Counterfeit Vehicle Parts & Software
Drawing on Automotive in-depth industry know-how, we specialise in Automotive Intellectual Property matters such as illicit vehicle parts and software. We investigate Automotive Intellectual Property crimes, often referred to as “Fake Car Parts” from start to finish by tracing illegal manufactures to litigation with removal of on-line shops selling counterfeit car parts, software and take-down of websites and stores hosting illicit and copyright automotive content. At Digitpol’s IP Crime team we conduct investigations in cooperation with Law Enforcement agencies followed up by covert purchasing of counterfeit goods. We conduct forensic analysis of seized illegal goods, providing detailed evidence and comprehensive analysis including source code, which has led to criminal convictions in several countries.
Stolen Vehicle Investigation
Digitpol’s Stolen Vehicle Crime unit operates globally with offices in The Netherlands, Hong Kong, West Balkans and CIS. Our experts have decades of experience with investigation of vehicle crime, stolen vehicle tracing and repatriation of stolen vehicles. When Digitpol is engaged to recover a stolen vehicle, we operate on an hourly rate. We don’t charge any additional fees, only the time involved. We operate with fairness and transparency.

We conduct forensic analysis on automotive GPS systems for Law Enforcement Agencies and testing for OEM’s. We specialise in the examination of built-in OEM GPS Satellite Navigation systems, known as Infotainment or Telematics systems. Our forensic team has been conducting research since 2009 on the investigative techniques to acquire forensic data from embedded vehicle GPS systems. Together with system manufactures we have built a solid and robust method to recover forensic data.
Insurance Fraud Investigation
We specialise in Digital Investigation of Motor Insurance Fraud. We are experts in the analysis of “staged collisions” where a vehicle has been reported as crashed, however the collision never happened. We deploy digital forensic methods to undercover the traces stored in vehicle modules. We recover the last events such as any collisions and can identify the vehicle's engine temperature at the time of the collision, the KM reading and the time and date the collision took place. These parameters often assist claims handlers to solve or verify claims. In some cases a fraudulent claim can be detected.
KEYLESS entry car theft is gaining proliferation across Europe and Asia as more criminals are using radio transmitters to perform ‘relay’ car hacks to steal high end vehicles. Car Crime Criminals are exploiting the vulnerabilities of keyless entry system using pairs of radio transmitters by capturing the signal from the car’s fob. The crime can happen close to the owner without their knowledge or by a relay attack.
Keyless entry allows drivers to open and start the vehicle without even touching the fob or even removing it from their pocket. Fraudulent claims whereby the owner provides a key to the insurance company of the reported stolen motor vehicle are growing. To verify the key, Digitpol can check if the key belonged to the reported stolen vehicle. In some cases the key was not from the reported vehicle.
