It all started with Philip Wright answering a For Sale ad in a local newspaper. Wright jumped at the chance to take advantage of what he thought was a motivated seller” looking to off-load a clean, low-mileage personal watercraft. Within 24 hours’ time, Wright stood watching at the local police hauled his newly purchased PWC. Unknowingly, Wright had purchased a stolen watercraft, one taken from a home only a couple hours’ drive from his own home.
Even though Wright had attempted to do his due diligence, he was unable to discover that his purchase was indeed a stolen PWC. From that point on, he vowed to help others from the same fate, and created the Worldwide Stolen PWC Database. Just this year, the Stolen PWC Database went global. They announced, “we finally became a global service, earning us a new name and the title of ‘the only worldwide, dedicated stolen PWC database’. When we know it’s stolen, we tell the world about it. We are the only worldwide, dedicated stolen personal watercraft (PWC) database. We hold up to the minute theft reports of stolen PWC and trailers from around the world.”
Using the Worldwide Stolen PWC Database’s real-time, worldwide database makes checking any PWC and/or trailer easy for individuals and law enforcement, marine and tracking agencies. As they announce, “With more and more stolen PWC being taken out of their own state, county or even country, there’s nowhere in the world for the PWC thieves to hide from us. With data collected from insurance companies, law enforcement authorities, marine agencies, main dealers and private individuals, our database of registered stolen PWC and trailers, makes the reselling of stolen PWC extremely high risk for any thief.”
