In Katy, Tx 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 and 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 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 and could have seriously injured her. The drug is called ‘BURUNDANGA’ and it is used by people who wish to incapacitate a victim in order to steal or take advantage of them.

Four times greater than 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.

 

See here for the answer to the title.

One of the children in my mom´s high school wrote about "urban mythes" like this, that are presented as "real news" on the internet and then never seem to die. Everytime the country and city where this happens changes in the story. The same is true for the "smiley´s gang" story. Every once in a while you´ll hear the shocking story of a gang of guys who go to girls and ask them to smile. If the girl doesn´t smile, they carve a smile on her face (a bit like the Joker had in the latest Batman movie) The thing is...it never happened! According to the country the news is reported in, the gang changes their race too It´s always the race with the worst reputation.
