    I just got this info via e-mail.
    This may/may not be the case but is worth reading...

    WARNING from NRMA...

    You walk across the car park, unlock your car and get inside. Then you lock all your doors, start the engine and shift into REVERSE, and you look into the rear-view mirror to back out of your parking space and you notice apiece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift the gear stick back into PARK, unlock your doors and jump out off your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view. When you reach the back of your car, that is when the car-jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off! Your engine was running, you would have left your purse in the car and they practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.
    BE AWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED IN SYDNEY AND COULD SPREAD ACROSS AUSTRALIA.
    Just drive away and remove the paper that is stuck to your window later,and be thankful that you read this email. A purse contains all identification, and you certainly do NOT want someone getting your home address. Especially when they already HAVE your HOUSE KEYS!!!
