new and pretty ingenious. In any case, being aware of these popular tricks will allow you to protect yourself and your loved ones so that nobody falls victim to these criminals.

A seemingly misplaced garment on your windshield is actually a new con being used by muggers and thieves. It works like this: if you see some random piece of clothing that prevents your wipers from moving or obscures your view, your first reaction will be to remove it, of course. But while you’re distracted untying it or trying to get it off, the criminal has plenty of time to jump you.
The deceivers are sometimes women pretending to be pregnant. The thing is that even store security guards usually overlook women with big baby bumps, considering them no threat and innocent by default. Scammers take advantage of this and easily get away with committing petty crimes like pickpocketing or shoplifting.
Something resembling a Roman numeral “two” on your door means that the homeowners are rich, so the place is a great target. On the other hand, a crossed circle tells other burglars that there’s nothing valuable to take from the house. A long horizontal rectangle divided into 4 parts means the place has a big aggressive guard dog.
Sometimes criminals can even pretend to be… your victim! To do this, they might throw themselves at your car as you back out of a parking spot or something of the like. Of course, they won’t be harmed since they’ve been extremely cautious about it. But they’ll put on a performance worthy of an Oscar, moaning and screaming in pain or swearing that you’ve broken their expensive cell phone or watch and whatnot.
If you see a tracker on your car, be extremely cautious. If it’s easy really noticeable, someone has probably thrown it out their car window and is waiting for you to pull over and get out to take it off. And it’s at this moment when the bad guy will try to attack and rob you. Or they might wait until you get home to figure out where you live. On the other hand, if you find such a device in a hidden place, like underneath your car, it’s a real cause for concern because criminals are targeting you specifically.

SUMMARY
-If you see some random piece of clothing that prevents your wipers from moving or obscures your view, don’t remove it, you might be attacked by a criminal as you’re doing it.
-Strangers can pretend to be from your gas or electric company, a door-to-door proselytizer or charity collector while in fact they just wanna have a peek inside your house, scope out anything valuable, and come back later to break in and steal your stuff.
-Sometimes a woman who seems pregnant will ask for help or pretend to feel unwell and while you’re saving her, her partner-in-crime can steal your wallet.
-Burglars use certain marks to tell other criminals different things about your home so if you see graffiti on your door, call the police immediately.
-Some criminals throw themselves at your car and then demand money for the “damage” you’ve caused them.
-Many scammers meet people in dating apps or sites and demand money to help them solve “problems” they don’t actually have.
-Criminals can use these “magno-GPSes” to stalk their victims and find out when they’re at home or work or wherever.

    Gotta laugh at videos like this that use white middle class looking people as criminals. If you get mugged in a parking garage he's not going to look like a college professor.

    Other two: 1. If someone throws an egg to your car's windshield, don't spray water and also don't turn the wiper on, the visibility will become even less if you do so.
    2. If beggars ask for food, you should not give them, there is a chance they will pretend to be sick and their fellow thieves will ask you for money.

    I've noticed some of these free public announcements for your personal protection they always put the bad guy to be a white person a lady or man and even a kid sometimes and everyone knows according to the FBI statistics 85% of the crime in America is committed by blacks and that is a proven fact. I hate when they try to make white people look to be the worst ones of all which is actually the blacks who you kidding.
