And the salvation of the swallows from the clutches of homegrown thieves who does not sleep well the glory of the hero Nicolas Cage in the movie "Gone in 60 Seconds", lies on your fragile shoulders.
"I drove the car - what to do? !!"
This almost classical in its formulationthe question is given every 10 seconds one person in the world. A revenue-theft business is more than 21 billion dollars a year. Amazing stats! You can continue to bring these facts, one other interesting. But if statistics for your machine - a kind of inanimate unit of theft, it is for you - the stolen property. And with the disappearance of her need to do something. So, breathe deeply - you stole a car!
Hijacking hijacking discord
You, as the victim, should not be tooI wonder what type of car thefts refers your case. But it was on to some of the existing five types of car theft, he relates, depends heavily on the fate of your machine:
- Auto "on the bodies."
Or rather, for parts. Surprisingly, it is the rarest kind of theft. Rather, it is a convenient excuse for the police, who are fed up to look for your car. And easier for you to arrange a demonstration narrative mythical statistics. Do not fall: rare hijacker will communicate with alarms and other anti-theft devices in order to start up the machine on the workpiece.
- Hum. Fire!
This type of theft has become a favorite fornumerous intermediary firms that sell cars from the manufacturer. The scheme is simple enough. At registration documents of the company employees get your home address and made an impression of the key. Once your car is delivered to the address of your residence, its gone. And not just anywhere, but the new buyer with a blank document. It is involved in the hijacking dealership employee. And well, if the car was found quickly; and if not - you can forget about their new thing. To prove conspiracy in this case is very difficult. However, this scheme works for about one week after the acquisition of cars you.
- Dangerous Tour.
This term is called theft, perfectnewcomers. Rejoinder: "Come in large numbers!" Is better omitted. If your car was stolen visiting guest performers, you will find it very difficult. Fake documents from nimble fellows are always at hand, and traffic police employees do not differ holiness. They take a bribe, and they do not hurt for the power. And swallow your already crossed the border state ownership. This is at best. At worst, the hijackers can take on your car armed raid. And it just destroy as unnecessary evidence.
- Auto or purse?
Often the car is stolen for ransom, and in thiscase, you have a chance to regain the favorite means of transportation. However, you need to accept the fact that the pay you will still have the default. Private detective, to find that the zeal of the valiant police officers is poor or by bandits.
What if the car was stolen from the parking lot or in a locked garage? From the correctness of your actions will depend on whether the machine will return to its legitimate owner, and how soon it will happen.
In hot pursuit"
Once you have found a place in the parking lot,which should be your car, empty, - dial 02. The figures familiar to us from childhood, can bring real help in this situation. However, if the manager does not begin to refer to the lack of available vehicles instead of forward to the challenge outfit. Just do not need to immediately bump into tears. Demand, you are eligible, your conversation is being recorded, and, as a conscientious taxpayer, you can count on the fact that your call is not entitled to disregard.
But keep in mind, announce your call socalled "interception" or not depends on how much time has passed since the theft. If you left the car in the parking lot at night, and missed it only in the morning, "intercept" is nothing. Most likely, the hijackers hid your car in a safe place, and on the road it can be seen only when the "passion" to search for the dust settles. If, however, your machine is brought to you the signs, or you yourself periodically check on the spot whether or not your car, it may be easier to find and set the exact time when the theft was committed.
The next thing you need to take care - ita written statement to the police. And try to calm down, gather your thoughts and remember all the possible details from you seemingly minor detail and finishing own suspicions. Emotions will not help here, but discipline will be exactly what you expect from criminals least. In dialogue with the representatives of law enforcement agencies try to avoid the imperative mood. How would you not want to fire up and "put pressure", do not do it.
It may happen that the operative workerIt will ask you for a while to pick up an application and give him the opportunity to test the hijackers through their own channels. In no event should not refuse! On level ground, he is not to offer you. And if you have heard this sentence, it means that the operative has what is called a trace. And do not neglect his professional flair. It may be that your beauty will return in a few hours. A statement you write, if necessary. You remember that your call in 02 was recorded on film.
Recall that the so-called active searchyour car maintained for 2 months, and then the case is suspended and transformed into another unsolved crime. Although the orientation of your car is at all employees of the patrol service, do not need to rely on their quickness and wait for 2 months, continue to operate!
My relatives - my wealth
Do not relax, leaving the application to the police. Your car is necessary first of all to you the most, and then you need to move to action. You can take a sample of the activity of the presidential candidates during the election campaign. Print orientation describing the distinctive features of your machine. The more details, the better. Everything from scratch on the bumper and ending with the engine number, described with great care in A4 format. For efficient searches must be not less than one thousand copies. Distribute leaflets girlfriends, relatives, colleagues. Use the fact that you sympathize with, yet you have the opportunity. Let handed out to passers-by, are entered into the nearby police station, pasting on poles and bus stops. Who knows, maybe you'll get lucky.
Look for fire ...
Another recommendation from the category of illogical, on theseemingly actions. But you - a woman, you can be everything. Immediately after the theft look among his acquaintances or friends of your friends fire. And along with it, inspect the nearby garages. Do firefighters have the right to inspect suspicious garages. Even the sanction on private property they do not need to search. But to do it all worth it only if you suspect that a stolen car (in the orientation of a police officer, for instance), is in your same area.
Acquire the laurels of Pinkerton
Search cars in the home - a thing quitecomplex. You can certainly rely on the quickness of police, but it is best to attempt and look for clues. Accompanied men go around hot spots located next to the parking lot or garage where the car was stolen.

You every detail is important. The slightest detail. It can bring you to your car.
You may also want to bypass the next car markets. If your machine decided to sell because of the hype you arranged to do so criminals can only through the car market. But in any case, do not come to the car, if you find it. Call the police outfit. No car is not worth your health and safety.
The more people know about your loss, thebetter. You can advertise with the description of your car will take on local TV or radio. Since showing your phone number. By the way, what you do not calm down and continue to search for stolen car may make criminals abandon the original plans and call you with a proposal to buy back your car. For a certain percentage of the cost. Most importantly, time to understand what you call it, the hijackers because the direct question: "Do you want to redeem your car?" You will not hear from any professional. A layman would police caught without your efforts.

It has become too hot commodity. And buy it now will be solved only blind, deaf, dumb sailor long voyage. All your actions are correct, and every effort has led to the fact that criminals have decided, though not free of charge, return the car the legitimate owner.

Not necessarily that you something to happen, but it is better to insure maximum. Alone, you can go only to the first meeting, all further negotiations should take place in the presence of someone who can protect you.

The response to any threat should be the completion of the negotiations. Life is more expensive. If you insure the car, the insurance will cover all. To do this, the police have to take the help that upon loss of your vehicle a criminal case, and submit it to the insurance company. In that case, if your machine is not found, the company will be obliged to compensate the provisions for the insurance sum.
Suppose you were able to agree. You also offered to buy your car. It's a shame, do not argue, though redemption and can not be compared with the actual value of the car. Pay once for belonging to a thing you do not want anyone. And you find yourself faced with a choice to pay or donate criminals. The second option is much more dangerous than it might seem at first glance. In order to prove the guilt of the hijackers, the valiant police officers should come in time for your call at the moment of transmission machines. And criminals, and it is a well known fact, for the "deals" are trying to choose a weekend or holiday. So, the chance of getting real help from the police and you have little, you may have to pay.
