My name is Elspeth and I work as an Assistant Producer at Wild Pictures ( ), a TV company specialises in producing high quality factual programmes for all the major UK and international broadcasters.

Wild Pictures are currently making a documentary for ITV 1 following the London Regional Fraud Team conducting an investigation into E-bay/Auto-trader/Gumtree fake vehicle scams.

As part of our documentary we are really hoping to speak to victims to help build a picture of the impact fraud has on individuals, their families and their businesses. At this stage, Wild Pictures are seeking only a preliminary background chat. The information passed on would be treated as entirely confidential and would not constitute an agreement to be filmed or participate in the programme.

We fully understand that this can be difficult to talk about, but would appreciate the opportunity to speak to anyone affected by this crime. We strongly believe that victim testimony can be incredibly important in raising public awareness and therefore hopefully preventing others from being targeted. We want our films to illustrate the human cost of what is often wrongly described as a ‘victimless crime’.

If you know anyone who is prepared to talk to us on an off- the- record basis, please call me on 0203 227 4938 or email

Many thanks,
