So, I'm doing some last minute shopping tonight, wandering through Target for a good hour or so, and head out to my truck.

I load some stuff into the back, go to open my door and I see a folded up note stuck in the door handle. Odd.

I get in and see another note under my windshield wiper. Really odd.

I unfold the paper that was in my door and read the following.

---
<license_plate>
White Chevy Suburban

Your vehicle was hit by the above vehicle.
---

I get the other piece of paper and find a name and number written on it, I walk to the side of my truck and what do I see?

The stupid *expletive* drug her bumper from the back of my rear door, across the rear corner of the cab, the front quarter of the bed, and all the way across the rear tire before stopping short of my bed-side box. How the *expletive* do you get so far without realizing what you're doing?

I called the number and left a voicemail, haven't received a call back yet. Perhaps she'll call tomorrow.

Merry Christmas! :flame:

Sorry that happened to your Titan.I also have a big door ding in mine from some butt munch that didn't even have the courtesy to leave a note.

Just make sure you take it to a GOOD repair shop.

Sorry to hear about that but at least someone was looking out for you though. Possible hit and run maybe?

Talk to target see if they have a camera pointed in your direction. If they do, they can look it up and see if they can get a shot of the license plate for you. It is a long shot, but you might just get lucky!

That does suck. At least you got a name and number and maybe a valid licnese plate. You can also file a claim with the mall/store. It is private property and they have insurance for such things.

Man that really sucks. I also had somebody drag their bumber across my titan from the middle part of the passenger door all the way to the rear quarter panel. You are lucky though cause nobody left a note on my titan.

I'm sorry this happened to your truck but I hope you are not mean to this person when you contact him/her. This person did the right thing by leaving a note.

They could have even been a better person and either waited for him in there vehicle or walked back into Target, got the attention of a manager, and possibly announced something over the intercom.

That would have been the right thing to do IMO.

If they give you any attitude whatsoever get your lawyer on there asses!!!

At least the note had a number on it instead of:

"I hit your truck. Everyone watching me right now thinks I'm leaving you my contact information on this note. They are wrong."

So, still no word back from whoever's cell phone I left a message on. The name on the voicemail doesn't match so I'm wondering if it's a bogus name and number. In any event, someone else was kind enough to leave the license plate info and make/model.

Local sheriff won't get involved since it happened on private property, so I'm going to call Target and see if they offer any solutions.

All else fails, my insurance will cover it as a comprehensive claim.

My wife says I'm taking it very well. haha I'm annoyed, I love my truck, but it's a truck and I have insurance. It's not the end of the world.

And no, I'm not going to be mean/aggressive if I ever get in touch with the person that did it. I really am a nice guy most of the time. :D I'll have some pics up soon.

I say if you find out they left you bogus information (with having the plate number and model) you should get a lawer and fry their [email protected]@es. Keep us posted on this one!

Wow,

Sorry to hear about you Titan. I witnessed a similar situation in a local Borders book store parking lot. Some moron driving an old Buick backed out of his space and used the car accross the isle from him as brakes, bashed the rear of their car so hard the bumper dropped 4", he just put it in drive and headed out. I left a note on the other persons car stating what happened and that I would be a witness for them. I never heard from them, but I tried. Possibly the person who left the note for you was also someone who saw what happened?

Insurance adjuster is supposed to come out today to take pics. Still no luck reaching the person at the number they left, but the adjuster did look up the plate and it does match the make/model so that's a good sign. Just need to contact them and make them confess so I don't have to pony up my deductible!

Pics...

If I were her, I would be scared to confront the owner, never know what they will pull. Contacting the police to file an accident report is what she should have done.

You are very fortunate that you have a contact number. I would thank her for being considerate and her taking ownership of the mishap. Frankly, she could have driven off with little recourse. That is indeed a nasty dent- sorry to hear that it happened.

Well, so far the name/number left don't match up at all with the registered owner of the vehicle.

HOWEVER, the adjuster just showed up a few mins ago to write up an estimate and he told me that he just came from the registered owner's house. The Suburban was parked in the driveway and he was able to take pictures of the damage to their vehicle to match it up to the damage done to my Titan.

Justice will be served, he said if they avoid him/his calls that their internal collections department will make sure they pay. Rock on!

I wish I knew who left the note with the license plate and make/model so I could thank them, doing that saved me at least $500 and will make sure the person that did it won't get off the hook.

I'm happy!

Oh, I understood the note to be from the person that hit you. This is a different story. Someone witnessed the ordeal and gave you the plate info. I would get the police involved then to file a hit and run.

I already contacted them, they don't get involved since it was on private property. They are going to send me a reverse police report for me to fill out and mail back to them so they have it on file.

I'm just happy the sucker's house was tracked down and pics were taken of the damage to their vehicle. :D
