    Hi All.
    Please share this information with your family, friends and clients.
    VIN NUMBER- WARNING!
    So simple, I would have NEVER thought about someone doing that!!!!
    Here is INFO worth the price of your car.... WHAT WILL the car thieves
    THINK OF NEXT?
    The car thieves peer through the windshield of your car or vehicle,
    Write down the VINnumberfrom the label on the dashor from the licence disk, go to the local car
    Dealership and request a duplicate key based on the VIN number.
    I didn't believe this e-mail, so I called Chrysler-Dodge, GM & Ford and
    Pretended I had lost my keys.
    They told me to just bring in the VINnumber, and they would cut me one on
    The spot, and I could order the keyless device if I wanted.
    The Car Dealer's Parts Department will make a duplicate key from the VIN
    number, and collect payment from the thief who will return to your vehicle.
    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 dark tape
    (electrical tape, duct tape or medical tape) across the VIN Number Metal
    Label located on the dashboardor licence disk.
    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.
    I urge you to forward this to your friends before some other car thief
    steals another car or truck.

    PASS THIS INFO ON TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS NOW!!!!!

    It not really that simple.
    Yes the can order the key for you, They do not cut it themselves.
    And the key goes with the remote, or key fob. BMW for example get the new key imported.

    There are a lot of checks and balances in place before you can get the key.

    Know this idea was used in Gone in 60 seconds.
