Locking your Car (Snopes confirmed. )

Look at what the enemy has come up with now.

"I locked my car, and as I walked away, I heard my car door unlock. I

went back and locked my car again...three times. I looked around,

and there were two guys sitting in a car in the fire lane next to the store.

When I looked straight at them, they did not unlock my car again.

How to lock your car safely

While traveling, my son stopped at a roadside park. He came out to

his car less than 4-5 minutes later and found someone had gotten into

the car, and had stolen his cell phone, laptop computer, GPS navigator name it. He called the police, and since there

were no signs of his car being broken into... the police told him that

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 the store, restaurant, or bathroom, and have a few minutes to

steal and run.

The police officer said be sure to

manually lock your car door-by hitting the lock button inside the

car as you exit your vehicle, 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

inside your car upon 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 stolen. Something

totally new to us...and real. Be aware of this, and please pass this

note on. Look how many times we all lock our doors with our keys...just to be sure we

remembered to lock them. And bingo....someone has our code...and

whatever was in the car will be gone!"
