Thieves and robbers, always come up with new ways to steal things. We think we’ve found a way to protect our most prized possessions. But that’s never ending cycle.
Even though they might not be worth as much as they used to be, coins are still considered a fortuitous commodity. After all, we’ve all heard of a lucky dime or pennies from heaven.
One of the latest tricks employed by society’s underlings is so devious it’s almost genius, and all it takes is a penny, your car door, and a blind eye. You’re going to want to see this.
As you get in your car in the morning, you might want to start checking the passenger side door for something strange.
Car thieves have recently come up with a devious new way to steal your vehicle.
It involves putting a penny or another coin in the car door handle just like this
Just by doing this, a thief may be able to gain access to everything inside your car, or maybe even take the car itself if they’re clever enough.
Probably you wouldn’t notice it on the passenger side or one of the rear doors, but when you go to lock your car, the coin will keep that door from locking properly, leaving the door open for thieves.
The robber wouldn’t even have to follow you anywhere. They could just wait until you come home from work, blissfully unaware that the coin is still lodged in the car door, and steal your car when you go inside.The thief simply enters your vehicle, steals whatever they want and even steal your vehicle!
Practically very few people have anything to be concerned about. Mechanics say this won’t work on most car models.
Of course, if you’ve noticed the coin, obviously you can remove it and ensure the trick doesn’t work. However, the thief might not notice the coin has been removed — and the ensuing confrontation might not be how you would have hoped to have been spending your day.
So if on the remote chance that you do find a coin in your door, we would advise you to be aware of your surroundings, especially if anyone is following you. If in doubt, contact store security and take a picture of the car door. And of course, if you feel you’re being followed, contact police immediately.
As always, we report stories like this to prepare people for what could happen when they least expect it. Granted, some would argue these stories empower criminals or give them ideas, but at the same time, I’d rather have people know what’s lurking out there so they can look for it, than have them get robbed unexpectedly or get carjacked at gunpoint.
You have to hand it to these people… that’s actually pretty clever. But now that people are spreading the word, this won’t work for much longer.
