New cars at risk of theft...
A new report by the consumer group Which? has said that four of the five best selling cars in the UK are among the many models that can be stolen without the thief physically stealing your keys.
They include the best-selling Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Golf, Nissan Qashqai and the Ford Focus. Thieves use a method called "relay attack" to increase the signal from your vehicle's key fooling the car to thinking the key is close by. The third most popular UK car the Vauxhall Corsa cannot be stolen using the relay attack method because it isn't available with keyless entry and start.
We ask the question how easy will it be to convince your insurance company you never left the keys in your car's ignition and thereby, potentially having a claim refused or reduced?
By having CCTV installed at your home or business, you will have a greater chance of demonstrating to your insurance company and police what really happened and thereby removing some of the additional stress of negotiating your claim.
