… Otherwise, we will break the car
Once you find a plastic file with a note under the brush on the windshield. Summary: if you want the car to remain safe and sound, pay 500 rubles. On the back is a detailed instruction on how to transfer the amount through the terminal using “electronic money”.
One of these messages went to the editor.
Hide? Buy off? To the police?
What is the first, natural reaction - to pay off? “In no case!” - warns the lawyer of “ZR” Sergey Smirnov. The practice of centuries has repeatedly proved that then you will become addicted to bastards for a long time, they will continue to send you the same letters, and their appetites will grow. Look, in the best traditions of advertising (both in style and design), the villains have concluded the text with the slogan “Avaricious pays three times!”. But the one who succumbed to extortion pays more … In a word, to pay is not an option.
The motorist, who became the target of the racketeers, acted differently - for the last couple of days he has driven the car away from home for the night. But he will not hide it all his life! So, hiding is a temporary measure.
Option three, unrealistic - to move into a car. We are not discussing it. As well as access to night shifts with a bat / traumatic gun in hand.
“Would you go to the authorities”
Tell law enforcement! The role of the owner was assumed by the correspondent of “Behind the Wheel” - he called the service 02 on his behalf.
“So what do you want from us?” - the voice answered without emotions.
“Contact your territorial internal affairs department with a statement,” the interlocutor suggested calmly.
It was on the eve of March 8, but there was no desire to congratulate the upcoming. The prospect did not smile on holiday weekend to leave half a bag of nerves at the police station - who knows, even as a victim, he knows. And then, it is clear that you will not be delighted - the servicemen also want peace in the holidays.
Wide black bullshit
But why not immediately accept the application by phone, write down the data of the caller, take the details of the machine - and start acting? Clearly, this is not an isolated case - for sure, not one car owner received the “letter of joy”. Fraudsters "row with a wide nonsense": of course, they will not be satisfied with five hundred rubles - they threatened many with a rout to rip money off at least some. (See: the letter is clearly propagated, and “floating” details are inscribed in empty columns). Detectives will need the original, as a piece of evidence? The applicant may bring it a little later.
Criminals count on that
However, who will bear, if already at the first appeal, to the service 02, he is delicately, but "sent"! Not a discovery: there is no full confidence in the police, because citizens are not informed of many crimes. The worst thing is that the criminals are certainly counting on this, and they are not far from the truth.
The police protected us badly. Yes, detectives can quickly find millions of rubles stolen in a bank, not always on time, but they can neutralize terrorists. But in our ordinary life we feel poorly protected.
Under the control of the editors
Deputy Vyacheslav Subbotin, the chief editor of “Behind the Wheel”, when he learned about the reaction of the employee of service 02, said in his hearts: “Freeloaders! “They crave respect for themselves, increase salaries, but they don’t want to do anything, so that people support them, respect them.”
But the editors do not put an end to: our employee was given the task to trace the investigation of the case of automobile racketeers vandals to the end. Report wait soon.
