Hi All,

So as s##tty as it is my car was on the receiving end of a hit and run. About a week later I saw a post in a FaceBook marketplace for my area that listed the smashed up hitrun car for sale, without rego. I didn't realise this was the car until an hour later. When I went back to the page the sellers items were deleted and the profile picture and privacy changed. I think I remember the seller but their profiles all cloistered up now. I contacted the admin who could only find listings that they deleted and not user deleted ones.

Is there any way at all to find this deleted car ad so I can hand the information over to the Police?

Also, FaceBook is f##king s##t to contact. You basically can't contact them at all whatsoever...okay well you can check a few boxes to report things but you never get a reply. In the last few hours of trying to crack this and bring the A-hole to justice, I've found a heap of people in the same boat who have found their stolen items for sale but the sellers post is deleted. F##K you S##tBook!

Please give me good news that I can track this ad down!

Facebook only exists because people are too spoiled and lazy to write letters to each other.

Actually, writing letters are the last private communication we have left.

I have heard of cashed pages/files or something like that. Basically like copies of the internet are made and kept.

I don't know how to access them but some people on here do. I'm sure someone will be along here to point you in the right direction.

Yes, the images and webpages might be in the caches of your web browser. First thing, find where your web browser stores it cache of images and files, immediately take a backup copy - just copy it to another directory or zip/tar it up.

If it is Firefox, enter "about:cache" in the web page link textbox.
"If you're using Internet Explorer, here's what you do.
In the Tools menu, choose Internet Options.
On the General tab, under "Temporary Internet Files," hit the "Settings" button.
From the Settings pop-up, click the "View Files" button. IE will launch an Explorer window into the directory where it stores files in its cache. Browse through them to find your photograph, if it's still there.
