Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

I usualy don't forward anything that threatens you with bad luck, death or similar things, but this one I've received today and I decided to post it here and warn everyone. Being so kind, trusting and afraid to upset people I would probaby give this guy a ride..... and end up dead.

> About a month ago there was a woman standing by the mall entrance

> She got the jack out of the trunk and began to change the flat. A
> nice man dressed in a business suit and carrying a briefcase walked
> up to her and said, "I noticed you're changing a flat tire.
> Would you like me to take care of it for you?" The woman was
> Grateful for his offer and accepted his help.
> They chatted amiably while the man changed the flat, and then put
> the flat tire and the jack in the trunk, shut it and dusted his
> hands off.
> The woman thanked him profusely, and as she was about to get in

> to his car.
> She was a little surprised and she asked him why his car was on
> other side.
> He explained that he had seen an old friend in the mall that he
> hadn't seen for some time and they had a bite to eat, visited
> for a while, and he got turned around in the mall and left through the
> wrong exit, and now he was running late. The woman hated to tell
> him "no" because he had just rescued her from having to change her
> flat tire all by herself, but she felt uneasy. (Trust that gut feeling!)
> Then she remembered seeing the man put his briefcase in her trunk
> before shutting it and before he asked her for a ride to his car.
> She told him that she'd be happy to drive him around to his car,
> But she just remembered one last thing she needed to buy.
> (Smart woman!!)
> She said she would only be a few minutes; he could sit down in
> her car and wait for her; she would be as quick as she could be.
> She hurried into the mall, and told a security guard what had
> happened, the guard came out to her car with her, but the man had
> left. They opened the trunk, took out his locked briefcase and
> took it down to the police station.
> The police opened it (ostensibly to look for ID so they could
> return it to the man). What they found was rope, duct tape, and
> knives. When the police checked her "flat" tire, there was nothing
> wrong with it; the air had simply been let out. It was obvious
> what the man's intention was, and obvious that he had carefully
> thought it out in advance. The woman was blessed to have escaped
> harm. (Amen?thank you, God!)
> How much worse it would have been if she had children with her and
> had them wait in the car while the man fixed the tire, or if she
> had a baby strapped into a car seat? Or if she'd gone against her
> judgment and given him a lift?
> I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save

Natalia: be safe out there. In out business its always good to have someone call you on your cell for example if you are not sure about the set up or the area.

Hi Natalia - I've received my I.R.E.S. Designation in Vancouver, BC, Canada today and I noticed that you have a IRES designation as well.  I'm presently building a larger network so that your listings can be featured in my city (for an international exposure), and mine can be featured by you.  Presently I have approximately 20 listings which might be of interest to you.  

Look forward to chatting some more with you with respect to co-listing each other's properties, if you are interested in speaking further?  Cheers, Jark.
