Southampton People Watch Out!

3 posts in this topic

Recently my friend has had his saxos wheel arches stolen, alot of other cars near my college have also had parts being taken off them.

It appears there's a thief operating in the Southampton/Eastleigh area who takes a photo of your car part posts it on ebay and if he gets enough bids for it steals it the night the auction ends. He's being reported soon however he/them will most likely still operate for a period until they are banned.

You should be fine if most of your car is properly welded on like newer cars but for those of you with more of a kit car style or easy to remove spoilers/body kit you might want to think about putting your car in the garage for a little while.

So is this person stealing whole cars or bits off them? Sounds like a forwarded email thingy to me.

But if not, it's exactly what I expect from Eastleigh to be honest.

Just parts, mainly body work parts such as wheel arches.

I expected it from eastliegh as well :P but apparently his ebay account is registered to Southampton , hence how my friend found him, along with his past sales being his and 5 other saxo wheel trims.

I'll see if i can get his ebay account name later just incase we have any l33t hackers here on ford forums who fancy getting his details so we can..have a chat with him :rolleyes: ;)
