    got this from my email...

    =============

    i'm forwarding you a warning i got today about a new hold-up technique. stay
    safe!

    This is the same thing that happened to me last June 21, 2004. I hailed a
    cab at The Landmark Mall going to SM City, where I was supposed to meet my
    friends going to Sta. Clara church. The description below matched the cab
    driver, who was also wearing a cap, kinda long-faced, has fair complexion.
    It was extremely terrifying as all along, the 2nd guy was just inside the
    trunk of the car. The driver will slowly pull down his car to give chance
    for the 2nd guy to get out of the trunk, and will just surprise you from
    behind. I always lock my doors,but since the car was auto-locked, the driver
    will just let his companion in easily. The 2nd guy was really short, around
    5'1, 5'2 in height, really thin, OBVIOUS NA DRUG ADDICT. He was carrying a
    knife and will pres s it against your neck and waist. His parting words was
    the same, "Tumakbo ka na bilisan mo, P.I.!!, kundi papatayin kita, pasalamat
    ka di ako pumapatay ng babae, pag nagkataon, ngayon pa lang!!"They dropped
    me somewhere in New York, Cubao. Before letting you go, the 2nd guy will
    search your pockets just to be sure if there were valuables left.

    I reported the crime to the nearby PNP station and they said this was the
    first time they heard of this Modus Operandi. I was really glad that they
    just let me go but the experience is extremely traumatic. So please, please
    if you know of relatives, friends, officemates or whoever, who's taking a
    cab, be careful and extra vigilant. It was unfortunate for me not to get the
    plate no. of the car,which was a first as I always tell or text somebody the
    plate no. of the cab im riding in. The Nissan car is white, probably 99 or
    2000 model. Pass around please...
