  1. this has become such a common practice these days i became so angry last weekend when this thing happened to me i contacted this company and they recover my stolen identity info

  2. Problem is that most scrap metal collectors are gypsy families. NOT saying theyre therefore bad, but they do need regulating. People think Coventry has no gypsies, how wrong are you. Theres huge organised crime going on (not all gypsies are involved though) and arranged weddings within the families which pressures girls into unhappy, often violent, relationships. It really is an underworld.
