There is a new number plate hijacking trend brewing around. These hijackers will stalk you to a parking lot or mall, after parking your vehicle; they remove your number plate and wait for you to drive off. They then follow you and overtake you displaying your number plate at their window as if you had lost it and want to give it back to you. Shocked that your number has fallen off your car, you bring your vehicle to a halt to get it from them. This is all they want you to do and by the time you realized what happened it is too late, your car was hi-jacked or you could have been raped or killed.

Please don’t just stop for anything; a number plate is valueless compared to your life. Think what is happening before you react to it. Criminals are clever and cunning but are ruthless in getting what they want…
