Luxury car 'ringing' gang jailed - Telegraph

The Daily Telegraph tells of a gang of "ringers" who targeted luxury cars, posing as prospective purchasers and stealing the cars on test drives then changing the vehicles' identities and providing them with false documents. They used the identities of cars that had been exported, and obtained replacement logbooks from DVLA to complete the deception.

Police recovered some 40 cars worth £1.5 million, along with a lot of cash and blank keys. Three of the gang members were sentenced to between six and eight years (the longest sentence being imposed on the mastermind of the operation, who was already in prison and using an illicit mobile phone to run the ringing scam) and seven more members to a total of 20 years between them.
