New car theft scam

Just been out with some friends who told me that their Golf GTi was stolen after two guys came round to test drive it as it was up for sale.

They wanted to confirm that both keys were present and were handling both keys and checking them over, sadly at the same time they were also swapping one of the keys over with another Golf key, and the next morning the car was gone.

They later noticed that one of the keys was identical, but was more worn than the original ones.

Cops said it was new one on them, this was in south London, Catford way.

Moral of the story is to check the keys still lock the car once you get them back from a test drive.... spreading the word...!
