Regardless of the article being true or false if it has made anyone, especially women, more safety conscious then the article was worth posting.
The world is full of nutters. Daily headline news reports rapes, murders, abductions, violence etc. that do happen.
An email received from one forum member informs me that the same article has appeared on another forum. I?ve checked it out and below is a few of their comments.
There's nothing wrong with reminding people about using common sense from time to time, but I do hope you don't believe everything you receive on your email - that would be VERY scary
Shouldn't this type of e mail be reported, not sure who to though?
Urban myth or not. If someone can think it up then there is probably some one sick enough to act it out.
It all sounds like very good advice to me especially as I have to go back to England for a while.
