    Yeah, they're definitely an up and coming band.

    'and I played this record last week, but I'm playing it again because I've since discovered it was meant to be played at 33rpm'

    If you know the eBay store, can you send them a message and ask them to stop using private property to take their photos? Tell them you wanted to give them the opportunity to make a choice rather than going to the police considering some of the vehicles in question aren't road worthy.

    Was expecting this reply, but not as soon as the very first post, well done. :rolleyes: As it happens I can't actually see the car park from our flat.

    The issue is more than just them taking photos and ******* off, its that there has already been a load of oil or coolant spilt all over the blockwork, and a piece of a car was left in the middle of the car park the other day. Finally, when they take the pictures they do it in the entrance, which has already blocked a couple of other residents (one was a young girl who lives on her own, and she was quite intimidated by it) from getting in and out, and obviously they don't care and just carry on. I've also now learned that they are quite well known in the area and have been on the councils radar for a while.


    Yes, there are signs saying private, residents only etc. Never been a barrier though, that's what we (the residents) are not thinking is needed.


    At least someone gets it, thank you. :)


    This is ongoing.


    Cheers, from speaking to others, this is our general thinking too.

    Well you're very trusting of the Motors forum to share their eBay IDs :p

    Doesn't really matter though does it. The accounts are only a couple of months old and no doubt they've have many before these and I'm pretty sure one of then isn't called Fred. ;)

    I, and other residents have young families and don't want to escalate it to the point where they know where we live and could cause damage etc. As said, I've now learned they are well know by the authorities.

    These will be the sort of scum that will make the OP's life an absolute misery if he approaches them.Sad but true.

    Yes, will only end badly. These sort of stupid things soon escalate. They’ll probably move on elsewhere possibly or trading standards might catch up with them in a few years :rolleyes: You may even end up on an episode of Watchdog or Don’t Get Done, Get Dom! :D

    Buy (but don't pay) each car on ebay until he stops.
