RE: [DML] Re: Stolen in Seattle


This is just more security through obscurity.  I seriously doubt any
professional car thief is lurking on a relatively obscure Yahoo group just
waiting for bits of information on how to break into and steal a De Lorean.
If a car thief wants the car they will get it no matter what.

The more information like this is shared among the group the better off
everyone is to prevent this from happening to them, or being scammed during
a new purchase.  For example, if people knew how easy it was to replace the
VIN tags they may look more closely at the tags for signs of tampering
during a potential purchase.

Lastly, posting HOW to do something is not illegal or wrong; the act of
following through is.  This applies to anything and not just our cars.  Any
person following this "recipe" to commit a crime is the guilty party, not
the person discussing how it can be done so everyone can be better educated
to protect themselves, and their car.

It is irresponsable for you or anyone to post in such detail how to
commit an illegal act. What you are saying to do is not as much
speculation as it is a recipe to commit a crime. We do not know all
the circumstances of this alleged crime and to spread rumors about it
is of no benefit to anyone. This could be a case of someone with a key
"borrowing" the car or maybe it was repossesed. Time will tell but for
you to explain in detail how vulnurable the identity of an individual
car is is not in anyone's best interests. My origional post was
bounced as it was deemed too personal a response. As far as I am
concerned the moderator should have bounced cbl1302's post. The
ultimate protection is insurance. If a thief is determined there is
little an owner can do.
