US Plumber Surprised to See Truck in The Hands of Syrian Rebels
A United States plumber is shock to find his work vehicle in the hands of extremist miles away from his homeland.
Mark Oberholtzer initially sold his truck last year only to see pictures of the truck on twitter being used by Syrian rebels.
unfortunately, he didn't remove the Company's name off the truck and also his business phone number giving people the impression that he intentionally transferred the truck to the rebels.
And ever since the picture surfaced online, he has been receiving loads of unusual calls and threats.
His truck, with its original decal for "Mark 1 Plumbing" and a phone number for the business, is reportedly being used by the militant group to transport an anti-aircraft gun.
The original tweet, below, was posted to an account associated with the Jabhat Ansar al-Din militant group based in Syria. Oberholtzer traded in his truck to a Texas dealership that then placed it up for auction in 2013.

"We had no intentions or no idea this would even happen," Oberholtzer said in the video by local television station KHOU. "Something that we would use to pull trailers and things like that, I mean, to now a truck to be used in terror, I mean that's crazy."
In an interview with KHOU, Oberholtzer said he's had to take his phones off the hook due to angry and threatening calls from across the United States
