Lost keys is a matter often taken quite lightly by most people who put it down to sheer bad luck. However, there might just be more to it than meets the eye.
While most of the time losing a key is often accidental, sometimes it might just be an elaborate scheme by criminals. Twenty-first century burglary is evolving, and the tactics adopted have become more sophisticated.
A lot of the keys in some neighbourhoods are numbered for specific houses and even if they aren’t, a burglar could just try out all the houses in the vicinity until he stumbles upon yours. In the event that you get your keys back, do not go about your business like nothing happened. The keys could simply be copied then returned to put you off the trail of a potential break-in.
It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so in the event that you lose your key, take it seriously. Get a locksmith to change the locks; it might just save you a great deal of trouble.
