PIC: Garda share images from what they call ‘International forger of the year....NOT!’
Crime doesn't pay. Especially not when your crime is posted online for everyone to laugh at.
Listen, clearly not every criminal is a mastermind, but even the most basic of glances at this would give just about everyone pause.
Sometimes you just have to sit back and think "Hmmm... this really isn't going to work".
But no, the person responsible for this figured that this would be just fine, doing the kind of slap-dash, rush-job you might expect from someone in 4th class who realised on the bus into school in the morning that they had forgotten to write an essay and are hastily putting one together at the last minute.
However, in the case of this master-criminal, not only didn't they have their car tax or properly NCT'd, but went so far as to alter their insurance disc, and with as little effort as is humanly possible.

Congrats to the traffic police who somehow must have managed to arrest the culprit while still doubled over laughing at the low-grade forgery effort.
