Riding in tandem motorcycle riders were the latest modus operandi (MO) that carjackers have used to victimize private vehicle owners particularly in the metro. Other reported operations includes the deliberate car bumping that forces you to stop and get-off your car only to find out that a loaded gun will soon be pointed at your face.
But a recent carjacking MO has been reported targeting mostly unaccompanied female drivers. This is where a group of people brings out a rather unfamiliar plot that will somehow force you to go out from the driver’s seat, eventually giving a window of opportunity for this syndicate to instantaneously run with your vehicle.
The assailants will pose themselves as ordinary unrelated individuals, men and women just passing by where you parked your vehicle. One of them will to try to communicate with you, imposing that a key was ran over by your car pointing to the blind side of your vehicle. Unaware of their evil plan, you will then step out and try to check what was going on. By then the rest of the group will try to enter your vehicle and immediately run away.
This is a warning to our female motorists who frequently drive alone in the metro. Though most of the carjacking incidents happened around Pasig city, it is still pertinent that we take the necessary precautions against this life- threatening situation where ever we are.
Sadly, our latest FB netizen wasn’t able to capture a good photo of the criminals. The good thing though is that she was able to deter the incident before it happened.
