S Rizvi

A person identifying himself (probably falsely) as S Rizvi  failed to return equipment to Run TV and has been contacting other facilities houses, attempting to hire the same kit of 5D Cameras and EF lenses.

We would advise anybody who is contacted by Mr Rizvi to contact Frances at Run TV on 0207 636 0006

Important note:  It is entirely possible that ‘S Rizvi’ is a pseudonym, or that the real Mr Rizvi has been the victim of identity theft.  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, but this has NOTHING WHATEVER TO DO WITH ANYONE OTHER THAN THE PERSON PICTURED HERE.

VMI Burglary

VMI had a ‘Mission Impossible’ – style break in over the weekend by burglars making their way over the railway lines and subsequently entering their building through the roof.  Happily, the systems activated the alarm and the police and the loss was relatively small and many big expensive cameras and lenses were not stolen.

This is not yet a comprehensive list but please be aware in case you are offered any of these for sale.  It is highly likely that some DSLR lenses were also stolen but this is not yet confirmed.
