    I've just received notification from comfort about thefts in the area.
    Hate to say it, but fairly well populated by our travelling friends.

    Frightening as we live in Surrey also, not heard of any MH thefts round here, are you in The GU area?
    Glad you got it back, bet you have now taken extra theft precautions?

    In answer to your question on another thread @jezport and @eddievanbitz this must carry some weight.

    Boy am I becoming paranoid or what. For almost 30 years I worked shift most of which were nights so now I'm retired I have difficulty sleeping at night. In the light of all the publicity surrounding Fiat thefts I put a wifi camera in the M/h and because I am no longer a "spring chicken" I have recently purchased what can only be described as a lethal weapon, whether I could actually hurt someone or not....I don't know? at the moment physically it would not be a problem, mentally is a different question So my point is during my working life I spent most of my sleeping hours awake and most of my waking hours sleeping......and nowt's altered!! apart from the the Police now want us to intervene if they are being attacked:eek:

    What the hells happening or is it just me..no no don't answer that;)

    I nearly added a fourth when I got my email. But quickly realised that somebody else would do it anyway.

    It would appear that thieves now have the tools and ability to circumvent Fiat security, just as they have had for a number of years, with Fords. It was only a matter of time.
