“Wouldn’t it be a good idea to cover the VIN number in your car with a piece of tape so that it couldn’t be read from outside the vehicle?”

I don’t know if Customs and Border Agents will go to the trouble of scanning it from the inside. These characters seem to have these border-crossers figured out from the git-go so they would probably find a way to get that number.

I meant everybody cover their VIN number.

Apparently you can get a new key made by supplying the VIN number to a dealer. It seems like a good way to et your car stolen, or (in this case) to have illegal contraband stowed in your trunk without your knowledge.
