If I buy stolen car parts on eBay with­out know­ing, will I get in trou­ble?

Al­most cer­tainly not, be­cause in most cases the po­lice have no way of trac­ing the parts back to a stolen ve­hi­cle. It’s more of a moral is­sue - if you bought parts from Fid­di­more’s eBay store, for ex­am­ple, you have helped fund clas­sic theft. If you be­lieve you have bought stolen parts, you should re­port it to the po­lice.

So how do I avoid buy­ing from thieves?

The best way is to only buy from rep­utable com­pa­nies who’ve been es­tab­lished for many years, have pro­fes­sional premises and ex­em­plary eBay feed­back.

What if I sus­pect some­thing I see on eBay is stolen?

Call 101 to re­port it to the po­lice and ask them to in­form eBay via its Safety Cen­tre
