Is it this one

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Split-Scre ... 46047567fd

It is a trade seller with the address at the bottom. Wouldn't be the first stolen bus to turn up on a scabby industrial in Essex

Oh and in case it disappears, the ebay seller was selling on behalf of someone else

Any questions please contact Darryl on 07864112267

But unfortunately the person who won the auction has already picked it up as the ebay seller has left him feedback

The buyer (who has never sold anything or bought anything before) but the police would be able to get Ebay to hand over the details

Are some people just bloody thick or completely brazen?

Selling a split that's stolen on eBay where all split owners look if something is stolen?

Be interesting to hear the outcome!

I suspect the 'buyer' is just a front to fence the van.

Note the email of the 'seller' is rhona-13@hotmail.co.uk

Won't want to email our opinions of the thieving scum to that address would we?

If the police aren't interested then a few baseball bats might come in handy in Essex :wink:

I was thinking,

isn't the seller guilty of handling stolen goods ? even if he didn't know it. you can prove to the police the van is yours so then the presure would be on the seller to give the "friend" up or be found guilty.

or is that to much like justice for that to work :?
