    * My name is Captain Abraham Sands of the Ontario Provincial

    Police Department.



    I have been asked by 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 cities.



    * 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 Simcoe area alone there have been 17 cases of people

    being stuck by these needles over the past five months.



    * We have verified reports of at least 12 others in various provinces around the country.

    It is believed that these may be copycat incidents due to someone reading about

    the crimes or seeing them reported on the 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, eight 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.

    This is fake. It has been going around the net for several years now.
