Any tips you guys got? I read about car hopping earlier today and well don't laugh but it was the first time I had heard of it. Mainly gonna be looking for a few dollars and some electronics. I could probably turn around and sell em on the internet for fast cash. Should I attempt to have a pc wiped if I find one? And what electronics should I beware of?

I thought about doing this last week when I was walking to my bro's condo. Passed a bunch of cars and thought to myself how easy it would be to get into one, steal some stuff, then walk off like nothing ever happened.

I noticed that there's an old Meijer nearby and they don't have security cam's outside so the only thing stopping me are any customers that might be out.

Another idea I had is that it would be a good idea to rob cars parked in the back of the parking lot because that is usually where employees are suppose to park and they usually aren't gonna be coming outside unless its break time or time to leave.

Your thoughts?

    Do a thread title search for "car shopping" on Cocklet -- I seem to remember there are a lot of threads about it, and one "Official Thread" with lots of good info.

    Least you need to know:

    - Wear gloves. Even if you don't think your local police care that much, people are always getting caught because they didn't.

    - No one cares about car alarms, but I wouldn't stick around one going off.

    - Act like you're supposed to be where you are, what you're doing, and people will assume you are. Not dressing like a ninja helps this.

    - Going car-to-car in neighborhoods works, but don't do it in a parking lot. Take a more natural route laterally through the lot, trying doors as you pass.

    - Bring a sturdy flathead screwdriver (or prybar) for prying open locked glove boxes. People don't lock them if there's nothing good inside.

    - Bring some ninja rocks or a center punch to break out windows with if you see anything valuable lying in plain view.

    - If someone catches you trying to open their car, pretend you're drunk and thought it was yours. Stagger away.

    GPS units may have a service that allows them to be located in the event of loss or theft, but I haven't heard of anyone having trouble because of this.

    If someone has their laptop subscribed to a Lojack-type service, even if you reinstall the OS it can still reactivate as it is often resident in BIOS. I don't think this would matter if you install Linux though. I'm not sure if there are physical security systems like this for computers, either. I would also be careful here, and keep any computers offline until you can make sure of this.

    Is this cocklet another website? Cause I tried googling it and ended up going to some porno sites and see other guys dicks. That's not what I was wanting!

    Just want to say I'm still here and didn't get caught. My spoils were ok. I made 17ish dollars in change, found 1 garmin and a magellan, a large flashlight, a wrapped gift for a little girls bday. It was a book called my grandma is special. Kinda felt bad about taking that but I wanted to know what was inside and the fool of a person left the doors unlocked anyways.

    I also found a ladies, SSN, Drivers License, and 3 credit cards. I simply copied them down and put everything back that way nothing will look suspicious. That lady also had 2 knives in her purse which I took. Now I'm just contemplating how to use her CC's without getting caught. Any ideas? I have one idea. I buy what I am looking for and have it shipped to my neighbor and have it shipped while my neighbor is at work and I'm at home. I know that my neighbor works 3rd shift while I work first. I'd simply have the package in my neighbors name and when the UPS or whomever it is, comes to deliver I'll offer to sign for them.

    Would that work?

    Don't admit to crimes. And if you card, you have to take appropriate measures to protect yourself or you WILL get caught. Use Proxies or Tor when ordering online. Also, ordering to the neighbors' is a bad idea. You should have a drop house set up beforehand. There's a damn good carding thread over at Zoklet that SLIM wrote, get your ass over there and do a search. I'll link it later when I get to a computer.

    Bit shit about the present :(

    Sounds like you made a good haul overall, that present was a bit of a bummer though. Oh well, I guess they learned from that mistake. Good stuff.

    Freddy went out tonight. He needs money for rent but he'd rather be broke than in jail so he erred on the side of caution, avoiding most cars with "deterrent" lights, houses with lights on inside, most floodlit driveways, etc. He went to a rather nice neighborhood, massive houses, a lot of them two-story. One of those communities with a wall around it but no gate.

    Freddy got:

    - Motorola 1090-HC1, Verizon
    - Bag of sunflower seeds, 2 oz.
    - Small Coleman flashlight, seems to be LED, 3 AAAs
    - 4 pack Duracell AAAs
    - Nearly empty, unlabeled fragrance bottle.
    - Bottle of fragrance oil labeled CURVE WAVE (M)
    - Bottle of fragrance oil labeled ED HARDY HAND DAGGERS (M)
    - 16 Forever Stamps
    - Kenneth Cole KC3813 watch, broken strap
    - Three losing lottery tickets
    - Two empty Walmart gift cards
    - A first aid kit that looks like it was stocked in 1980
    - USB A male to USB micro male cable and wall adapter
    - Unimpressive HTC earbuds
    - Another same USB cable with no wall adapter
    - Shitty sunglasses with a gold colored chain and one arm broken off
    - "Louis V" sunglasses. That's Valentin, not Vuitton. Made in China.
    - Ridgid safety glasses
    - Ray Ban polarized sunglasses, case, cloth.
    - 1GB USB stick MP3 player, magenta, and shitty earbuds
    - Bag of candy, mostly flavored Tootsie Rolls. Stale.
    - A dollar bill
    - G2 pen, blue
    - Mediocre steel silver-colored folding knife
    - Flathead screwdriver
    - $4.20 in change (honest)

    Suffice it to say that Freddy will have to look elsewhere for his rent money.

