AN AMERICAN TOURIST'S STORY OF THEFT IN ARUBA


Author: Wade (---.252.96.224.Dial1.Cincinnati1.Level3.net)


My wife and I just returned this Sun. from Aruba. We are repeat visitors and have never had any problems with theft on the island until this Sat.


While I was snorkeling at Malmok Beach, someone got into my snorkel bag hidden in the rocks and took the car key (left my wife's snorkel equip.) and stole the rental car. My wallet, cash, credit cards, driver’s license, etc. were locked up in the trunk. We purchased all additional ins. offered to us from Budget but they state we declined Theft ins.


Bottom line... It was never offered to us, we are responsible for the cost of the car until it is located.


BE CAREFUL- WEAR YOUR CAR KEY AROUND YOUR NECK OR WRIST AS THE POLICE LATER ADVISED US!!


Is there anybody with a similar incident that can give me some advice. I have nobody to represent me when they find the car and return it to Budget. The car was in pretty bad shape when it was given to us but I did video tape the car before we took it.


Anybody seen a white Toyota Yaris Lic plate # V- 3631??? We love Aruba and will return next year but this is a huge problem that the police call JOY RIDING. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.

It serves the couple right. For going to Aruba in the first place. You lay with the dogs. You get fleas.

The Dutch taught the Arubans to steal from the American tourists. Their Dutch laws are Anti-American. Let the stubborn American tourists learn their own lessons, and never visit Aruba again.

That doesn't matter. Michelle is the most qualified Natalee speaker. She is ready and available to work hard to get the justice for Natalee. Many PhD graduates are porposing to marry her. Money is not everything. Justice and true love are.

LMAO, me thinks someone has a major crush on Michelle.

While Michelle is the owner of this blog, she doesn't do all the hard work by herself. She has many helpers who bring a LOT of her post and info to her.

So, in saying this....

My hats off to all of us who are in support of Michelle and the boycott of Aruba.

e careful Michelle hun, there some really strange people who become obsessive.

I assumed they were comments sarcastically left by people that hate me and my blog. I have a good sense of humor...
