The DVLA has warned those who are looking to sell their vehicles on line not to post a picture of the log sheet/ V5C as it puts you at risk from scammers stealing your identity.

When people are listing their vehicle on sites like Autotrader, it’s surprisingly common for people to share an image of the log book. However, few realise how easy it is for scammers to steal their identity, which can then leads to gaining access to the person’s bank accounts, or even forging fake number plates and ownership of another person’s car from the information.
