    Because the police have taken this long to say this is a civil matter and not stolen. I bought it from a motor dealer in June, It vanished with the sales staff too !!, Hence STOLEN !.

    Were you ever in possession of the vehicle? Have it registered in your name? Were you confidence tricked, victim of embezzlement or fraud?

    No, I never got a chance to take the vehicle away or get the V5 (But V5 is no proof of ownership), But I still have the receipt, And therefore the legal owner . The battery was flat on the day I visited and bought it, The alarm and immobilizer did play up when a jump start was carried out, But after that it ran well. The dealer said it would be ready the next day after charging the battery overnight. The following morning they phoned to say the immobilizer was still playing up and it had gone away for repair.
    This carried on for the next two weeks saying that it was still being repaired despite my visits there. The following week I returned to find the office closed, And most of the 69 other vehicles for sale there had gone with the sales staff too !.
    This was clearly deception / Fraud and theft as far as I'm concerned, But the police think otherwise and will not take this matter any further even after all this time. ( The following is something I wish I had done earlier, That is Google, Mid Norfolk Motor Company, And click on reviews, There you will find the truth in this company who have " Left " )
    So if anyone is offered this vehicle for sale, Don't buy it and please inform me via here. Green TD5 Reg BL 52 EJA.

    Long shot - but if you paid with a credit card, can you get your money back from the credit card company?

    Have you searched for their number to find if they have a new trading address?

    If yer have proof of ownership from buying it can you ask the DVLA for current owner details or go and talk to them to see if they can help in anyway?

    Seems to me you paid for a vehicle but the seller went bankrupt before it was delivered. If so you probably never owned it and it was not stolen from you. The bankrupt's creditors have first call on any assets of value. You as a customer is bottom of the list of creditors. This is probably why the police are telling you it is a civil matter. Suggest you speak to a solicitor to find out your legal position.

    Check the traders name and company name on Companies House to find their current status of still running, dissolved etc
