That'll probably be worth about 300 - 500 to buy.

I wouldn't worry about blanking out reg numbers in pictures unless you are including a phone number of the person who owns it....
this all started with cars for sale on ebay where car cloners would call or contact the owner if the vehicle and pretend to be interested in buying it. They would then try to extract as much information about the vehicle/owner as possible ie; phone number, address where the vehicle is registered, name of owner etc..... Much easier to clone that way...

I saw something not too long ago that the most expensive plate ever sold was the number 'K1NGS' I cant remember what it sold for but think it was around 100000K

If you stuck what ever plate you liked on your car, how many time would you need to get stopped before the fines came to the value of something like 'K1NGS' - loads cheaper to pay fines me thinks.

Not sure you get points, I know someone who change one letter and got away with it for years.
