Tipos de "Ladrão" em inglês


Eu sei o significado de alguns tipos de ladrões, mas eu achei alguns que nunca tinha ouvido falar, eu gostaria de saber quando usar, quais as palavras sinônimas e o teor subjetivo, ou seja, se é uma pessoa que furta ou que usa de violêcia etc... essa é a lista:


Se souberem de algum outro tipo de ladrão também seria legal.

I just remembered this one -- "Girl stalker"

A guy who repeatedly or annoyingly follows, harasses or threatens a girl by appearing at the girl's home or place of business. He will at times make harassing phone calls, leave written messages or objects, or vandalize a girl's property, according to the U.S. Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime (OVC).

The U.S. Department of Justice considers stalking any unwanted contact between two people that directly or indirectly communicates a threat or places the victim in fear, but the actual legal definition of stalking varies from state to state according to each state's laws.

Have you ever noticed or heard of stalker cases in Brazil? In your mind, do stalkers need medical help?

Street mechanic confidence man. Guy who "aplica o golpe do carro quebrado."

As I inched out of the parking lot in downtown Recife, this guy frantically warns me, "[There is] smoke coming out from under your car [on the] passenger side!" I backed into the parking lot. As I opened the hood, he says, "Turn off the motor and turn it back on!" As I stuck half my body into the car to turn the ignition key, only the starter works, the motor not. To make me believe my car had a defect, the guy quickly had pulled one of the motor plugs too small to notice at first.

To make a long story short, he wanted to drive me to an independent repair shop where he told me he would fix the car for me for free as long as I shelled out R$2800 for a moving parts "cheap". I told him no, I will call a tow truck. Before I could ask him where all the smoke really came from since I saw none, he disappeared around the corner.

I WISH I HAD MADE IT SHORT. Sorry. Please you guys wise up to someone telling your automobile has a flat or one of its door knobs just fell. Do not park. Drive on. One hundred percent of the time they want to con you into believing your car has a malfunction it really never had.
