Here is INFO worth the
price of your car….
WHAT WILL the car thieves THINK OF
The car thieves peer through the
windshield of your car or vehicle,write down the VIN #
from the label on the dash, go to the local car
dealership and request a duplicate key based on the VIN
I didn't believe this e-mail, so I called
Chrysler-Dodge and pretended I had lost my keys. They
told me to just bring in the VIN #, and they would cut me one on the
spot, and I could order the keyless device if I wanted.
The Car Dealer's Parts Department will make a
duplicate key from the VIN #, and collect payment from the thief who
will return to your car.
He doesn't have to break in, do any
damage to the vehicle, or draw attention to himself. All he has to
do is walk up to your car, insert the key and off he goes to a local
chop shop with your vehicle.
You don't believe it?
It IS that
EASY.To avoid this from happening to you, simply put some dark
tape (electrical tape, duct tape or medical tape)
across the VIN Number Metal Label located on the
By law, you cannot remove the VIN,
but you CAN cover it so it can't be viewed through the
windshield by a car thief.
I urge you to
forward this to your friends before some other car thief steals
another car or truck.
I slipped a 3×5 card over my VIN
NUMBER. PASS THIS INFORMATION ON TO ALL YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
THEY WILL THANK YOU FOR IT.
