Urgent Help

Last night I got robed, lost everything I was carrying with me including my credit cards,home and car keys . This morning managed to call the banks the Insurance and change the home locks but unfortunately I can't do nothing about the 159 key the only one I had, bizarrely I lost the first one years ago and never bothered to have a spare one again. The car is locked and away from my home address (work place).
This morning I made more than 50 calls to the dealers, breakers and ebay without any chance, unless I have to order it from Italy, which it takes about 5 to 7 working days. Has anybody here ever reprogrammed a used key and did it work?
I would appreciate if somebody from this forum has unused 159 spare key and could sell it to me please?
Any help

This case I would benefit to use double- decker for 5-7 days.
New key should fit particular car ECU and to be ordered from factory.
Sorry for joke but it is essential to do.

You have to be careful about "used" keys. Check some of the many old key threads.

Remember you'll also need to change the mechanical lock on the drivers
door if you don't want the thief easily getting into your car.

Also aren't your car keys covered on your house insurance?
In which case just order the new set from the dealers and let the
house insurance cover it.
