**Does anybody know if this is true or not? Because I would feel really bad if it is and I didn't pass on.

Please read, this could save your life

I didn't know this, but I'm glad to know it now, and wanted to pass it on to my friends.

MUST KNOW *677

I knew about the red light on cars, but not the *677. It was about

1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend.

An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on.

*Lauren's parents have always told them never to pull over for an

unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they

get to a gas station, etc. *

Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly

called 677 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she

would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher

that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on

his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were

police cars where she and there weren't, and he told her to keep

driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.

Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car

behind her.

One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car

behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the

ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.

I never knew about the *677 Cell Phone Feature, but especially for a

woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car.

Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a safe

& quiet; place. You obviously need to make some signals that you

acknowledge them (i.e. put on your hazard lights) or call *677 like

Lauren did.

Too bad the cell phone companies don't generally give you this little

bit of wonderful information.

*Speaking to a service representative at **Bell** Mobility confirmed

that *677 was a direct link to OPP Dispatch. So, now it's your turn

to let your friends know about *677.

Send this to every woman (and person) you know; it may save a life.

Not sure if it's legit, but I'll call my cell phone carrier to confirm. Also check out snopes.com to verify.

i've read that before and even if it isn't true, it's very good to know. i think there have been 2 incidents recently that have had people killed/hurt by fake police. i remember one of them was a father on his way home from work and he was killed. he left behind a wife and kids. it's so scary, when you think about it.

i've told my mom to watch out. she works in the bronx and when she drives home every night from work at 11:30 PM, some roads are very dark with no cars and i always tell her to not stop (when the 2 incidents happened) because it could be a fake cop.
