    hi all

    just beware I have just had a text message saying my name and to contact this number 07543545866, the gps tracker on my motorhome has been tampered with at a certain time. The guy answers his phone tracker europe. I told him I am not with this company, he said I will nick yours then. I have notified my company and the police. They have said its a scam BEWARE!!!!!!!

    there are a couple of questions

    This begs a couple of questions?

    1) how did he know you had a motor home?

    2) how did he know you had or did not have a tracker? (not many of us do)

    3) how did he know your phone number to text you and that is also part of 1) above.


    So what did the authorities say? .. have to be careful what I call police these days:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Was it a tracker company? Sounds more like a prospective thief trying to find out IF you had a tracker fitted.

    When buying trackers - do try and buy the ones that allow you to track yourself. That way, you can sign in and check for yourself - the tracker will notify you - and YOUR company would be the first to call!

    Name/Number could be gained from anywhere from your bins, to and advert and from Mobile Phone Directories to Databases purchased for a few hundred pounds.

    Definitely report it to Police, OFT, and trading standards.
