Sharing: How to Lock Your Car and Why?????

 How to Lock Your Car and Why ?????

I locked my car. As I walked away I heard my car door unlock. I went
back and locked my car again three times. Each time, as soon as I
started to walk away, I would hear it unlock again!! Naturally alarmed, I looked around
and there were two guys sitting in a car in the fire lane next to the store.
They were obviously watching me intently, and there was no doubt they
were somehow involved in this very weird situation. I quickly chucked
the errand I was on, jumped in my car and sped away. I went straight t
o the police station, told them what had happened, and found out I was
part of a new, and very successful, scheme being used to gain entry into
cars. Two weeks later, my friend's son had a similar happening...

While travelling, my friend's son stopped at a roadside rest to use the
bathroom.. When he came out to his car less than 4-5 minutes later, someone
had gotten into his car and stolen his cell phone, laptop computer, GPS
navigator, briefcase... name it. He called the police and since there
were no signs of his car being broken into, the police told him he had
been a victim of the latest robbery tactic -- 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 of the store, restaurant, or bathroom and that they now
have a few minutes to steal and run. The police officer said 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 ca r 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 instantly stolen.
This is very real.

Be wisely aware of what you just read and please pass this note on.
Look how many times we all lock our doors with our remote just to be
sure we remembered to lock them -- and bingo, someone has our code and whatever
was in our car.

Please share with everyone you know!!
