Beware: ROBBERY claiming to send package for loved one
Gotten this from a blogger whose post I happened to see from Project Petaling Street.
It's from a forwarded email, pls beware, robbers are intelligent and resourceful nowadays for all the wrong reasons.

Hopefully all of you have not experienced this before and I TRULY hope this will benefit anyone who reads this mail.
My mother's house in Gombak, Kuala Lumpur was robbed about 2 weeks ago. I want to warn everyone the way 4 men with long knives, _____ of course, got in at 2pm (yes afternoon)
2 men with boxes, stood at the gate and told my mum that my brother asked them to deliver some things. Now, my mother being a Ultra cautious lady herself was fooled because they used MY BROTHER"S NAME AND HIS ORGANIZATION. That is the reason why she opened the gate for them. They were well dressed and smart.
Then 2 more men walked in, dragged mum into the house and tied her up. Proceeded upstairs to tie the rest of them at home. They were in the house for about 25 mins.
PLEASE TELL EVERYBODY YOU KNOW AT HOME NOT TO OPEN THE DOOR FOR ANYONE THEY DO NOT KNOW, NO MATTER WHOSE NAME THEY USE.
I also would like to thank god and the 4 men (if they read this) for not hurting anyone even though they were threatening them. For that we are really blessed. They even gave my mum a glass of water.
Happened in Kuantan. Theives attend Indian weddings, take pictures of ladies in jewellery and find out where they live. Then they will rob that person and ask for all the jewellery by showing the picture.
Personally, I heard from a source in Taiping, Perak, that last month a few robbers went into a Chinese wedding reception and not only robbed the hosts but all the guests at the wedding of their jewelleries and cash.
What an unsafe community these days.
