frown Be on the look out

Just a quick note to any one that attended the Melbourne Holden and Ford show.

There was an individual walking around taking Digital Pictures of Vin No.'s, Rego plates and Badges.

My self and some other members of FPV/XR Owners club challanged this person and he made a quick get away.

I have taken Digital pictures of this individual and the information has been shared with the Major Crime squad of the Victoria Police today after they contacted me about it and asked for copies of the pictures.

I have spoken to one of the moderators of this forum tonight but have been asked to not to post the pictures on the forum yet for legal reasons.

All I can say is I urge you if your car was at the Melbourne Holden and Ford show be extra vigilant when and if I get the OK I will post the pics in this area and Pub.

Regards

Re: Be on the look out

Criminal or someone from a manufacturer? Eg. warranty voiding.

Re: Be on the look out

hmmm that is very interesting indeed, something to keep in mind

was it just of newer cars or older cars too? that could be a tell tale as to whether its warranty based or not.

maybe some electrical tape over vin numbers, and not displaying plates is the order of the day for shows now...

Re: Be on the look out

The only problem with covering up number plates is that they on display when you drive out the show. But covering up the vin number is a good idear.

Re: Be on the look out

Perhaps some might keep their bonnets shut. Unless you've done something to the engine bay that you want to show off, of course.

A lot of shows also require you to put the bonnet up to state "i'm here for the judging" not just on display. So mostly need the bonnet up at shows for judging. Also its a check box on almost all judging panels, if a judge can't get access you get minimal points.
