Once you report a vehicle stolen, a simple check on this site confirms whether a vehicle is stolen or not. Mine was listed on there as soon as I made my report. It would be real easy to check VIN's before dismantling begins. That said, nobody's perfect, scrap is a very competitive business, and they did what I asked to fix the mistake. I wish everybody could get their cars back, but this is going to continue as long as people are desparate, and metal is worth more then paper.