    Freddy is nonetheless satisfied because he overcame his fear, had no confrontations or detections, and got something for his efforts.

    Freddy observed that nearly every [mini]van he tried was unlocked. The side doors seem to be a commonly overlooked point.

    From what Freddy sees, people either keep nice things in their cars or leave them unlocked, but not both. Freddy thinks that this might not be a very good way to actually make money.

    Freddy also observed that the one car with a deterrent light which he opened did not sound an alarm, while the one car that sounded an alarm had a deterrent light.

    Freddy found that the batteries in the flashlight as well as the batteries in the pack are corroded, covered in some sort of white powder. Freddy will replace them even though the flashlight works so as not to ruin it.

    That's a pretty good haul overall, shame about the change being so little. You can remove the SIM from that phone, wipe it and sell it though :thumbsup:

    Verizon is CDMA. :(
    He will see if there's any way to unlock and clear it but he's too tired to deal with it right now.

    Freddy forgot to mention something interesting. He opened one car and it smelled of weed. The backs of the front seats were cut away and hollowed out and the back seat came up. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) Freddy found no packages of weed in the car.

    Freddy reports much better results with a more middle-class neighborhood. Freddy had no police encounters, one civilian encounter*, no alarms, and no detection during illegal activity that he knows of.

    Freddy acquired:

    - Full bottle of solution labeled as morphine sulfate. :eek: Freddy did a touch-test and is currently sampling 1mL of the solution to find out whether it is actually morphine. Freddy will report back.
    - Bottle of Ramipril tablets. Freddy felt bad once he got home and looked it up. This is the second time he's stolen someone's heart meds. :(

    - $68 in bills
    - Freddy says go fuck yourself if you think he's going to count the damn change right now.

    - Sealed box of GREENSuperFood flavored drink powder (berry)

    All in same car:
    - 11 folding knives, some nice (Gerber, Buckmaster), some not (???). 6 sheaths, 4 leather.
    - One pouch that Freddy thought was more tools but actually contains reading glasses.
    - 2 blade sharpeners
    - 2 flashlights
    - 1 multitool
    - 2 Midland 2-way radios
    - TV/weather/FM/AM walkman

    - Packet of glucose tablets (why does Freddy keep stealing shit from sick people?)
    - 80GB iPod
    - Small bottle of disinfectant/virucide/fungicide spray
    - 2 AA batteries

    Freddy also seems to have taken a wiping cloth for something.

    Freddy is much more satisfied with this trip.

    Spoiler:

    Freddy was walking toward his site when an alley down a rich-bitch neighborhood caught his fancy. He figured he might see what was there. Freddy was loitering around in the alley outside someone's driveway, finishing the drink he'd brought and stiffening up, when the guy opened his garage door. Freddy moved toward the fence so as to be out of line-of-sight, as he was already wearing gloves and didn't wish to be seen like that. The guy had apparently seen him, for he came around the corner and asked, "Whatchoo doin'?" For indeed, Freddy had began to walk away when the door began to open, but stopped when hearing a noise from the other side of the back fence, thinking someone was watching. and wanting to see if it was so. Thus began a riveting conversation in which Freddy and The Guy discussed Freddy's reason for being in the alley at 2 a.m., Freddy's right to be in the alley at 2 a.m., the man's apprehension, the man's weak threat that "If it had been anyone else" Freddy might have ended up shot for standing around outside, and the man's ultimatum that Freddy had one minute to leave.

    Freddy had begun to approach a car in the conveniently darkened driveway, but had hardly set foot in the driveway proper before the door opened. The guy never mentioned anything about the cars so Freddy is sure that he was just paranoid and xenophobic. The guy dialed someone on the phone, presumably the police, and retreated to the garage. Freddy smart-mouthed with him the whole time (Oh, is that so? You own the alley now? 'Sit a crime to stand around in the alley now?) while sauntering toward the street. The man accused Freddy multiple times of Talking Noise and said he'd Betta Not Be Doing That Shit. The man, having finished on the phone, came toward Freddy. He was walking too quickly and too far for Freddy's liking, so Freddy placed a hand on his folding knife (yes, Freddy is a silly kidiot who can't knife fight and needs to start carrying already) and would have told the twat to back off if he came too much closer. Freddy backed away all the time because the dude was sketching him out. The man offered some advice about it not being safe or whatever. Freddy imagines not, with paranoid freaks out harassing innocent people out for a walk at 2 a.m. with gloves and a backpack.

    Freddy continued down the street the way he'd been going, removing his gloves in case of pigs, calming himself, and reviewing his procedures in case of police encounter (since he hadn't even done anything yet, the procedure at that point was "Don't run, shut the fuck up"). The rest of the operation went smoothly.
