Default Rapist trick--this is not a joke!

I got this e-mail today and just thought I should pass it on. It says that you should always know how much money you are carrying, you'll find out why while reading. Read on, stay vigilant and stay safe.

It's a clever idea, but an untrue story. Internal affairs investigates crimes by cops, not serial killer/murderers.

That said, the logic is sound.

Ineff, you are correct about the e-mail being a fake. There are several ones much like it, only with different approaches. Snopes.com.

I didn't realize it was a fake. I thought it might be need to know info for any members living or planning to travel to that area.
