A LIL security info

By Justa6

A little security information for everyone!!!

Check your car--


A friend sent me this email and I am sending it on to my friends: Wednesday, I approached my truck from the passenger side to place my computer bag 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 in your home ."

He says 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 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, daily if you are
in a shopping center or other parking area.

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

Below is picture of what the hole looks like.
