If you were in your car and noticed a $100 bill on your windshield would you jump out to get it? Why not? All of us could use a $100 dollars every now and again. But if you find money on your windshield, it could be sign that something more sinister is abound.
Imagine that you've just finished doing some shopping. You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car, get inside and put the key in the ignition. Your doors lock automatically when you start the engine and shift into reverse. All routine actions. But when you look into the rear-view window to back out of your parking space, you notice something out of the ordinary. Is that a $100 bill on your windshield?
There must be some angel looking over you. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, you go out to get a better look at this mysterious gift. So, you shift into park, unlock your doors and jump out of your vehicle. But by the time you've reached the back of the car, it's too late. As soon as you leave the car, the thieves spring into action.
Car-jackers appear of nowhere, hop into your car and speed off. When you went to collect that $100 bill, you left your engine running and your purse in the car. They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car and out of sight, leaving you totally stranded. This scam has been going on worldwide for at least a year now. But one mom, Kyri Viehman, was luckier than most.
