I block out my license plate because people on the internet search and take pictures for any number of reasons that end up on ebay and all over and you just never know what could happen. I personally don't make an effort on all pictures though.. I could care less mostly.

Anyone here been in the situation where your car was sold online without you knowing and you got tracked down by the license plate number in the picture and you had to legally give up your car? It has happened, and will happen again.

I guess we can come up with hypothetical situations all day but the funniest is poeple on the internet that are a total douchebag to others on the internet and give out personal information such as a license plate to find you. You never want to find out the power of the internet when it's not in your favor.

I don't see how this is possible.
I'm not giving up my vehicle without payment to me. It should be easy to prove fraud.
I don't have a problem with a picture with my license plate. What about the many thousands that see my plate when I'm on the street? What's to keep them from taking a picture then?

All comes down to comfort. Some people lock their doors when they go out some do not. Some people lock their doors when they are home some do not.

This will make some think I sound like a thief. The same will block their licence plates and some will not

Nothing... But If you give someone a reason to come after you though don't be surprised how they found you.

I will give some more food for thought.. Your car is your prized possession that you care enough about to post all over the internet for everyone to see and know what you have and what is worth what. Now, why would you want to let the whole wide world know where you live or where the car can be found?

Just think, it's like putting a lock on a glass door. It stops the honest people.

Block your plate or not, if anyone wanted to find you... they will anyway so..

Why purchase a car? Someone may take it...or even worse, you can have an accident. Cover all bases now.

Just in case you cannot read the plate here is another pic. I am sure someone on this forum will pay the $40-$50 dollars to do an "internet search" and find me. Lets see who does it first.
