    Ive heard of that kind of thing in relation to Type Rs. One of the downsides of having a car that unsavoury characters are attracted to I guess. My doors are locked all the time when I'm sat in it and I rarely open my windows out of fear of being dragged out of it.

    Default Last night in Manchester.

    Was coming home last night from the Wigan / Salford rugby match. Noticed that my fuel light was on whilst coming along the east lancs rd. No way was I going to stop at any garages near Salford. Got to Belle Vue Hyde Rd, the Texaco Station was empty so i pulled in signs say Pay First. Still noone on forcourt I start puting my pin in the machine, Smack head looking white guy apears trys looking over my shoulder backed up with a large Afro/Carabean in combat gear. Asian guy at desksays i havn't pressed enter (i had) pushes machine back through. The smack head one thrws a twentyinto the hole and says get me five on the phone card. Mega alarms start ringing in my head Combat man edges closer. Asian say you will have to do it again pushes machine back throughHeroin makes a grab for it, I grab my card and turn to run 2other afros in combat facing me I kick one in the balls and skirt past them. I manage to get in my car and do a smoking start bouncing acoss the pavement /grass vergelookin my rear view to see a Vauxhall estate with a strange reg and odd front lights start following. Ikeep slghtly ahead till the big round about for the Moterways I make as if going towards Stkport but turn of on Hyde Junk they spin theres and follow, Iput my foot down good style and leave for dust don't stop till i get to Glossop call at local Dibble who say go home and cancel your card. Kin close call thought i lost my car and my money so whatch out for similar scams( i am sure the garage guys were in on it was much to pat for my liking.

    ^^^Sounds like a right nightmare fella^^^
    Last night I reached for my liquid Viagra and accidentally swigged from a bottle of Tippex. I woke this morning with a huge correction.

    Bloody hell mate. Worth remembering that the fuel light can get you a good 40 miles if you take it easy.

    Yep but was getting very near empty, and the place looked deserted so took a stupid risk. Obviously it's somthing these scum have done time and time again. Feel realy tempted to call their bluf sendin a ringer and be ready with a big crew take the fu*kers out big stlye. Bit old for it myself but my brother knows some very handy lads. I am seriously thinking of doing it

    What would you do? leave it let someone else suffer and maybe get realy hurt? , learn by your mistake? or do somthing proactive like teach these scum a leson they will never forget, They havn't a clue who i am and i think they need teaching, but then i am f*cking angry at the moment , because i know i would not have given up my keys or card and therefore know what the consecences would/could have been

    If you are convinced that the staff member was involved then inform the Head Office of the garage network.

    The desk guy was definitely in on it.

    Think about their miserable, scum hole lives though.
    Smack head addict: is as good as dead anyway, and no one will miss him because he'll have robbed or f*cked over anyone who's ever tried to help him out.
    Sidekick: no less dismal, being managed by smack head. Neither of them can have any employment potential because if they had, even a minimum wage job would give a better and more reliable yield than that mindless, high risk carry on.

    Muppet on the desk: is spending his days working in a garage for a start, and if thats not pointless and soul destroying enough, he's all entangled with these scroats, whether intended or not, who'll never let him shake them off as long as theres any chance of eeking any cash out of the passing visitors. Plus he's at a fixed location, so his days of operation will be numbered, either by the local bigger fish or the police.

    For all of them, wrapping their doomed fingers around your cash card and your steering wheel is the only way they can ever sample what you've got, but the second they take it, its rotten, because its not and never will be theirs, and they know it, even if they do briefly 'get away' with it. To them, everyone around them has more, they're desperate. For you, it can and will be yours again and again, your own (earned) pad, your own (earned) car, friends, family, dignity.

    The first three you were luckily able to save (bargain) by acting fast and having your health intact, but you protect your invaluable body and the last three by NOT going after them. Save your evil tokens for if and when someone comes after the last three.
