Subject: Locking car with keys remotely
Date: Thu, 20 Nov 2008 09:17:04 -0500
I locked my car --- as I walked away I heard my car door unlock I went
back and locked my car again three times. I looked around and there were
two guys sitting in a car in the fire lane next to the store. When I looked straight at them they did not unlock my car again.
How to lock your car safely: While traveling my son stopped at a roadside park. He came out to his car less than 4-5 minutes later and found someone had gotten into his car, and stolen his cell phone, laptop computer, GPS navigator, briefcase and you name it. He called the police, the police told him that since there were no signs of his car being broken into, that there is a device that robbers are now using 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 have a few
minutes to steal and run. The police officer said to be sure 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 stolen, something totally unknown to us.
Please, be aware of this and please pass this note on, look how many times we all lock our doors with our keys, just to be sure we remembered to lock them, and bingo someone have our code, and whatever was in the
car can be gone.
Keep safe everyone
