Missouri native Kyri Viehman was on her way home from the Gravois Bluffs shopping center when she noticed something stuck to her windshield.
When she looked closer, she noticed it was a $100 bill. Of course, waiting for her on her windshield. Of course, she stopped the car to take it…
Little did she know that a disaster was waiting around the corner.
Getting out of the car was not the smartest thing to do.
Kim was glad to see a $100 bill on the windshield. No one can refuse a freeby, right?
But as soon as she took the bill, she noticed it was fake.
That’s when she realized that the bill was there for a reason.
Majority of people would notice it on the parking lot, some even after starting their car…
But that’s exactly what carjackers are counting on. You get out of the car to get the bill, they slide in and your car is a gonner. Fortunately for Kyri, she had driven far away… She was actually safe.
But it turns out people are always trying to find new (and creative, if you ask me) ways to take advantage of others…
Young Kim experienced something similar.
This is the post she shared on Facebook:
“Two weeks ago, during the day, a hard knock was at my front door, not a regular knock but almost pounding… and I DO NOT answer the door when I am here by myself.” Naturally, Kim waited for the stranger to leave.
However, she noticed something strange on her door handle: there was a rubber band placed in a peculiar position. It seemed that the rubber band could be used to easily keep the door latch open – if you decide to unlock the door and greet a stranger.
Now, if you don’t have enough money to get a decent warning system, there’s a way around it…
You could get a fake system that is visible from the windows or/and the front door. Experienced ‘strangers’ can call your bluff, but some protection is better than no protection.
