Buying a stolen vehicle isn’t much fun. And it’s not just a myth that stolen vehicles get snatched back and leave you out of pocket… it’s actually surprisingly common.
Even if you purchase a stolen vehicle and isn’t recovered immediately, you almost certainly won’t get to stay the vehicle for as long as you would possibly think – the police and insurer databases will quickly place a “stolen” marker thereon . And that means if you're taking the vehicle out on the roads it’ll get flagged by an ANPR camera, which can end in you being prosecuted.
