    there was a thing on Tv about cars being taken to Cyprus and re-registered with greek docs and then shipped of as un-stolen cars around the world, the wheels fell off this scam when a Brit living in Australia decided to send the said car back to the UK where it was stolen from and try to get it registered to find out it was a stolen car, he of course showed them of the trail of paperwork it came with, and the rest is history.

    I'd never heard of them before.I have entered this site and
    find some interesting information there...I'm totally agreed that the GPS tracking devices allowed the gang to work out the easiest time and place to steal the car...
