The scary reason why you should always memorise your number plate

The Fishers police department in Indiana, USA has sent out a message warning drivers of a potentially dangerous situation. The force posted on its Facebook page, informing motorists that two mystery men had been reported talking to a woman, attempting to get her to leave her car.

According to the police, the men signalled to the woman that she should pull over and roll down her window. When she did so, the men held up a car's number plate, indicating that it had fallen off her vehicle and that she should get out of the car and reattach it.
