I live in a suburb of Chicago, I went to downtown Chicago for a bead show. The hotel said there was pay parking behind the hotel. I drove around back and found a lot and pulled in (there are alot of these lots downtown.) A man came up and told me to leave the car and he would park it, I asked if it would be safe he said yes and asked me what time I would be back. This was at 11:45 am I told him about 3:00 pm. he gave me a claim check and he drove my car away. At 3pm we came back and there were 2 men and the man that parked my car. He said "Oh your car is gone" I thought he was joking. (the 2 new guys were kind of laughing). I walked around the lot and he kept saying yes a black man jumped the fence and drove off in your car.. I said how did he get the keys he said the keys were under the front seat. The police were called at the time 1:20 pm but the attendent did not know my plate # so they could not even report it. (my plate # is my name) he must not be able to read esp. since he said he ran after the guy.. chasing my car but did not get the #. My car was found later that night smashed not to bad! but they emptied out the entire inside.. approx. $500 worth of stuff.. nothing that I can not live with out but my stuff. Now I have to pay $500 deductable to have my car fixed. (it needs to be fixed) and my insurance does not cover any thing inside. They told me to put it on my home owners. (I live with my boyfriend his home owners will only cover what is in the house not when is in my car.) I think the parking lot should compensate me for the entire cost since they left the keys in the car. If people knew this they would not park there. Maybe it was an inside job, every one says let go of it. I CAN'T!
