To complement the efforts of the Government on crime prevention, specifically car theft which has been on the rise in recent times, legitcar.ng was developed. This is our humble attempt to tackle this challenge. Most of these cars stolen from people are still resold to unsuspecting members of the public, consequently we strive to save potential car buyers from the dangers of purchasing stolen vehicles. We do that by enabling potential car buyers to search our vast database of stolen vehicles in Nigeria and verify we do not have their potential cars listed as one. The site notifies them if the vehicle is listed as stolen, and urges them to contact the person registered as the owner on our website.
So on the side, we still try to reunite people who have their cars registered on our website as stolen, with their cars. That is why we usually urge people who have lost their cars either through theft, or armed robbery, to register the details of such on our website, AFTER THEY MUST HAVE MADE A FORMAL REPORT TO THE POLICE, so that we can contact them with a possible location once a match is made. All these we do free of charge.
The potentials inherent in having such a service available to all Nigerians cannot be overemphasised. Apart from its ability to reduce car theft to the barest minimum by blocking the resale of stolen vehicles to unsuspecting members of the public, it also has the potentials to create the much needed employment to youths, and make future entrepreneurs. Furthermore, it will minimize the time and scarce resources spent on attempting to recover stolen vehicles.
We believe we have made clear what we set out to do with this service, and look forward to getting your suggestions and recommendations. Thanks.
