It is tempting to buy cheap goods, but the real price of your bargain is a victim of crime – an elderly lady has been burgled, a child has had their bike stolen or another car has been broken into.
So the next time you’re browsing a boot fair, online auction site or offered cheap goods elsewhere, consider this. £20 for a mobile device or games console might seem like a great deal, and it is – the person who it was stolen from paid a lot more.
If you aren't sure where the item you're buying has come from, please don’t buy it.
Report to us where and when you saw these goods for sale.
