5 car Stickers that Criminals use Against You!

They seem innocent enough, but many of these bumper stickers say way too much about you and your family.

Ohio SAR point out some of the information you are giving away without noticing with these three stickers.

They clearly think about leaving the house alone and home invasions. I can tell you that from my perspective there are other serious crimes you should be careful of as well, in particular fraud and kidnapping. It would be very easy to kidnap Bill for example “Hey Billy. Your mommy, Tammy, she had a car accident and asked me to pick you up. I’m an army pal of you dad, John”. Simple as that. It is very easy to trick through the phone not only children but adults as well if you know some of the first names of the family members. “Hello, I’m calling from XYZ, your husband John contacted us because of the slow wifi problem you’ve been having. I need you to change these numbers from your end so as to optimize your connection”.

The stick family decals along with the rest of the stickers, the way you dress and the car you drive, give any bystander with a good eye a pretty accurate idea of your socioeconomic background. I know of several people that have been kidnaped alone by the car they were driving and even the clothes they were wearing.

A private school sticker? That’s anywhere from $10,000 -$20,000 bucks tuition or more depending on your State, therefore that’s probably how much disposable income you can expect to come up with if they grab your son. You don’t have the money you say? OK pal, you’ve got an hour to sell that fancy new BMW of yours then or we kill the kid.

Huh... so you own a lot of guns then?
The typical gun decal in your car is a dead giveaway too. NRA stickers, Colt, Glock, etc, they all scream gun person. It would be logical for a criminal to check out a busy parking lot for such stickers and break into the car to see if he can get himself a nice new gun. I know of a member at Glocktalk forum that had his Glock 17 stolen from his vehicle. Cops told him that he might want to remove his NRA sticker from his car.

Any organized gang looking to procure some hardware simply has to follow you home and either force you into your house at gunpoint or wait until you all leave to break in. If they see some good security around the house maybe just wait until mom gets back home with the kids from school while you’re at the office.

Rental car Stickers and Barcodes.

Another problematic sticker. Maybe you didn’t even notice that your rental has a company sticker somewhere but criminals sure do. A rental car means business travel or tourist. Its worth breaking into and maybe stealing a suitcase with electronics, cash or jewellery.

Bumper stickers are generally bad news all the way around. There have been reports of government agencies and law enforcement profiling motorists based on their bumper stickers. (Anecdotal report: I have heard stories of a guy with a 'Bad cop! No doughnut' bumper sticker who wondered why he was always getting pulled over.)

It's best to employ the gray man approach with vehicles too. Drive something that blends in with the rest of the population -- nothing too fancy and no super-memorable stickers. As an added bonus, more mainstream vehicles tend to be less expensive to buy and maintain, which leaves more money for other things and are easier to sell if you need to get rid of them in a hurry.
