Those little cartoons may cost you a bundle.

Those little cartoons may cost you a bundle.

Listen up. There is a new way besides face book and other internet socials that we are giving up to much information to those who want to take advantage of us.

You know those little carton figures that people buy and stick on the rear windows of their cars that depict all the members of their family including their pets.

The figures usually are characters that are dressed in some particular way or might have a certain expression or be a certain size and they usually represent not only who is in your family but what they like to do as well.

They are basically a story of what your family is doing.

I personally like to see the little figures and what each one is wearing or doing. It’s something to do while waiting for traffic to move.

But, now criminals also are taking notice of these stickers and they are learning lots of information about you. Information that may unfortunately lead to a car jacking, you being robbed or a break in at your home.

They learn a lot of information that they no longer have to guess at and stuff that helps them determine what is going on either with your car or your home.

Pictures of kids in sports or cheerleading tell them you will be at many practices and games. Pictures of a man in a suit or a uniform tell them that dad might not be home a lot either. Pictures of little dogs, cats or hamsters tell them you don’t have a bid dog that likes to bit criminals. Depending on the time and day they can usually tell who is using that vehicle, for what purpose and probably guess where it’s going next.

Those little figures are actually cool and I like them, but unfortunately its time to pull them off thanks to some criminals that want to use them to their advantage.

It’s a shame. I know, we could all buy little guns to put in each figures hands! That might work!
