When a used-car dealership added an Internet-based device to remotely set off the car alarm of its late-paying car owners, it didn’t envision the system being used like this.
Here’s the back story: When Mr. Omar Ramos-Lopez was laid off by the Austin, Texas-based car dealership that employed him, he wanted to get some type of revenge.
Rather than pulling a Jerry Maguire type of exit, Ramos-Lopez orchestrated a more creative parting shot.
Because he had the code for remote car alarm system that the company used to remind car owners they were late on their payments, he used it to his advantage.
Ramos-Lopez allegedly used the alarm system to set off over 100 car alarms on cars that had been sold by the dealership.
