    I don't know what I would do without a car. I have a severe case of motion sickness and therefore cannot use public transit. I don't make enough money to take taxis everywhere I need to go. I think I would really feel trapped and dependent on others without my own car.

    Diva, I'm sorry that happened to you and your family. It isn't so much what they took because things can be replaced, but how it leaves you feeling violated. :mad:

    Sucks so bad when something like this happens, hope you get it sorted without too much fuss. As for protecting stuff no way is fool proof, if these scumbags want something they usually find away of getting it...

    Lol, instead of punishing them a new country will be developing.

    Have you try Uber? It's cheaper than texi. You can download the Uber app in the google play store.

    Yup, I've got it sorted.
    I've made the police report, ban the phone's sim card, apply for insurance and got the door fixed. Only need to buy back a new phone and glasses for my mother.

    There are ways to get them..

    1. Imo, Is to hire a personal detective and take those thieves to court. If they are rich and is found guilty, they'll pay for the fee, damages and etc..

    2. Get a gangster to beat them up. But Imo, this is not a good idea, just thought to mention it as another option.

    For now I think it's unessaesary to hunt them. But if they were to come back and do it again then maybe I'll do something about it.

    For the protection of the vehicle. I think it would be better to install GPS to the car just incase.

    I have had a car broken into back about 1983.
    I had a nice stereo in it and a nice set of oak, octagon shaped nunchukus I bought for $3 at a rummage sale.
    All they wanted were the nunchukus.
    I had them hanging from the rear view mirror.

    One thing you can do would be to install a tracking chip into anything of value in your car. Then if and when they steal it you would be able to track it and them down.
    Also install an extra loud security alarm. One that when it sounds off it screams the phrase POLICE!!POLICE!! Thieves! Thieves!

    Yea, sorry to hear this news. Thieves know that your car is likely the 2nd or 3rd most costly/prized possession and that they often have things in them. That's why I was really pissed off to read how the self-help crooks in government were passing laws making it a crime to have a hidden compartment, like ya know for hiding drugs and guns. Never mind if they are legal drugs/guns/tools/laptops/purses/wallets. In their mind it's fuck you people. This is our opportunity to steal your entire care and toss ya in jail, plus fine you, give a criminal record, blaw...blaw....blaw.

    There's a lot of people out of work. Theft is the first recourse for many people. I know people that leave the car unlocked and the windows down just so that any thieves can rummage without wrecking the car.
