I believe in speaking my mind, regardless of the people or subject.

 I don’t hide behind a mask. That is my Fizzog that you can see, so what you see and read is what you get.

I have recently received these details from my NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH CO-ORDINATOR Nicole in CHORLEY, LANCASHIRE but is nationally widespread.These TECHNO GADGETS will be GLOBAL I am sure.

My Blogs  receive interest at present from (at the last count 47 Countries) and so will be of interest to many people.

Some of my readers have been surprised that I do not sell my INFO as an e-book. That is not what I am about.

The INFO that I supply via my BLOG is FREE (tho you could please click on the THUMBS UP ICON at the end of the blog) and hopefully you will safeguard yourselves by following some of it, so…………

This is as I received the advice word for word which I am amazed at and is from a POTENTIAL VICTIM and the POLICE.

“I locked my car with my REMOTE LOCKING DEVICE. As I walked away I heard my car door unlock. I went back and locked my car AGAIN, THREE TIMES!!!

Each time, as soon as I started to walk away, I could hear it UNLOCK AGAIN!!!  Naturally alarmed, I looked around and there were two men sitting in a car next to the store I was about to shop at.

They were obviously watching me, and I have no doubt that they were somehow involved in this weird situation.

I quickly abandoned my errand, jumped into my car and sped away.

I went straight to the Police Station. I told them what had happened and found out that I was part of a NEW and very successful scheme being used to GAIN ENTRY into PARKED cars at supermarkets and Park and Ride rail and bus terminals.

Two weeks later, my friend’s son had a similar experience….While travelling, he stopped at a motorway service area to use the toilet.

When he came out to his car LESS THAN 5 MINUTES LATER, someone had managed to get into his car and he had his mobile phone, laptop computer, sat-nav, briefcase and other belongings stolen. The criminals have the same set up when you PARK and RIDE at railway stations. Below is my local Park and Ride terminal.

He called the Police and since there were no signs of a forced entry the Police told him he had probably been a victim of the latest robbery tactic. There is a device that robbers are using now to CLONE your SECURITY CODE when  using your REMOTE LOCKING DEVICE.

The ‘criminals’ sit at at a distance and watch for their NEXT VICTIM. They know you are going inside the store, restaurant or whatever and they know that they have time to STEAL and RUN.

The Police Officer said ‘ALWAYS LOCK YOUR CAR MANUALLY WITH THE KEY’ when parking in a PUBLIC AREA. That way if there is someone sitting in a car nearby, watching for their NEXT VICTIM, IT will NOT BE YOU.

When you lock up with the key when exiting the vehicle, it DOES NOT SEND THE SECURITY CODE, but if you walk away and USE the REMOTE BUTTON, it SENDS the CODE THROUGH the AIRWAVES where it can be EASILY INTERCEPTED by the DEVICE”.

This is VERY REAL so be aware of what you have just read.

Think how many times we all lock our cars with our remote device just to be sure we remembered to lock them-and BINGO, someone has our CODE……and potentially whatever is in our vehicle.

The photo opposite shows shattered glass from a vehicle that was physically broken into. The chances of the criminals being caught is far greater when smashing the car windows. That seems to be why they are choosing more sophisticated methods of gaining entry to ‘our’ vehicles.

PLEASE SHARE this INFORMATION with everyone you know in the hope that we can cut down on car theft crimes and frustrate these CRIMINALS  therefore avoiding the UPSET of having our valued possessions stolen. DO IT NOW.

Take care

Hi Guys.

Welcome to ‘Old Git‘ Jimbo’s blog @ my personal e-mail is .

The websites are and

Checkout our GIZMO page, WISH LIST & FUN RELATED SEXY & RISQUET  t-shirts, & also our 2/3 way team shirts. 

I believe in speaking my mind, regardless of the people or subject.

I don’t hide behind a mask. That is my Fizzog that you can see, so what you see and also read is what you get.

I believe in being contentious because it’s likely to invite a reaction/response.

Rarely do the guilty parties respond. Although when you think about it, their lack of response is sometimes considered as an admission of fault/guilt.


A few days ago my mobile phone was stolen. I reported it to the police. They said they could do nothing about it, but would inform me if it was handed in.

I have a problem with why we can’t get our mobile phones returned.

If rogue reporters can HACK into our phones, then surely the police can MAP the LOCATION of our phones.



The Police have a duty to the citizens of the UK.

The mobile companies sell/rent the phones to us.

The Insurance Companies receive/accept our money to cover the loss of our mobile phones.


The mobile phone business is a MULTI-BILLION pound industry.

I think it’s time that all 3 groups get their heads together and resolve how they can help to return the phones to us.

The Police will say that they have better things to do than tracking a mobile phone.

The Mobile Companies will be wringing their hands with GLEE because it means a HIGHER TURNOVER of phones being purchased/rented.

Presumably the Insurance Companies will gain the most, because they will receive more £££’s from us for  insuring our phones because to own/lease a phone is less than our insurance costs.


Anyone who has lost or had their mobile phone stolen knows just how demoralising and incovenient it is.

All our contacts have gone. Our pictures of family, friends and special occasions have gone, and in some cases VERY PERSONAL INFORMATION.

I was fortunate that after I contacted my Virgin Media

provider to inform them of my loss I checked my account online and was relieved to find that there hadn’t been any calls made, except for a couple of blank texts’ sent to a friend who happened to be in Tenerife. I saw the transactions online and called him. That is when he told that he had received 2 blank text’s from my mobile phone. It’s a pity the thief/thieves didn’t make a call to one of his/their  friends instead because then I would have had a chance, through the police of tracking him/them down.

If I had been a suspected criminal or terrorist, I’m sure the police would have known of my whereabouts and noticed after a few days that I wasn’t following the usual pattern of activity.

I can just see the scenario of a criminal or terrorists’ phone falling into the hands of a small time mobile phone thief/thieves and the armed Police SWAT squad raiding his/their home at the crack of dawn while still believing him/them to be the terrorist they had been tracking.

He/they would probably be screaming, “IT WASN’T ME GUV“!!!

That would be great because, to you thieve’s  ‘WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND’.

That would be ‘POETIC JUSTICE’.

While on the subject of mobile phones, I am moving house in a weeks time, and my provider is Virgin Media.

The company that Sir Richard Branson bought is a company that has changed ownership and  ‘brand names’ over the years. I have been  loyal to the same company  that he bought for 18 yrs.

I have the full package with Virgin Media which consists of, Broadband, full TV package, landline phone and 2 mobile phones which all cost about £110 per month.

I checked my post code to see if I could have my set up changed/moved to my new address. Unfortunately Virgin Media is not street cabled where I am moving to.

There are about 40 semi-detached and detached properties where I am moving to, and they are all business people who spend a considerable amount of money on similar systems that I have, but not with Virgin Media. I know because I have a few friends who live in the same close.

I recently watched the Parliament channel and the politicians were debating the future access of Broadband etc., into Rural areas. I live in the Town of Chorley and can’t get cable. Chorley has cable, but not where I am moving to.

I am having to arrange for BT to give me the same package that I have had with Virgin Media.

I wonder if Sir Richard is aware of neglected Urban areas that are not street cabled but that BT are.

All they do is run the cables along side BT’s so what’s holding them back? Is it the fact that his staff haven’t the foresight that he has?

I know that Sir Richard has read my blogs so hopefully he’ll read this one and realise that there must be many, many more areas that he doesn’t have cabled.  Having said all that  I sincerely think he is the right man to run the NATIONAL LOTTERY FRANCHISE.  

That’s it for now, so until the next blog, take care and stay healthy.
