Car finance woes as catalytic converters become new target

If it’s not number plates being stolen, it’s our lovely bonnet emblems, but now it seems the criminals of the UK are after something much less accessible

If it’s not number plates being stolen, it’s our lovely bonnet emblems, but now it seems the criminals of the UK are after something much less accessible – our catalytic converters. Over 2,300 catalytic converters have been stolen in the south and east of England, which represents a quadruple increase in the whole of the UK last year.

Car finance drivers will need to think about these new issues, as the Police have started their investigations. According to reports, the criminals are stealing the cats because of the hike in scrap metal prices.

Just another thing for us to worry about, then!
