    its not hard to cover youre plates when posting online
    It's not just 'you' posting online though. Every show you go to people photograph 'your' car and put it on the 'net. Or in a petro station , by the side of the road, parked on your own property or even when you are out driving.

    Re the application for old books dependent on what they are DVLA sometimes ask for photos of what appear at first glance to be weird items . However they are carefully selected so as not be be able to ( generally) find a suitable photo online.

    If you move house and do not update your V5C's you are leaving yourself wide open to this scam.

    I get that, but they were not applying for v5,s for cars that are on the road now or have been very recently.

    The op hasnt come back to this thread,so were lacking all the info.

    Im always amazed at the amount of folks that dont even change v5,s into their own name after they have bought something.or wont change details prior to work being done.

    Or DVLA can mess up. I'm looking at something where the DVLA may have sent two V5c's to an owner who then apparently sold two vehicles (or one vehicle and one V5c).

    Stupid question Kev (and probably not a good idea to answer it on an open forum) but how do they get the VIN?

    Easy, very very easy .Just like finding out who owns the car and where they live. DVLA will sell you their grandmother if there's a profit in it.

    Back in the 80s I applied for a log book for a van that had been off the road since 61, I knew and could prove the history but the DVLA sent a man to view it, no problem at all, he even took away the operators licence that was in the window as proof...... no worries but when the log book came back they had cocked up the reg number.
    Instead of *** **7 it came back *** **Y...... Not bad for a 1953 Austin Van.
