While driving on a rural end of the roadway a woman saw an infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over it. For whatever reason, they did not stop, even though they had all kinds of thoughts running through their head. But when they got to their destination, they called the police and they were going to check it out. But, this is what they advised even before they went out there to check....

       "There are several things to be aware of ... gangs and thieves are now plotting different ways to get a person (mostly women) to stop their vehicle and get out of the car. "There is a gang initiation reported by the local police where gangs are placing a car seat by the road...with a fake baby in it....waiting for a woman, of course, to stop and check on the abandoned baby.

       "Note that the location of this car seat is usually beside a wooded or grassy (field) area and the person -- woman -- will be dragged into the woods, beaten and raped, and usually left for dead. If it's a man, they're usually beaten and robbed and maybe left for dead, too. Do not stop for any reason!!! dial 9-1-1 and report what you saw, don 't even slow down.


       "If you are driving at night and eggs are thrown at your windshield, do not stop to check the car, do not operate the wipers, and do not spray any washer fluid because eggs mixed with water become milky and block your vision up to 92.5%, and you are then forced to stop beside the road and become a victim of these criminals.

       This is a new technique used by gangs, so please inform your friends and relatives. These are desperate times and these are unsavory individuals who will take desperate measures to get what they want."


       It was about 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and 'Lauren' was driving to visit a friend. An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind herand put his lights on. Lauren's parents have always told her never to pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road,but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc. Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren't, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.

       Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes. I never knew about the 112 Cell Phone feature, but especially for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a safe place.

       Speaking to a service representative at Bell Mobility confirmed that 112 was a direct link to State trooper info.So, now it's your turn to let your friends know about 112. You may want to send this to everyone you know; it may save a life. This applies to ALL 50 states


       Don't respond to Emails, phone calls, or web pages which tell you to call an "809" Phone Number. A scam that is spreading *extremely* quickly and can easily cost you $thousands. The reason you're asked to call varies. It can be to receive information about a family member who has been ill, to tell you someone has been arrested, died, to let you know you have won a wonderful prize, etc. In each case, you are told to call the 809 number right away. Since there are so many new area codes these days, people unknowingly return these calls. The point is, they will try to keep you on the phone as long as possible to increase the charges. Unfortunately, when you get your phone bill, you'll often be charged $thousands!

       The 809 area code is located in the British Virgin Islands (The Bahamas). Since 809 is not in the US, it is not covered by U.S. regulations, which require that you be notified and warned of charges and rates involved when you call a "pay-per-call" number. Further, whereas many U.S. phones have 900 number blocking to avoid these kinds of charges, 900 number blocking will not prevent calls to the 809 area code. It's important to prevent becoming a victim of this scam, since trying to fight the charges afterwards can become A real nightmare. That's because you did actually make the call. If you complain, both your local phone company and your long distance carrier will not want to get involved and will most likely tell you that they are simply providing the billing for the foreign company. You'll end up dealing with a foreign company that argues they have done nothing wrong.

       809 is also the area code in the Dominican Republic
