- 💡 Having a vehicle with keyless entry and push-button start does not guarantee protection against theft.
- 💡 Cars with push-button start and radio frequency key fobs are more susceptible to theft by organized crime.
- 💡 Thieves use devices that can pick up radio frequency signals from key fobs from a distance of up to 300 feet.
- 💡 Thieves decode and copy the fob signal onto a blank fob, allowing them to access and start the car.
- 💡 Stolen cars are often quickly transported overseas in shipping containers.
- 💡 Installing security cameras may not deter professional car thieves who wear disguises and use techniques to avoid detection.
- 💡 Using a Faraday pouch (a type of key fob protection pouch) can block the radio frequency signals emitted by the fob, providing an effective way to prevent theft.
- 💡 Research different Faraday pouch options on Amazon, read reviews, and compare prices before making a purchase.
- 💡 The recommended Faraday pouch is called the Wisdom Pro RFID Key Fob Protector (item number WP4694).
- 💡 The narrator's stolen truck was found in a shipping container on the docks in Lake Ontario before being loaded onto a ship, thanks to an ongoing police investigation.
