It seems that car thieves have found another way to steal your car or truck
without any effort at all. The car thieves peer through the windshield of your
car or truck, write down the VIN number from the label on the dash, go to
the local car dealership and request a duplicate key based on the VIN number.

The car dealer's parts dept will make a duplicate key from the VIN number 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 to 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 tape (electrical tape,
duct tape or medical tape) across the VIN label located on the dash board.
By law, you cannot remove the VIN number, 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.
QUOTE Thanks
