So, EARLY this AM, around 4:30 our door bell rang. It kept ringing. I looked at the window, and there was a girl about 5''3.. standing there. I opened the window and said "what the heck?". She said "I need to use your phone for my friend". She was all dressed up with make up on. I said "NO WAY!. I am going to call the police if you don't leave...now". I closed the window and by the time I had looked out the window again, she had already made her way to the end of the driveway. About 10 sec later a car pulled up...she talked to them for about 10 sec and they drove off. Let me say my home is NOTHING special. We don't have a huge, nice home that would make people think we have money... b/c we really have VERY little. I am still scared...any advice?!

I would have told her to hold on that you will call the cops for her. Anyone with common sense should know not to let anyone in your home to use the phone, you call for them. I don't blame you for what you did but I would have called the police.

You did the right thing. I would feel more comfortable about it and report the incident to the police. Around this time of the year, and with the economy being the way it is, peole will do anything to get what they need.
The police had said even if we see a woman standing on the side of the road, with a flat tire, with children with her, not to stop.....pull away from the car, and contact them and stay with in distance to see her until they arrive.
They said people will use women and children to commit crimes and since we see them as the most vulnerable, we are quick to assist.
Try reporting it to the police to see if they have any other incidents like this and it can be reported to the local newspaper (hopefully) so that others in your area are aware of something like this.
