The scams of qhis kind work because at first glance they don’t give the feeling of something dangerous to stay away from. Especially today, in times of crisis, people do not know how to earn and launch themselves into any adventure.
These are scams studied at the table. The passenger seat envelope method works like this: the expert scammer manages to open the door without damaging it, but above all without getting noticed. Then, he puts a white or yellow envelope on the seat and waits for the scammed person to arrive. When the owner of the vehicle gets into the car, he finds the dispossessed envelope next to him and opens it.
The envelope placed on the seat hides a risk
Inside the envelope is a message in which the scammers write that the envelope lying on the seat proves the alarm does not work and that there is a method to solve the problem in no time. To know this remedy, however, you have to pay. If you fall into the trap you pay without obviously receiving anything and everything ends there.

The second method involves a plastic bottle, wedged on the front wheel of the car, on the passenger side. This serves to make noise as soon as the machine starts and moves for a few meters. The driver automatically stops, gets out with the engine running and checks what happened. The victim suddenly finds himself without money and without a car because the scam steals everything together in a fraction of a second.
