|Click on the picture so you can read it:
As you can see, there is another way of thieves stealing bikes from your property. This is simply done by pretending to have interest, then going to the property to steal the bikes.
The best way to defeat this (without me giving away anything to these thieves) is by doing the following:
-Do not let someone go to your address to see the bike.
-Arrange a meeting time somewhere away from your home address (or anyone else's)
-Take someone with you (or a couple of people. The more the safer) and meet in a public place filled with members of the public, i.e town centre.
-Best place to meet if you live in a town or city is outside a police station for obvious reasons. And if you're legit, you have nothing to worry about. Even explain to the police why you are doing it.
This applies to everybody around the world too. Remember, this is a thieves other solution on getting bikes and can be used by any thief around the world.
If you have any tips, fell free to mention them too.
Hope you all take note of this!!
