New Method Being Used by Carjackers-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

A warning that carjackers are using a new ploy.
They are putting what appear to be advertisements on your back window.
When you get out of the car to get the advertisement out of the way, the carjacker hops into your car and drives it away because you presumably either left your keys in the car while you got out or left the engine running.

The Truth:

This could happen and in the mind of someone whose fears prompted them to start this eRumor it has happened, but we’ve had no reports of any actual incidents of this kind and neither have any of the law enforcement agencies we’ve checked with.
