New Robbery Method in Manila Malls

I received this forwarded email this morning and would like to share it to all of you. I am not sure if this is true because I have never heard of it in the news, but there is no harm in being more cautious. It is now 50 days before Christmas and we can expect to see a rise in crimes, especially in malls where most people are doing their early Christmas shopping. So read on and be warned of this new robbery method:

The Latest Scam:
Robbing Females using the restroom/ladies/bathroom inside shopping malls.

The way the scam works, a man slips into a women's rest room and sneaks into a unit. He waits until there is only one woman in the restroom in a neighboring unit/stall.

The criminal then stands on the toilet seat and points a hand gun into the next unit/stall, demanding the woman's valuables. After getting her cash and jewelry, he demands that she removes all of her clothing and kicks them out of the unit/stall. The thief tosses the clothing into a shopping bag, hangs an 'out of order sign' on the restroom door outside, and slips back into the mall. The 'out of order sign' ensures no one will soon come to the woman's rescue. It usually takes an hour or two for the woman to work up the nerve to leave the rest room in the nude, giving the criminal ample time to make his get away. The woman is left naked humiliated in a mall full of strangers.

The best defense, says police, is to never go into a shopping mall restroom alone, as only women who are by themselves are targeted. This has so far been a nearly perfect crime, as none of the perpetrators have been caught.

Don't let this happen to another woman.
