Crime Alert: Hoax 911 Email

Feb 10, 2011 08:28PM ● By Anonymous
The email instructs the reader to dial 112 on their cell phone to be automatically connected to a state police dispatcher in all 50 states. The email goes on to detail how a female driving alone saved herself from being sexually assaulted by dialing 112 when a police impersonator driving an unmarked police vehicle with a flashing red light attempted to pull her over. While the threat posed by persons impersonating police should not be diminished, it is important to emphasize that the 112 feature is nonexistent and the email is a hoax.
