How to Lock Your Car


from an email I got....not a joke

I locked my car. As I walked away I heard my car door unlock. I went back and locked my car again three times .. Each time, as soon as I started to walk away, I would hear it unlock again!! Naturally alarmed, I looked around and there were two guys sitting in a car in the fire lane next to the store. They were obviously watching me intently, and
there was no doubt they were somehow involved in this very weird situation. I quickly chucked the errand I was on, jumped in my car and sped away.. I went straight to the police station, told them what had happened, and found out I was part of a new, and very successful,
scheme being used to gain entry into cars.
Two weeks later, my friend's son had a similar happening... . While traveling, my friend's son stopped at a roadside rest to use the bathroom. When he came out to his car less than 4-5 minutes later, someone had gotten into his car and stolen his cell phone, laptop computer, GPS navigator, briefcase... ..you name it. He called the
police and since there were no signs of his car being broken into, the police told him he had been a victim of the latest robbery tactic -- there is a device that robbers are using now to clone your security code when you lock your doors on your car using your key-chain locking device..

They sit a distance away and watch for their next victim. They know you are going inside of the store, restaurant, or bathroom and that they now have a few minutes to steal and run. The police officer said to manually lock your car door-by hitting the lock button inside the car -- that way if there is someone sitting in a parking lot watching for their next victim, it will not be you.

When you hit the lock button on your car upon exiting, it does not send the security code, but if you walk away and use the door lock on your key chain, it sends the code through the airwaves where it can be instantly stolen.
This is very real.

Be wisely aware of what you just read and please pass this note on. Look how many times we all lock our doors with our remote just to be sure we remembered to lock them -- and bingo, someone has our code....and whatever was in our car.

The theives seem to always be one step ahead.
Here there has been a problem with people putting card readers on BANK ATMs and getting your info and wiping out your accounts.

I AM NOT SAYING THERE SHOULD BE CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR STUPIDITY,
BUT, WHY DON'T WE JUST TAKE THE SAFETY LABELS OFF OF EVERYTHING
AND LET THE PROBLEM SOLVE ITSELF?"

Re: How to Lock Your Car


Thanks for the heads up there guys. I use my key fob everytime. That is the best way for me to know that the keys are not in the vehicle.Looks like I am going to have to find a new way.

I would say that it would be the same when unlocking.They could get it that way and follow you to your next stop.

Goes to show that all you can do is keep an honest man honest. emoticon

Re: How to Lock Your Car


another thing I heard about was that thieves steal your tom tom or garmin GPS and your garage door opener from mall parking lots. They know you will be there for a while so they hit "home" on the GPS go there use the door opener to get in and rob ya.

MAN I HATE THIEVES

Re: How to Lock Your Car


I have always locked mine with the door lock and seldom if ever use the keychain lock. Good information for sure.
