    It would appear his Twitter account has been suspended :rotfl:

    Now which one of the addresses linked to his domain names is the right one - I really feel like a tonne of horse poo needs delivering there ;)

    I just wonder if the Police found this, when investigtaing him for offences in 2011/12?

    Could it be that Aidan is out on licence from prison? If so, this parking scam could see him being sent back pretty swiftly just, when it seems, he has become a father.

    I thought I would just let you all know I spoke to the Council and Trading Standards today, and am due to give them more details tomorrow. I've also spoken to the reporter, as requested above. Having seen how this has developed, I'll also call 101 tomorrow. So far, it doesn't seem any of my immediate neighbours have been caught out, so that's good news.

    I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped me on this thread. I can't believe how much you found out in such a short time and really appreciate all your time, effort and help.

    If he's so intent on self employment, he could always set himself up as a freelance consultant to the parking skimdustry. I'm sure UKPC could use his expertise right now!

    What a toe rag! I hope they sling the book at him as an example to any other chavs thinking of jumping on the bandwagon of screwing the British public.

    The suspect was an easy target - he left too many clues to his on-line presence. Private parking scams are fodder for any newspaper - local or national. It just took one phone call to The Plymouth Herald, who spoke to 'Aidan' and he admitted everything, so no problem writing the story.

    The Police have been informed directly too - I rang them at around 2am today as all the evidence pointed to the fact that 'Aidan' was convicted of sexual offences against minors and that he was working as a delivery driver for Domino's. Aidan admitted to the news reporter that he is the same 'Aidan' convicted of sexual offences.

    National papers are interested in this too.

    He may have been an easy target, but a target is no good if there aren't snipers prepared to use their skills to take the target down. I think that this incident shows the absolute dedication and determination of those involved - and others who have spend their time and skills in other situations - and how the work of a relatively small number of good guys is making a real difference.

    Yesterday was his first and only day, slamming tickets on cars. Today he got dunked by more people than tickets he issued.

    Exactly the same situation with UKPC and their scam time-stamps. Sharp eyed people spotted those obvious shadow anomalies and other discrepancies, even though the PPC claimed their system was infallible. Power to the people!

    The Internet generates a lot of fraud but it also allows fraud to be identified very quickly. It was stumbling across Parking Prankster's discussion on that fraud that got me interested in the whole parking fraud industry.
