Gym Owner 'Traumatised' After Being Sent Shocking Racist Slur On DVLA Form

Gym Owner 'Traumatised' After Being Sent Shocking Racist Slur On DVLA Form

A man was left 'traumatised' after he was sent DVLA logbooks with parts of his name replaced by racial slurs.

Marvin Greaves of Oldham, Greater Manchester, received the 'depressing' package despite saying he doesn't even own a car or have a driver's licence.

The logbook sent to him with the sickening racial slurs was addressed to 'Marvin Black N****r P***y', and he says he later received a second DVLA logbook which called him 'Marvin Chocolate N****r Greaves'.

The 40-year-old gym owner received the disgusting deliveries at his place of work, and thinks the papers were sent in connection to 'a stolen vehicle or someone's been pulled'.

Something worrying Marvin is that whoever was behind it has to be 'someone who knows me' as the person responsible 'knows my address'.

Marvin explained that when he opened the package sent to him he quickly realised it was a logbook and spotted the name was laden with racial slurs.

He said: "When I read it, I was traumatised by it. I was very stressed and depressed over it.

"I've been feeling so stressed about it. It's racial. I'm black myself. It's definitely racist and somebody has authorised that for it to be sent to my gym address."

There has been a huge outpouring of support for Marvin following the traumatising ordeal, with one person describing the racial slur-laden logbooks as 'absolutely vile behaviour'.

Another said it was 'disgusting' that the culprit would do something so awful to another person, while someone else branded the person who sent the horrible letters a 'brain dead d**khead'.

He also wants to know how the logbooks were allowed to be sent out in the first place when they had racial slurs on them.

Pointing out that 'someone's got to authorise it and do the checks', Marvin is wondering how the logbooks plastered with racial slurs could have been posted without anyone spotting the issue.

He called the DVLA to talk to them about how a logbook full of racial slurs could have been sent to him, explaining that he didn't know anything about the vehicle they were for.

The DVLA have since taken the false information off their records and are investigating, anything they find will be turned over to the police.

A spokesperson for the DVLA said: "These malicious and fraudulent applications were made by an as yet unknown third party and we have removed this information from our records.

"We are urgently investigating and will pass our findings onto the police."
