You can never be too careful or too in the know. Thankfully the Internet is filling us in on this scary occurrence.

Last week there was a story right here in Rockford about a woman who is exactly my age who found a man hiding in the back seat of her car and of course it was a shocking reminder than you can never be too careful.

Shortly after that story showed up on Facebook, so did this story about a bunch of women in Utah who found the same creepy note on their cars.

While Utah isn't like five minutes away from Rockford or anything, it's still always important to be aware of these stories.

A few of the women responded to the note and had a text relationship with the man who says his name is Chris, some making plans to meet him.

According to Fox 13 in Salt Lake City, one of the women's mothers did some research on the man and found out he has a criminal record and was on probation for a sexual crime involving a minor.
