Before heading out somewhere in your car, you’re going to need to check the doors of your vehicle very, very carefully. Word is that a new scam is on the rise that allows thieves to break into your car rather easily.
The trick is pretty old up their sleeves but one that can be easily missed. You should watch for your car doors (all four) for a coin shoved into the gap like this.
This disengages the central locking system of your car causing it to malfunction, unbeknownst to you. So this way when you park your car for good at night and are in a habit of locking it with the help of your car key, it will remain unlocked.
This allows the robbers plenty of time to get in your vehicle overnight and steal whatever valuable possessions you have, or the car itself with the help of a master key (if you have the old model that is).
Before getting in and out of your car, please do check all the doors. Be safe and spread the message guys!
