The Shocking Clues Our Cars May Be Giving to Criminals
Could the back of your car be a huge target for criminals? Yes, according to a former CIA officer, who claims that simple decorations and permits are revealing more about you and your family than you may have thought.

Jason Hanson, who spent six years with the CIA and now started a security business, visited Rachael Ray to discuss the scary possibilities.

He says that one of the key clues for criminals are honor roll bumper stickers.

"Right now, [a criminal] knows where your child goes to school," he says. "[A criminal] could find your child."

Another dead giveaway? Parking permits.

"That parking permit could be for a work space, so [the criminal] would know where you work," Hanson revealed. "That might be for your apartment, so [the criminal] would know where you live [and] come out of your house every day."

The third clue was so huge it gave Rachael Ray the chills.

Check it out in the video above.
