The whole point of a hit is that is is supposed to be surreptitious, and therefore unprovable afterward. To complicate matters, many signs also
point to you being stalked or framed, or spied on, rather than being set up for a hit. So you cannot jump to conclusions. you CAN compare it with
the motives of people in your life.
Here are a few classic signs:
-Someone in your life takes an unusual interest in your schedule---especially if only on one specific date. Even moreso if they only barely know you,
or seem to already know details about your plans you haven't shared with that person.
-Someone in your life asks you to change your schedule for no good reason. Someone of the guys you play poker with wants to move the poker game to a
Tuesday next week, when you guys have played on Thursdays for years. The person cannot give a good explanation of why, or you suspect or catch them
lying about it.
- You recognize the same car at different points in your life. There's a tan Lincoln town car parked a block up the street when you drive off to
work. You see the car later that night, when you're eating at a pizzeria on the other side of town.
-The is always a car just within sight in your rear-view mirror. The specific vehicle may change, but as soon as a car in that spot turns off your
route, another nondescript car immediately takes its spot and matches your speed.
-You notice workmen who aren't really doing anything. A utility truck is parked in the alley several houses down from you. There's a guy in a
uniform, but he doesn't seem to be accomplishing anything, or have any real purpose. They are like extras in a movie, or the "crowd" in the operating
room in an old "M.A.S.H." episode.
-Your cellphone is stolen.
-A friend needs to borrow your cellphone, and returns it with the GPS enabled, other settings changed, or with an app added.
-Your email has been changed, or mails deleted without warning.
-Your home phone doesn't work right. Ringing for no reason, or hanging up; or clicks on the line.
-Strangers loitering around your vehicle when parked and unattended.
-signs of a break-in at home or office
-the occupant adjacent to you
has suffered from a crime that goes unsolved.
-Items are added to your home or workspace without explanation. The kids are playing with a toy that someone else gave them. There is a clock on the
wall at work in plain view of your desk, but has never been there before. No one seems to know when or why it was installed.
-you are privileged to someone else's negative information that is otherwise secret. Embezzling. a previous murder. adultery. the will has been
changed. you know where the money is buried.
-Your car has been tampered with--the seat is further forward when you get in, it won't start, etc. If it has trouble starting, stop trying and take
a look at the engine. Brakes suddenly fail, or the car sputters and stalls.
-First thing in the morning, your coffee cup looks clean, but has a gritty or powdery residue in the bottom-- when you know you cleaned it last time
after using it.
-someone insists that you switch small personal items with them (phone, a set of keys, etc) or wants you begin trying something new; a new medicine, a
new vitamin supplement, a new type of cuisine. "try these almond-flavored cookies---no come on! try them!).
-food or drink tastes strange; not spoilt, but a metallic or gritty aftertaste, or an out-of-place flavoriing. Spaghetti sauce that tastes like
almonds, for example.
-people invite you to drink too much--way too much.
-People saying you look ill, or you seemed depressed, or that you should see a shrink, or telling you to "cheer up" when you aren't sad.
-Finding out that someone has taken out additional life insurance on you without your knowledge. Seriously; you should call your agent periodically
and see if your spouse or employer has changed your policy.
Events around you that would fit into the pattern you fear, if they had happened to YOU. Examples:
-The neighbor is almost killed by a gas leak.
-The guy who takes the company car after you cancelled, is killed when the brakes fail.
-A former house guest suffers from a long illness after they leave your home.
-a friend is run off the road at night by another vehicle, when you loan them your car.
Finally, the ultimate sign of a hit: when you are the victim of a crime, and the perp isn't satisfied with when they get what they supposedly want.
In other words, the mugger doesn't put the gun down, even after he has your wallet. The kidnapper doesn't even go to pick up the ransom money when
it's delivered. The robber doesn't try the combination to the safe when you've just given it. The reason is, they are supposed to kill you. You are
supposed to struggle, or refuse to open the safe, or give up the ransom money, thus providing the alibi for murder. When you give in, you destroy
their motivation for an anonymous murd
