My dad was telling me and my mom about this recently, Apparently what the thieves are doing now is they will put a piece of paper on your back windshield. When you get out to remove it they jump in your car and take off with it. Has anyone else heard of this one yet? I'm not sure if its true or not but i can see people using this as a way to steal a car.

Haven't heard yet,but sounds it is true and possible.It is an instinct for me specially in a public places that when I get out of my car to check something,I gonna make sure that my engine was turned off and the key was in my hand.If company's have their own continuous improvement program to remain their competitiveness, I guess those people has also their new techniques which is not yet known to many so that their bad business continuous.Thanks for sharing I can consider this as a tip for my day to day routine.

Yeah it definitely sounds like something someone would try and if they do it to a woman they could get her purse and wallet and everything. Its amazing the things someone will do just to steal a car.

Sounds like something someone somewhere might try. If someone puts a paper on my windshield while im in the car i'm pretty likely to tell them to bug off. If i do get out of my car to get it, I'll make sure to close the door and lock it! or have the keys in my hand.

Yeah it could be true, another thing I've heard is where vendors pretend to sell perfumes and they would try to give you a free smell sample but actually its not perfume. Youll get knocked out by the scent and they can do whatever they want from you. This can happen in remote places like gas stations. So be careful y'all.
