GPS jammers can be sold online
The Morning News reported that a BMW from a car rental agency in Wuhan was driven to Shanghai by a tenant and was almost dismantled and sold. Fortunately, the owner of the car rental agency followed them all the way and finally retrieved the BMW from a repair shop in this city. In fact, in order to prevent the rented vehicle from going or not, the rental car company installed 4 GPS positioning devices in the hidden position of the vehicle. I did not expect that the road is one foot high and the magic is high, but the "magic" is a small gps jammer.
According to relevant national regulations, it is illegal to develop, produce and use radio interference equipment without going through legal procedures. Where did the aforementioned GPS jammer come from? The reporter visited the electronic market yesterday and found that merchants completely ignored relevant regulations and openly sold GPS jammers. Some merchants also sold GPS jammers through the Internet. Anyone can buy them.
Yesterday, the reporter came to Yizhixin Automobile Service Company at No. 80, Lane 820, Jindu Road again, and found that the company’s sign had been removed and the door was closed tightly, but through the small door that was opened occasionally on the side, it could be seen that there were still employees working inside. There are also two cars parked. When the reporter asked in the name of repairing a car, a man said that there was something in the company and he would not be able to pick up work temporarily.
The reporter then contacted Mr. Wei in Wuhan and Mr. Zhu in Yiwu who had found the missing car. Both have returned to their respective dealerships. After obtaining the consent of the police, Mr. Zhu drove the BMW back. Mr. Wei's BMW still needs to stay in Shanghai, awaiting further investigation of the case. Yesterday, both of them contacted the local police and the Shanghai police to inquire about the progress of the case, and the reply was that the two renters are still not caught.
Yesterday, the reporter interviewed several car rental companies in Shanghai. Regarding the "robbing" of vehicles from two foreign rental car dealers, the staff all said that they have paid attention to this topic, and the circle is also hotly discussing this topic. In fact, the other party used a core tool-GPS jammer, "this thing is hard to guard against, it is the most hated thing in our business."
Has the rental process been reviewed, and are there any threshold restrictions for car hirers? In this regard, Mr. Li, the marketing director of a car rental company, said that he has actually done a lot of work on “security”, such as verifying the identity of the renter. This verification is connected to the public security information system, including transportation and UnionPay systems, to further confirm Whether the renter’s identity background meets the car rental requirements. Another way to ensure that rented vehicles can be monitored at all times is to install GPS positioning devices. In addition, the car rental company will perform data analysis during the driving of the vehicle. When there are suspicious signs such as driving to other provinces, it will promptly confirm with the user, including on-site surveys, etc. If problems are found, they will promptly report to the police. In order to prevent the GPS positioning device from being dismantled, sufficient effort will be made in the number and concealment during installation, but what I did not expect is that the crook used a new trick-GPS jammer.
