Why would someone put black tape on /my/ number plates?

I noticed something very odd this evening. I walked to the car and was admiring it (it had its annual clean on Sunday since I was too ashamed for the French exchange to see our car as it normally is - a near-biological teeming bucket of child-detritus and lego). Something was odd. The registration number was different.

On closer inspection I saw that someone had changed the appearance of the numbers using carefully-cut and placed black masking tape. We'd gone from AV59xxx to AV58xxx.

Why would anyone bother?

If I had done it (to escape paying the Congestion Charge? Not be traced by speed cameras?) then I'd understand. But why would someone take the time and effort to change someone else's registration?

I spose there's a small evil laugh in waiting until I'm stopped by the Police ANPR cameras and asked why I'm not black Volkswagen Gold 1896cc (that the DVLA computer thinks is linked to the amended registration)? Maybe is an art 'intervention'? 

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to know.
