If you’re worried about break-ins at home, this could help . . . A former burglar claims the best way to prevent them is also one of the cheapest: Just put up a sign that says “BEWARE OF DOG”. If you have a dog, great. But it works even if you don’t. He says the average burglar won’t risk it. They’d rather move on and try another house instead.
He says it’s more of a deterrent than those signs that say you’ve got a security system installed. And they only cost about five bucks. (Mirror)
