The letters and numbers had been altered, prompting her to take a closer look.

She found that her license plate had a foil with a completely new set of characters and numbers stuck on it.

Now she believes her vehicle may have been set up as a potential target for thieves.

Charlotte told the Manchester Evening News: “Everyone says it was prepared to be stolen.

“We just don’t know, it’s pretty scary. It’s supposed to be a nice area.”

The counterfeit license plate is not registered with the DVLA and therefore would not show up on any ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) technology.

She believes the would-be opportunists may have planned to break into her apartment and take her but were somehow “disturbed.”

Charlotte’s car was previously stolen when thugs broke into her home, stole the keys and drove away with the vehicle.

She said: “Having my car stolen was a huge inconvenience. I can’t deal with it again.”

Charlotte has since installed a tracker in her vehicle and now keeps it in a different driveway.
