steals Twister memory sticks sent to overseas members
Alongside is a photo of the package that reached our V8 member in
Australia - you can see the empty plastic bag is still stapled to
the inside back of the "greetings card" which we use to
deliver the memory stick and peovide physical protection for the Twister
in transit. Top right in the photo you can see the envelope opened
by the recipient, but note the envelope flap was taped down firmly
with several strips of tape and then two blue airmail stickers stuck
on top. The odd thing is the Australian member could see no signs
of entry via the flap or elsewhere on the envelope. The jagged cut
along the top edge was made as our fellow member cut open the envelope
hoping to find his set of V8NOTES on a Twister. Sadly it had vanished!
reports of stolen Twister memory sticks from airmail large letters
sent to overseas members
An extraordinary development over the last four weeks has been
the theft of Twister memory sticks with sets of workshop notes
each sent to three overseas members. When they arrived by airmail
the members in Spain, Canada and Australia found, on opening
their Large Letter containing a stout "greetings card"
inside which was stapled a small plastic bag containing the
Twister, it had vanished! How the thief got into the Large Letter
is a mystery because the envelope showed very little sign of
having been opened. Clearly it was a determined thief - but
why on earth would a scumbag like that want to steal a small
memory stick from an airmail package?
As each airmail item was going to an overseas members located
in a different country, the suspicion is the theft from each
airmail item was carried out in the UK as those airmail items
went through the Royal Mail postal system in the UK. Has anyone
seen this type of theft before?
V8 webmaster is now creating an online system to send the set
of workshop notes as an online files download.
