The following email showed up in my inbox this morning:
Comment or Question: I was travelling to auckland city today in bus 471 from penrose. I found a key and cannot find the person who ownes the key. This car key contains this car alarm having this number on it N4096Z333. Can you please track down the person by this number if you have records who bought it? and can you please tell the person to contact me on 022397**** as soon as possible. Thanks..
Contrary to popular folklore, I’m not actually responsible for every alarm that gets installed in New Zealand. Generally, I only do the good ones, and they are normally limited to being in Wellington, which rules out the Mongoose M60 as it falls into the “Not very good category” so I refuse to install them!
The number N4096Z333 is not an individual ID tag as it is moulded to the back of every Mongoose MRC63 remote.
Also, I don’t do many installs in Auckland, although there are a couple of Toyota Surfs that now have a reasonable tidy Cobra system installed following my recent road trip to the big city.
Anyway whilst I don’t have a record of every alarm ever installed I’d still like to do my bit to help, so if you are the poor soul who has the misfortune of owning a Mongoose M60 and left their car keys on the 471 bus today, then get in touch and I’ll pass on the phone number of the nice lady who contacted me this morning.
