Someone using the (possibly false) name of Sakaria Abdallah Mohammed hired a large quantity of equipment from Darryl Wood in August 2019 and failed to return it.
He claimed that he himself had been robbed.
We are led to believe that the camera was sold way below its value to an individual who goes by the name B-Dot.
If you come across any of the following items or can assist in identifying any of these individuals, please contact Darryl at
smirror at internode dot on dot net or email us here at Xhire.
Note: It is possible that Mr Mohammed was the victim of identity theft, and that the documents used were either forged or stolen. Nothing on this site should in any way be taken as indicative of the guilt or innocence, (or the involvement in fraudulent activity), of anyone whose details are published here. There are other individuals with that name. The image above was taken from the identity documents supplied by the hirer, and may or may not depict the person who rented the equipment.

Only a few weeks after the previous fraudulent hire, thieves have once again targeted ProCentre on Friday 28th June.
Pro Centre took a call from ‘Nick at ‘Prolighting’ late on Friday urgently needing
2x 5D (didn’t specify the mark) and
2x Canon 50mm, which they changed to 85mm mid conversation.
This sounded suspicious so they called Prolighting – who do have a Nick, but Nick was away on that day. The PO number that was offered for the booking was a nonsense number.
The police were called and a taxi from a legitimate taxi company arrived supposedly to collect the goods – the delivery was supposed to go to 41 Mare street which is a previous Prolighting address.
The telephone number used for the booking was 07746 168 798.
If you have any information that may be useful, please contact Rob at Pro Centre on 020 7729 8822
On Monday 10th June. 2019 at 1430 Pro Centre received a visit from a well prepared and knowledgeable thief who made off with over £10,000 of kit.
The thieves used another company’s details – Gripvan (who are not at all involved).
1) On Friday they called ahead and identified themselves as Joe from Gripvan and in a self-assured manner booked 2x 1DX mkII, 2x 70-200mm, 2x 50mm 1.2 – offering a current GripVan PO number as confirmation.
2) On Monday a driver arrived in a what we now know to be an older and since replaced style of Gripvan T-Shirt quoting the job number, presenting a PDA with collection information detailing the kit and GripVan’s address and then patiently waited for the kit be brought out. He was calm, collected and did nothing to arouse suspicion.
3) He then left on foot, CCTV loses them about 30 meters from the front door.
The items stolen were:
Canon 1DX MKII – #063012000498
Canon 1DX MKII – #1530160000095
Canon 70-200 MKIII – #6800003218
Canon 70-200 MIII – #6700002288
Canon 50mm 1.2 – #9730590
Canon 50mm 1.2 – #4362534
Below are images of the person who collected.
If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of these items or the person who collected, please contact Rob at Pro Centre on email@example.com
