    Simple solution: Make sure that they don't know which vehicle to search for. Anyone could find mine. But nobody would know to look for it.

    Really, if you met me in meatspace, you'd have no clue.

    Hey, SUV.

    That reminds me of Shannon McCoole, former Love Zone admin "skee". It seems that he typically began posts with "Hiyas" perhaps from Tagalog). So investigators googled "skee hiyas". And they found posts on a 4WD forum, by a similarly named user, who used the same unusual greeting. In one post, he asked about lift kits. So investigators then restricted their searches with the suggested SKUs. And that led them to his Facebook page, where he had bragged about his vehicle. There, they also learned that he worked as a nanny. Busted.

    But of course, you don't really drive an SUV ;)
