    That is a very old one, even over here another one is that someone makes a sign to stop you because there is something wrong with one of your tyres...

    Might well be a hoax, but if I were a carjacker, then I'd certainly give this a try...

    So if you do go to leave a car park and see a bit of paper stuck under your wiper, just leave it there... won't do any harm...

    Doing what I do for a living you'd be suprised how many stolen cars there are that have gone with the keys in the ignition. I can't say that this story has ever arisen though but no doubt it would work. We have had some of the "person laid out in the road" scams where drivers have stopped to see if they're OK and someone's jumped in their motor and gone!

    Best advice is never leave your keys in the ignition when you're not with your car (it's an offence anyway if there's no one with a license with the car) and never leave your keys in view at home or near the letterbox. Fishing rods are extrememly useful.
