This scam has been reported back in February 2017 and apparently is still making its rounds. So we thought we should post this up for our readers as well.
According to Kyri Viehman and her first-hand account. She can see how easy it would be for someone to fall for this scam! I mean who wouldn’t jump out of their car if they saw a $100 dollar bill tucked under the windshield wiper.
Basically what happens is, the scammers hope that you get in your car and start it up before seeing the money and when you do, you get out of the car to get it. At this time, they quickly jump in your car and drive off!
Fortunately, Kyri Viehan was lucky enough not to notice the money until she was way down the freeway and the scammers were nowhere around. She also had her son with her straped in the car seat at that time, so you can imagine that if the carjackers got their way, she may have never seen him again!
She said when she noticed it, she pulled over to retrieve this miracle money that came into her life at the perfect time. She noted that the bill was placed under the wiper in a way that you would have to get out and walk in front of the car to get it from the wiper. You couldn’t just roll down your window and grab it, which is what the crooks were hoping for.
Unfortunately what she thought was miracle money turned out to be a big joke because as she turned it over it said “Ha Ha! You thought this was real, didn’t you?”
It’s been noted that usually the person that placed the SCAM MONEY on your car is parked right next to you, and as soon as you get out to get the money, they jump into the driver’s seat and take off.
So be safe out there and if you see money under your windshield wiper, make sure you do a quick scan around the park n lot and pretend you don’t see it. Get in your car and drive to the nearest police station and give them a call of what just took place.
