View Full Version : New way to rob you.

A bud sent me this thought I'd pass it on.

They have a new way to rob you now !

A friend sent me this email and I am sending it to my friends.

Wednesday, I approached my truck from the passenger side to place my
computer bag (aka my man purse) in the front passenger seat.

As I reached to open the door I noticed there was a hole right under my
door handle.

My first thought was, "someone has shot my truck !"

I began to think about it and inspect it a little closer and the "light" slowly
began to come on.

I phoned my friend who owns a body shop and asked if he had any vehicles
with damage to the doors that looked like a bullet hole.

"Yes, I see it all the time. Thieves have a punch and place it right under the
door handle, knock a hole through, reach in and unlock it, just as if they
have a key. No alarms, broken glass, or anything.

I then placed a call to my insurance agent and explained it to him. I was
puzzled that they left my GPS and all other belongings. Here is where it gets
scary !

"Oh no, he said, they want the break-in to be so subtle that you don't even
realize it. They look at your GPS to see where "home" is. Now, they know what
you drive, go to your home, and if your vehicle isn't there they assume you
aren't and break into your home."

He said they will even leave a purse or wallet and only take one or two credit
cards. By the time you realize there has been a theft, they may have already had
a couple of days or more to use them.

(I didn't realize my situation for two full days!)

They even give you the courtesy of re-locking your doors for you.

Periodically, walk around your car, especially after you park in a in a shopping
center or other large parking area.

Report thefts immediately....your bank w/missing check numbers, your credit
card agencies, police, and insurance companies, etc.

gotta call bulshit on the whole "No Alarms" thing, as nearly all alarms are triggered by opening the door, and bumps to the vehicle itself (punching a hole through a metal door is sure as hell gonna set it off), most vehicle`s have sensors inside too so any motion detected inside the vehicle whilst the alarm is on will also trigger it.
