Lipstick?

Another e-mail from mum.

Police Warning ON LIPSTICK MARKS ON FRONT OR REAR WINDSCREEN OF CAR 

Just last weekend on Friday night we parked in a public parking area. As we drove away I noticed a lipstick mark in the shape of a woman's lips on the front window of the car. We thought it was a joke and just laughed at it. 

When I tried to wash it off, the marks didn't come easily as it was waterproof. Luckily my friends told me to get back into the car as it could be someone waiting for me to get out of the car. The very next day, I parked my car at the same parking area and when we returned after our shopping, my car was missing. I had to make a police report the stolen car and forward an insurance claim . 

Then we received this email yesterday : 
WARNING FROM POLICE 
THIS APPLIES TO BOTH WOMEN AND MEN 
BEWARE OF LIPSTICK PRINTS ON THE FRONT OR BACK WINDOW OF YOUR VEHICLE-- NEW WAY TO DO CARJACKINGS (NOT A JOKE)' 
Heads up everyone! Please, keep this circulating..... You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. When you get into your car, you notice a lipstick mark on the front or back windscreen. Many drivers do not take this seriously and end up just wiping those lipstick stains off. 

This is a new syndicate making their rounds in Malaysia . This lipstick stain is a marking for the syndicate members to identify which car to be stolen or car jacked. This new method has been discovered already in Penang , Malacca , KL and JB. 

Be careful if you see the lipstick mark on your windscreen. This means your car has already been marked and could be stolen from under your very eyes , even in the car park. You are advised not to leave your parking ticket in the car in any 
carpark and if you discover that your car had already been marked by the lipstick stain, please be advised to install a reputable alarm system in your car to deter the thieves. 

BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED... 
If you see a lipstick stain on your window, don't just ignore it And be thankful that you read this e-mail. I hope you will forward this to friends and family. Please keep this going and tell all your friends
