    I would assume Edward was done for the way he carried out his business as opposed to giving back money. This is how to catch these people out. As you say they know it will happen one day so they hide their loot.

    Organised professional bastids still bleed and feel pain and you'd be amazed at what will burn with a 'lil help from a hydrocarbon

    Many chaps like that are surprised at how few friends they have when both their arms are broken and they can't wipe their own arse ....

    Problem is if he steps across the line of illegal activity then he can get himself into a lot of trouble with them or the police. He needs to follow the legal route. If that fails then there isn't anything he can do. It would be great getting revenge but the place is said to be full of security cameras and a dog on guard. As said above there's probably someone out there who would pop along at night for revenge but getting involved with that means entering the criminal world. I appreciate the situation is annoying but talk of anything other than the legal route isn't going to happen so it's just filling the fred with cr*p. If it's suddenly burnt out in the near future then I sit corrected.

    There are a few chaps, who would seek retribution on behalf of someone, regardless of the consequences... but purely for 'shits and giggles' ... might be a military thing ...

    Of course no one would recommend taking the law into their own hands or discussing how to do it on a public forum, things like that are best left to the powers that be

    Reading through the posts here...to those who are hinting/recommending a more ‘kinetic’ approach to this issue:STOP.
    This is an open forum, any discussions around this nature means that you’re all potentially incriminating yourselves-in black and white for all to see. Think what you’re doing. OP take whatever course of action you feel will help but consider consequences of actions.

    I'd be quite happy to go on record saying bad things if it were me that this had happened to.

    If you have enough money to throw at it there are people that will make them pay for what they have done and stop it happening again, but the reality is that very few people have that kind of money to throw away, and if they did they wouldn’t have been driving an old disco in the first place or shopping around for repairs.

    Hopefully now the OP has a crime number he will get something back from the insurance. It most likely won’t be anywhere near what it’s cost him but better than nothing.

    It amazes me the lack of interest from the police. I know they are busy but they surely can’t get away with ignoring certain crimes just because they are busy with other stuff, and regardless of where he lives he would surely only be dealing with Police in England?

    There is a guy on FB that reports stolen Landies etc., he has recently been threatened by 'gangsters' and had threats to his family and home ....

    Please be aware that public forums are NOT the place to be discussing 'how to get retribution' ...

    The police are interested int car crime. They quote 40% of their resources are spent on it. If the place is the crime hot spot we're assuming it is... they must know of it. They have been in there before. Theres a Midlands regional crime unit which looks into kicked cars. So yer would think they're setup to look into this sort of thing.

    Scotland is daft. They have to have Scottish BBC, Scottish NHS. It wouldn't surprise me if they have their own separate police who's first language int English. I don't know how they operate but I'm surprised they haven't done anything.
    The op has gone quiet.

    Although the place looks a mess... Some of the cars they have would be very eggspensive if road worthy and working. They would be owned by rich people. There int a problem with money for thems who own these vehicles. Eggspecially when insurance companies are involved and want my their money back if paying out. But there is a problem with peeps thinking wot happens int movies can be applied to real life. We're never going to have a wip round and call in the services of Bob.

    I'm not sure how far away the op's problem is from theft. I'm wondering how much proof there is it was taken to be fixed and returned as opposed to sold. Contracts... Invoice... Collection paperwork... These peeps have obviously done this before and know how to get away with it. Even if the car is gone in time for the first complaint as standard practice.

    Sorry I wasn’t discussing “how to”, I was just pointing out that in these sorts of situations money is your friend and if you mix in the right circles anything is possible. It wouldn’t be viable in this sort of thing as anyone who could afford to sort it out would be driving a new car! These people target those who are unlikely to afford the legal and court costs to deal with it afterwards
