She had finished shopping and tossed her bags in her car. She was driving on the highway when she realized that someone had put a $100 bill under her windshield wiper.

When she pulled out the bill, there was a note on the back that read “haha, you thought this was real, didn’t you?” What seems like an odd prank was actually something far more sinister.

She learned that when some drivers see the cash before they drive away, they hop out of the car with the engine running. A carjacker parked next to them pops out, jumps in the car, then drives off.
