    Default Who scratch my car?

    Event: Yesterday evening I was parked at a public multi storey carpark white lot and went for dinner at the near-by hawker centre. When I returned after 3h, a few scratches were found on the passenger side door and the left back door too. It was not like those incur by car accidently scrape pass my car but like dilibrately scratch with sharp object (eg keys). These scratches were about 30cm long across the door and my heart was aching when I saw them. Of course I don't think I have offerended anyone by parking there and within my own lot. Or I have any outstanding loanshark debt. Why me???

    Questions: Should I or do I need to make any police report? I know it won't help my heartache but if I am not the isolated case, they might step up patrol and maybe prevent others from the same fate or maybe catch the culprit?

    What can be done to cover up the scratches other than repainting the whole car/doors? It could get very expensive to do that.

    Does insurance cover that? Must go back to check policy.

    what car were you driving?

    Police report no use, but will give them info on the location so they might look out for a pattern.

    Insurance won't cover. The only thing is to repaint.

    pls go make a police report so that they can do something about it..

    if the scratch is not deep,there are some procdut that can "cover" it back..

    i remember seeing the group of pp working at the carpark beside capitol offering such service..

    if u claim ur insurance for this,u will lose ur NCB and pay more premium..

    No use unless you have video the act and report to police. If the fellow can't pay yet you still can't do anything. unless you are those that can said somebody is earning peanut.

    Welcome to the club of "who scratched my car?' ..... We have to learn to accept these marks ..... My fren's car had an almost perfect circle scratch mark around her car ...how's that for heartache ? ...she probably would have died of a heart attack when she saw those marks.... there is nothing we can do..... unless you wanna scratch another car to make you feel better ? but this is a terrible cure for your heartache

    On the positive side..as long as they are not deep marks ..... move on


    I hope you feel better now

    I remember my friends' story about one doctor that always park his car at hospital. One day he found a scratch marked by key. Quite long, around 2-3 meters. He grumble, but what to do...., paint it nice. But, few days afterthat, somebody scratch his car again. Paint it again nicely. Scratch again, few times. Until he is angry and put a cctv camera to watch his car. He found his college, a doctor, scratch his car. He bring the matter to the hospital director board. Looks like his college jealous to him since he is got more patient than him. Case settle there. But his wife, a doctor also, want to bring this case to court. So the case is on court. I don't know the result.

    Moral of this story: GAFFER YOUR CAR!!!

    Isn't scratching a car considered vandalism hence criminal? Thought the doc should have been arrested?

    Even when I cover my bike with canvas also kena. So I dun see why you can and will be spared! Lesson learnt - Make your car or bike so dirty than it will pain them more by dirtying their key than by scratching your car. Gaffer tape they will still remove and scratch one. Trust me they will. For my method, they will clean the car FOC for you then they scratch it!

    better get your car repainted ASAP. the exposed area will start to rust and the rust will spread even to the painted regions as there's a breach in the paint..
