Never meet a stranger without SnapMail – here’s why

Here is a frightening story about a guy who went to meet a stranger who was interested in buying his car.  You can read the full story here but basically a man who went to meet a woman he had contacted online was the victim of a car jacking, according to police in Ireland.

 

The 28-year-old man told police that he had been waiting to meet a woman he had met online when he became the victim of crime.  The pair had arranged to meet up at a car park close to a town centre and the man said he was waiting there when he was approached by a man with a knife.  The thief demanded his wallet and the keys to his jeep.

 

He was then put under duress and had to show the thief how to start the jeep as it is an automatic.

Police say the victim was left in fear.  A spokesman for the Irish police advised anyone arranging to meet up with someone they have contacted online to be careful.

 

The free SnapMail app could easily have prevented this crime from happening.  One quick photo of the thief and the game is up for him.  Why would a guy commit a crime if he knows his photo is recorded at the scene of the crime at that time?  You can’t have an alibi when you’ve just been SnapMailed!

 

The premium version of the app, called SnapMail Emergency, alerts 5 of your friends by an SOS text and e-mail if you find yourself in a vulnerable situation like this.
