Letter: Warning out to people that have a keyless car

Date published: 10 August 2018

Dear Editor,

Could you please put a warning out to people that have a keyless car?

I'm sure you know they are being stolen within a minute or two with some kind of machine to scan your walls to your house.

Mine, a 4x4 Toyota Landcruiser was stolen on the 14 July.

Someone I know has a car the same as mine and spoke to Toyota RRG, Rochdale who said four had been stolen the same week around this area. 

A brand new one was stolen from Shaw two days before mine and this is all I am seeing stolen cars on the social media sites. 

People can buy faraday pouches, I got two for £6.00.

I used them on my courtesy car, it stops the signal for the key fob being picked up by the machines the car thieves are using.

I think if the people of Rochdale buy these and protect their valuable cars the thieves will move on.
