Reader asks , “Is there a possibility that the owners are tired of paying for their cars and deliberately “conveniently forget” the key fobs”

” Is there a possibility that the owners are tired of paying for their cars and deliberately “conveniently forget” the key fobs and possessions left in the car? Maybe they are like the “self-centered ass” who either figure “it will never happen to me” Or “who cares, I have insurance”. People have been reminded often enough to do the correct procedures which usually can keep their cars in safety to still have people who accidentally “forget” in the vast number of robberies we are currently seeing! “
