Car Thieves

Hi everyone!
As much as I love technology it can sure make me nuts sometimes! I had written a great letter to you all, full of incredible steals and deals and even after saving it, it has vanished from off the face of the earth. I'll try to recreate what little I can remember....
Seems that car thieves have found yet 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 # from the label on the dash, go to
the local car dealership and request a duplicate key based on the VIN #. A
friend of mine called Chrysler Dodge and pretended she had lost her keys.
They told her to just bring in the VIN #, and they would cut me one on the spot, and she could order the keyless device if she 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 tape (electrical tape, duct tape or medical tape) across the VIN Metal Label located on the dash board. 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.
If you've wanted to host a dinner party but didn't even have a table, now you can get one at just the right price....FREE! Call Tamara Ogg, who is giving away a nice oak table with 4 chairs. Her number is 760-918-9795.
AND if you don't have any pots to cook your guests a nice dinner, you can get those for FREE too! Call Rosanne Barlow, who is giving away a nice 9 piece set of used pots and pans. Her number is 760-603-9366.
Have a wonderful day!
