Beware Of How To Lock Your Car Safely

Be aware with today's high tech gadgets especially to those of you who owned a car who has a "key less" door opener/close remote control...!

Below is a copy of a letter that was sent to me from one of my friends through e-mail. I decided to post the letter to let all my friends, co-bloggers and readers to be aware of your sorroundings. This is a true story and please, spread this message to everyone!

Read this story:

Look at what the enemy has come up with now. Snopes approved. I locked my car, and 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 the car, and had 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 that 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 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 as you exit your vehicle, 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 inside 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 new to us...and real. 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 has our code...and whatever was in the car will be gone!

Keep safe everyone!
