Paintball attack on my car
I live in a gated community. Last night my car got attacked with what appears to be paintballs. GRR I am SOOOO mad. This is the 3rd time in 4 months that something has happened to my car!!! last time someone took the registration sticker of my license plate. I am getting sick of this. We have security. Every time I report it. I am the only person that this happens to. Now I have to leave work early in order to get my car detailed. At least the HOA is going to go over the security tapes to see if they can see anything. but I doubt it. the cameras only cover small areas.

:hug: that stinks!! I hope you can figure out soon who is doing it...

Ugh! I hope you find out who is doing this. At least your HOA is attempting to do something, mine wouldn't.
Our neighborhood had the "trash can pyromaniac" a few months back. That was fun getting woke up at 2am by a neighbor and seeing everyone's garbage can on fire. Real nice to have to clean up burnt plastic off your driveway too.
I hope you find out who the culprit is or at least they get scared and stop doing it.

:hug: Well, that just totally s*cks. I hope the HOA helps you out. Is there anyway they could set up a camera (at least temporarily) that would "survey" your driveway and maybe catch the person in the act? At least maybe then the thought of them being "filmed" would scare them away.

I'm so sorry. :hug:

Thank you all for your kind words. the security camera pan stops right before my car. They just have to turn it. Soooo I am hoping that they turn it or set up the swivel thingie so it does a swoop to capture my car We also have night security that they just hired a month before so maybe he saw something. hopefully. I'm supposed to hear back from them tomorrow. I just hope the vandalism stops since it seems I am the only person that is hit. I wouldn't take it personally if it wasn't just me. if someone has an issue why won't they just KNOCK ON THE DOOR!

Start chatting it up that you are setting up a camera to catch them, even if you don't. If it's someone in your neighborhood it will quickly get around to them and they'll stop.
I had some goon that kept stealing my newspaper. I told everyone that I knew that I got up now at 6am to see the paper delivered and I was watching out the front window to see who it was that was so cheap they had to steal a paper. I never had a paper ripped off again, the neighborhood telegraph worked. :teehee:

That stinks! I don't understand why people have to do stuff like that. Hope they catch the culprit(s)!

I'm so sorry that you're having trouble with vandalism, but from what you've said it sounds like the person/persons doing this has knowledge that the security camera doesn't pan to your car. You can buy "fake" cameras that look like the real thing, maybe if you could get one and install it so that it looks like it's filming your car, the troublemaker/s might decide that it's not worth the risk. I sure hope that this stops for you, it's just such a pain in the rear end to have to deal with others causing trouble.
