Thank Lisa. The baby thing has been around for a few years but didn't know gangs were using it now. I shared it on my Facebook page.

Whether this particular story is a hoax or not, it is still a great reminder that we cannot be too careful out there. The 'bad guys' are always thinking of ways to take advantage of us. This story is one way they could easily do that, and this method of playing on our desire to help, used in various forms, HAS been used in the past to lure women.

We must be diligent and very, very careful out there. It's a sad thing, but if a stranger is involved, I don't stop and help anyone anymore. I will go get a manager (if I'm in a parking lot) and think someone is in need or I'll call 911 if I see someone that appears to be in any kind of need or distress, but I do not intervene myself. I hate that the world has made me this way, but there it is.

So thanks Kathy for taking the time to remind us that we have to be careful and think these things through. It was very thoughtful of you! ;)
