Whenever possible position yourself close to the controls. be ready to press
the alarm and next landing buttons.
If you are forced in to a car, or the driver is not stopping to let you out
then it is essential to force a crash. It may sound too extreme but it
is the response recommended by the experts. Do it before he gets up to speed
and try to crash in to a parked car. Your life is likely to be at stake!!
Car Theft Scheme.
Here's what they do: You return to your car left in a car park,unlock
your car and get inside, start the engine and shift into REVERSE and
when you look into the rear view mirror to back out of your parking
space you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear
So, you either switch off the car or leave the engine running and jump
out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is
obstructing your view...
When you reach the back of the car that is when the hi-jackers appear
out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off!
The door was unlocked, your keys were in the ignition, maybe the engine
was running, (ladies would have probably left their handbag, with their
purse, mobile phone etc; in the car) and they practically mow you down
as they speed off in your car.
BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED!!!
Should this happen to you, just drive away and remove the piece of paper
that is stuck to your window later....and be thankful that you read this.
If you think it appropriate, tell your friends and
A purse contains all identification, and you certainly do NOT want
anyone getting your home address. They already have your keys!
I say look to see if there is anything on your car first then you can
take it off before u even get in.. Margaretta P.
Credit Cards Security:
If your cards are stolen you
must be quick off the mark in contacting your bank or the credit card company.
Keep the numbers stored on your mobile. It could save you a lot of time,
trouble, and money.
If you feel that the person or people behind you in the queue are too close
and may be a threat, then cancel the transaction and move away. Do not wait
for a situation to develop. Better safe than sorry.
You should never divulge passwords over the Internet or a telephone. If you have
lost yours then it is normal to be given a new one. If you feel that it may have been compromised get a new one.
Do not have your first name in the phone book, this is particularly important
Secure Your home:
Always change the locks on the door if you are moving in to a new home.
Outside lights will help deter a would-be burglar.
Over 95% of burglaries take place in homes where there are no home security systems or burglar alarms fitted. But having a proper home security setup isn't just about what's in place when you're away from home. Another alarming statistic is that over 40% of burglaries occur when the occupants are at home.
Considering moving in to a new neighborhood? Take a walk in the area and take note of how many ground floor flats and dwelling have installed grills - As a long time security professional I always look for things like that. A run down area is not always the most crime targeted. Richard Beiden Atlanta Georgia
