    Read this before your next gas fill-up. This world gets sicker everyday!

    Folks:
    Please take a couple minutes to read this warning about Gas Pumping
    Handles. Warning: Look at the gas pump handle BEFORE you pump your gas. Please read and forward to anyone you know who drives a car.

    My name is Captain Abraham Sands of the Jacksonville, Florida, Police Department. I have been asked by state and local authorities to write this email in order to get the word out to car drivers of a very dangerous prank that is occurring in numerous states. Some person or persons have been affixing hypodermic needles to the underside of gas pump handles! These needles appear to be infected with HIV positive blood. In the Jacksonville area alone, there have been 17 cases of people being stuck by these needles over the past five (5) months. We have verified reports of at least 12 others in various states around the country. It is believed that these may be copycat incidents due to someone reading about the crimes or seeing them reported on television. At this point no one has been arrested and catching the perpetrator(s) has become our top priority. Shockingly, of the 17 people who where stuck, 8 have tested HIV positive and because of the nature of the disease, the others could test positive in a couple years.

    Evidently the consumers go to fill their car with gas, and when picking up the pump handle get stuck with the infected needle.

    IT IS IMPERATIVE TO CAREFULLY CHECK THE HANDLE of the gas pump each time you use one. LOOK AT EVERY SURFACE YOUR HAND MAY TOUCH, INCLUDING UNDER THE HANDLE!

    If you do find a needle affixed to one, immediately contact your local
    police department so they can collect the evidence.

    If true, that is indeed sick & scary. For the 1st time, I'm glad to be in New Jersey, where all gas stations are full service!

    I try to be careful when I have to stick my fingers in change slots like on pay phones and cash machines. You never know what horrible things some fruitcake will do next...you gotta be very watchful.

    Just what I thought.

    By the year of 2000, when this message hit the internet, JSO (Jacksonville Sheriff's Office) put out a press release after that sayong that this was a hoax.

    However, that does not meant that we can give up on looking out for something like this to happen again.

    peace,

    for those of you without cell phones, they also have found some needles inside of the change return on public phones................

    - be cautious and move your hands slowly if you need to collect any change.

    There are some sick people in the world aren't there? Why would anyone get any type of amusement out of infecting somebody with the HIV?
