International Stolen Car Database is an active database of stolen cars, boats, motorbikes, and trucks. Digitpol is responsible for the upkeep and registration of this Stolen Car Database and registers stolen, wanted, and embezzled vehicles for USA, Europe, Asia, Africa and Pacific, all vehicles listed in this database are wanted as stolen objects.
By registering a vehicle to the stolen car database, an alert including information about the vehicle is sent out across social media and is resent every few hours, the vehicles chassis number (VIN), Vehicle Identity Number, Make, Model, Color and License Plate will be listed on the first page of google as stolen. This is vital when a stolen car is shipped out of your country or is checked by customs, police or import authorities or potential buyers. If your car is reported to the local police, the serial number, VIN and license plate may not show up in a public Internet (google) search as stolen therefore this stolen vehicle database provides the public with additional resources to combat vehicle crime and increase the chances to recover a stolen vehicle.
It is proven that many buyers have searched a VIN online before buying a vehicle, therefore the existence of a vehicle in this database is vital to alert the police, customs, public, a potential buyer or a vehicle import / export office.

Stolen Vehicle Investigation Stats & Charts
The German Bundeskriminalamt uses the 2011 figures provided by the German association of insurance companies for the total economic damage on stolen motor vehicles: almost 260 million Euros. This amount represents only stolen vehicles (and not, for example, vehicles which are lost through fraud). The total economic damage is an increase of almost 1% compared to 2010 and a 19% increase compared to the average total amount of the previous 5 years. Moreover, the average individual claim was higher. This could be caused by an increased market value of the average car stolen or an indication of a trend in which motor vehicles with a higher value are targeted. @BKA
