    That’s brilliant! Is the cow part of the sale?

    No. It’s dead, as described in the listing.

    Could be a kidnapping, though she looks fairly happy about it. Unsure where the bike is…

    Also, just because you can…. 😳

    Gotta love insomnia…

    Intentional to obscure the number plate?

    Why do people do that in for sale adds? It’s quite common.

    If I can’t put it in MOT checker I assume there’s something to hide and I just move on, does anyone ever ring them?

    It’s weird, isn’t it. It’s not like you can’t see a whole host of registration plates using the nefarious tactic of “looking outside.”

    People who put more than one thing in the photo of whatever is being sold. (It’s the red one.)

    People who put a pic of their car on the back of a breakdown truck WHEN THE CAR IS NOT BEING SOLD SPARES OR REPAIR AND THERE’S NO MENTION OF ANY PROBLEM IN THE ADVERT!

    Well, if I was planning a ram raid, I might search for a legit vehicle the same in detail as the one I’d stolen and fake the plates so that ANPR or police searches wouldn’t flag anything with the stolen one I was driving.

    At least I think that’s why.

    It’s not only on Facebook or gumtree, saw this the other day in our classifieds. Pics not really selling it to me! I mean, at least clean it..

    Kayak – you could do that by looking out into the street or a public car park even! What have I missed?

    I was about to post that I was disappointed my add hadn’t made it here…but it has. Awesome. It’s off to my mates charity this weekend if no one makes an offer!

    TBH the photos are quite good… but… what? It’s not even a real one! Maybe in the garden alongside my wicker Harley?

    I suspect it’s because someone on the internet told them their car could get cloned or whatnot.

    There’s a lot of paranoia about scams etc.

    Or they know the MOT history is a massive red flag.

    Yeah but if you’ve stolen a blue transit custom that you intend to do a bank job with. Instead of sitting out in the road waiting for a blue transit custom to go by so that you can adopt the plates, you just search for one for sale and use that.

    Only, there’s a finger in the way.

    That’s my take on it anyway.
    You’re not preventing anything, but maybe you’re making it less straightforward.

    The ability to easily search by make, model, trim level etc. and find a car matching mine to copy the plates of, potentially years later.

    Edit: Beaten to it!

    Plus if I select a car at the far end of the country, it’s a lot less likely that I’m going to end up parked next to it making it obvious.

    There’s a lot of paranoia about scams etc.

    I think the hire car thread shows that one person’s paranoia is another’s sensible precaution, and you don’t generally find out you were wrong until it’s too late. Not saying you’re wrong, but it doesn’t seem too far fetched to be a bit cautious about it.

    We didn’t have a phone camera so took this on some ancient fujifilm, developed it badly and then scanned it with the lid open.
