Police warn over West Leeds car thefts

Police have issued a warning over a scam in West Leeds which sees thieves driving off in vehicles they’re claiming to buy.

Leeds West police highlighted the rise in vehicle theft this week and produced a set of guidelines to prevent cars being stolen. A spokesperson said:

“In particular it involves individuals purporting to purchase vehicles advertised online. Upon viewing the vehicle advertised, the suspect drives the vehicle away without making payment.

“When selling your vehicle ensure that you don’t hand over keys/possession until you have received payment.

“Ensure you advertise your vehicle on a reputable site, particularly those that offer seller/buyer protection.”
