There seems to be a new scam going around where predators are preying on good people’s trusting natures. The results could end up being devastating, if not life ending, if you fall for it.
A woman in Texas, by the name of Kim Cernigliaro took to her Facebook profile recently to warn others about what she experienced. It’s been shared 180k times, and here it is, word for word, as she wrote it on Facebook:
Warning!!! Two weeks ago during the day, a hard knock was at my front door, not a regular knock but almost pounding, (I honestly thought something may have happened to someone and they needed help) but something didn’t feel right….and I DO NOT answer the door when I am here by myself. So don’t bother! After several Knocks, they finally left. I glanced and could see it was a man through the stained glass of my door. After about 30 minutes I walked outside to look for what I thought would be a brochure, but instead found a rubber band around my knob to hold the door to open when I unlocked the latch. I called Ron and he told me to get the gun out and leave it out. The Sheriff came by yesterday and said this is happening all of a sudden, as soon as you unlatch the door, they do not wait for you to turn the knob, they can bust in on you. Anyway just be careful, I USE to be such a trusting person, but not at all anymore! So let me just say, I have a GUN and I know how to use it, just FYI, I out shot my husband the last time we target practiced, so believe me, I will use it. I have too much to live for! Do NOT ANSWER doors without knowing for sure you know who is on the other side! Those days are over!!!! 😡😡😡Kids need to be made aware of this too!
There you have it! If you hear a knock at the door, and especially if you are alone, do not answer it if you are not expecting someone.
