People from the motor trade have been warning drivers to be careful to whom they hand over keys. Thieves have posed as garage workers at busy firms and emerge from the building when a customer pulls in, take the keys and drives away with the car. Read about it here. The same scam has been used at car-rental depots at airports all over Europe. When a customer turns up anxious to catch a flight they'll happily handover keys to the guy in the company t-shirt. It comes as a bit of shock when the car company phones up looking for their vehicle. And if you didn't take out fully comprehesive insurance then you got to pay for the car as well.
