not the people who you trust with your key's that are the problem. It usually begins with the people that they trust. Somewhere down the trust chain, the respect for you, your property and your key looses its integrity and your home becomes just another opportunity for an unknown person in need of quick money. It may start with an innocent remark about something one of your key holders saw or admired, to a friend or family member, this casual conversation may be overheard by someone tagging along with friends of friends. Unfortunately, this and a contrived opportunity to copy your key is often all it takes, to set the stage to burgle your home.
You are most at risk if:
- You have standard locks that do not prevent key duplication or protect against physical attack
- You have ever given others a copy of your key
- You have never changed your original locks
- You have created a "burglar friendly" environment
