The ring on her car was a trap! See the danger averted
This lady got out of the store and went to her car. She got in and saw SUV parking next to her on an empty parking lot. Her instincts saved her from a horrible encounter!
The woman was all alone at the parking lot. She had a very useful habit, though. As soon as she got into her car, she locked all the doors. You should get a habit like that for your own safety’s sake. This large white vehicle parked right next to her car, and she deemed it to be suspicious.
There was plenty of space for parking. So, she drove off right away, being alarmed by what happened. On her way home, she found something glittering on her car’s windshield. She stopped to see what it was and discovered a large ring with what seemed to be a pink diamond in it. Surely, the ring was a fake.
What was the danger averted by her alertness? Well, this is how they steal people for trafficking. You get out of your car to see the jewelry piece, the men jump out of the other vehicle, push you into it and drive you away. Empty parking lots are the risk zone for women. So, if you see a note, jewelry or some money on your car, stop and do not approach it. Wait for other people to drive in or call the police. Once you get into the car, lock all the doors at once, but first check and see if no one is hiding inside.
Here is what the woman has to say about the whole thing:
“I STRONGLY urge everyone to tell your loved ones about this scenario, whether it be your daughter, son, sister, brother, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, or friends — and share this post and get the word out.”
Some lives could be saved by people minding their own safety in public places!
