Third group - "criminals." These removed, usually both numbers. Unscrew very professionally and carefully. Rooms used for criminal purposes - a car with stolen numbers can be, for example, rob a bank or knock a person. You can hang them on the stolen car and try to overtake, and then sell it, etc. It is clear that they are unlikely to feel the pangs of conscience and decide to return the stolen back.
Group Four - last. "Extortioners." Perhaps this is the only option that you have every chance to get their registration numbers ago. Actually, for the sake of all and afoot. The removed number plates you will find a note with the terms of repayment. Its amount and the method of transmission rates and money, depending on the imagination and greed scam.
