One California woman learned this lesson the hard way.
Stacey Grant posted a note on Facebook telling friends that she and her family were away on vacation in Las Vegas. Hours later, a U-Haul was at her front door, with three men stealing everything they could get their hands on.
It can happen to anyone. You put up a post and someone “Likes” it. This is what Michael Batson, 21, did after the status update Stacey posted went up.
He went a step further and text messaged her, inquiring about her trip with her family in Las Vegas, Nevada.
But police say they saw Batson and two others — Phillip McKnight, 32, and Tyrone Gibson, 20 — as they loaded property from the woman’s Fontana home into a U-Haul truck parked outside.
They got suspicious because it happened at 3a.m.
