    Ok Snopes people........prove me wrong on this. Got this e-mail this morning, thought it was good info if true....




    A man came over and offered his services as a painter to a female
    putting gas in her car and left his card.

    She said no, but accepted his
    card out of kindness and got in the car.

    The man then got into a car
    driven by another gentleman.

    As the lady left the service station, she
    saw the men following her out of the station at the same time.



    Almost immediately, she started to feel dizzy and could not catch her
    breath.

    She tried to open the window and realized that the odor was on
    her hand; the same hand which accepted the card from the gentleman at
    the gas station.

    She then noticed the men were immediately behind her
    and she felt she needed to do something at that moment.

    She drove into
    the first driveway and began to honk her horn repeatedly to ask for
    help.



    The men drove away but the lady still felt pretty bad for several
    minutes after she could finally catch her breath.



    Apparently, there was a substance on the card that could have seriously
    injured her.



    This drug is called 'BURUNDANGA' and it is used by people who wish to
    incapacitate a victim in order to steal from or take advantage of them.



    This drug is four times dangerous than the date rape drug and is
    transferable on simple cards.



    So take heed and make sure you don't accept cards at any given time &
    alone or from someone on the streets.

    This applies to those making house
    calls and slipping you a card when they offer their services .

    I don`t know if it`s true or not but that`s one reason I tell people to stay out of my personal space and don`t accept anything from anybody.

    There was a similar scenario about the discount perfume sales people asking people in parking lots to sniff their perfume, and drugging them.

    True or not do not take any chances and always be aware of your surroundings and what is going on
