http://pleaserobme.com/ that pulls data from Twitter and Foursquare, two services where members broadcast updates about where they are and what they're doing. Which also is a valuable resource for burglars who want to know when their potential victims are away from home.
The site's operators DON'T want people to get burglarized. Pleaserobme.com is part parody, part warning to people who give away too much information online.
One of the local TV stations was talking about the "please rob me" site last night, and warned people they should NOT put out so much personal info for anyone to read on the web. It totally boggles my mind that people could be that clueless!

Another tip; I've seen more than one break in where the BGs used tools from the homeowner's toolbox to break locks/safes and used the family car to haul the stuff away.
Lock your toolbox, and hide or lock up your spare car/house keys.
Great reminders! Thanks for the post!P.S. If anyone needs some dog poop for their fake security dog, you're welcome to come get some from my yard.nutz4utwo Quote:

Also, people park their cars on the street or driveway with the garage door opener in the visor... Anyone can break the car window and press that button for easy access to the garage and then the house.
Hide that opener (ashtray works well) and lock the door between the house and the garage...
I'm also a fan of leaving the T.V. on in the front room and bedroom for the dogs and cat.

I have heard that having the garage opener manual handle hanging down by a garage door window is a way for the BG to just break the small window and pull on the handle unlocking the garage door.
The OP & comments are all good reminders.
"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
I've seen where Burglars did it the simpliest way possible..... the cut a hole in the roof with a battery operated saw, dropped down into the attic and right thru the sheetrock ceiling.

Too bad you can't just give ignorant family members a "friendly, educational burglary." But even that is a crime and not recommended. But no doubt, you'd like to.
Still, I don't think even that would wake up some people.

Check the outside of the house for those "fake rocks" that people leave keys beneath. That's just toooo easy. While you're at it, look under the mat and above door frames and beneath flower pots sitting around. You might get lucky.
One more thing...I know that if I do something that trips the alarm, the phone in your house will ring. That's the alarm company calling to see if it's a false alarm. If the phone doesn't ring, I can be pretty sure that you have decided to save some money and stop paying the monitoring fee. There will be some noise, but nobody is calling the cops.
