    I'm afraid that in today's economic climate, even folks who wouldn't dream of doing anything illegal in the past, may be tempted by an "easy score."

    Then you have the folks who make a "living" off thievery having to steal more to keep up with increasing costs.

    All the more reason to make sure your stuff is secured from theft.

    Thats not the only kind of thieves out there either. Got to be careful on CL too, lots of people out there willing to take you for a ride if they can get away with it.

    See here:

    WELL FOLKS I GOT TOOK! I answered an ad to a person who wanted a 6' rototiller for his tractor. I had one and emailed him and he called me. He talked a very good game and even put me off to come and see it the first time. We had several phone calls back and forth (cell phone of course) and I told him I wanted a rear tine garder tiller. He claimed to have one but wanted to make sure it worked well before he could bring it (postponed for an additional day). He finally showed up with the digger. He talked a very good game, appeared to be a good ole boy real down to earth! He was driving a late model F-250 Ford diesel (2006 or better) grey in color and pulling a blue dual axel trailer with 24" side bodies and tailgate. He claimed to be from the Belton, S.C. area. After taking the tiller off the trailer and helping him load the big rototiller, he paid me the balance of $450.00 in the form of a company check. The company was Hamiliton Equiptment Co. out of Newberry S.C. (non-existant company I have later learned!) These checks were in a 3-ring binder and looked to be legit! He is dark haired and heavy set White American! Is anybody mising a Scotts Rear tine tiller with a broken drive belt? If so I may have it! Thanks- Alan hope no one else gets taken by him!


    I didn't post the CL link, I think that is frowned upon by the mod's here. I hope both of these crooks get caught.
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!

    I hope they can be located, and the thieves put in jail.

    stolen and another one was missing his 3-PT-Hitch, i believe its only
    going to get worse.

    Story to tell about thieves.Had a200' power cord stolen from job site.Cost
    about $800.00. Found out who stole it called police and local scrap yards
    sure enough he showed up with it about noon owner did not buy.Called
    police again in that district gave his name address truck description.Said they
    wouldn't pick him up because i couldn't make positive id he striped the cable.
    Moral of the story thieves have more rights and loop holes than honest
    citizens. Framer

    Sounds like plenty of positive ID of the suspect to me. They could charge him and make it his problem to get the case dismissed.
