MK7 Volkswagen Golf (AJK8033) in Cloned Car Case Abandoned in Kota Damansara?

Abandoned cars up for grabs? Apparently this one is a spanking good looking red Volkswagen Golf MK7, not some old beat up junk. One would wonder why would such a nice car be abandoned if it were not a stolen car used for high speed getaways. What is even more worrying is that these cars may have been resold or re-purposed, somehow acquiring roadtaxes or legitimate number plates.

One of our dear readers, Mat Cendana reported that there was a red MK7 Volkswagen Golf that looks strikingly similar to the one involved in the AJK8033 Volkswagen Golf cloned and duplicated number plate case.

Great that you have written a post about this. It also offers me the opportunity to add the following. There was a red VW, almost similar to the one on the left, that was left abandoned off Jalan Camar, Kota Damansara leading to the Villa Damansara/Sierra Damanasara housing area: http://s1294.photobucket.com/user/MatCendana/media/Social%20Media/VW1_zps5f4e003b.jpg.html It was left there from early this month, if I'm not mistaken, and only taken away some days ago. I had suspected that it might have been involved in a crime and was abandoned there, with the number plates taken off. I'm surprised the residents' associations here and the authorities didn't do anything immediately, until last week. Is this the same one as in your picture? If it isn't, then I'd bet there are a number of other similar VWs, and that there is an organised syndicate using this tactic of multiple number plates. The media and authorities need to investigate how serious this problem is, and who are involved. - Mat Cendana.
