  1. so he should tax evasion is a very serious issue and you can get a reward for that if he is convicted on ur evidence. It all come back to TS if they did their job they would be a lot less traders doing it.
  2. Amazing the lengths they will go very similart as they told me of mileage difference after i had layed deposit and put it on receipt when i picked up maybe out to be a years miles differences basically but he thoughtt he could cover himself by doing this. He knew the real difference buty just pleaded he didnt know to obtain the valuation. They are becoming more clever how they do it now.
  3. Mot run out june 11th so i couldnt leave as it would of been illegal so that would be my argument lol, i intend to repair what i can ie the starter i cant afford the rest. I dont trust the trader as he is lying even about the car i px and the history of one owner who is known to quite dangerous, i believe they would damage the car if let do the motor. And by accepting it would leave it difficult to ask for compensation regarding milegae differnce possibly.
  4. i have to send a rejection letter, as i have had a reply offering to supply starter motor, i have just mot and it passed just. Just working out what i should ask for now considering i have no intention on him touching the car at all. Thanks for that its not to bad then dont like the idea of going to court but then i dont intend to let himg get away with it.
  5. how much has it cost so far? it slikely im going to start proceeding i guarantee i will, the cost worrys me though
  6. I certainly hope so, its very encouraging to hear. Im guessing you have to get the bailiffs to get whatyour owed though?
  7. MP has sent me a email and she has written to TS regarding this, hopefulkly this may give them more impoteus to sort it
  8. Let me know what he has to say i will be doing the same through intenet and tweets to my mp, which i am at the minute. Time they did what they are there to do.
  9. i wonder if we could sue TS and the council for not enforcing on these ?
  10. Exactly same as my position and this report stating what needs to change in 2010!! says it all really http://www.oft.gov.uk/OFTwork/markets-work/cars#.UZnnZrUp-o2
  11. I was thinking i could resell the car using the same advert and description. It is clear that TS do nothing to stop it, if something comes back i can simply lie. TS can invsetigate while i rip off more unsuspecting customers who will simply be advised to either take the offer as you wont get anything else. Or pursue but wont get your money back. I think its a good idea. written to local mp via twitter
  12. Let me know how it goes David i agree they do not enforce the law and traders know it.
  13. I will certainly let u know David, this is going on in every city and clearly allowed to get away with it. But i will never give up i have al lot evidence that i have found which ts have and i have if ts wont do anything then il got to mp etc until i do get somewhere. Have u tryed ur local mp?
  14. Thanks for that David this is why i have kept the car i am not allowing them to replace even the starter motor as they have failed to acknowledge all othe rfaults and the mileage. I am getting mot'd and repaired and i willl be going to court to try recoup the money what is and will be owed. In the mean time i am naming and shaming these people in paticular the owner who recently came out of prison for fraud. Court would and any money recovered will be a bonus really but i have gone to papers police and kicking up as much fuss as possible anything i can think of lol.
  15. TS has told me i have to pursue this through civil action, but also advised i dont relate to their investigations. Im told they have been investigating for a extensive period collecting evidence. What annoys me is they know what they are doing but insuspecting customers are getting ripped off, they are aware but do nothing, i know of at least 1 car that is been mis selled now. where does this leave me?
  16. Ok received letter, says how disappointed they are etc. and then states car px was only worth 300 pounds and was a scenic never owned one px a picasso they ar enow selling for 1095. State they told me about mileage before deposit and i paid a 300 pound deposit. Nothing else mentioned regarding misselling etc offer to replace motor thats it as a gesture of goodwill. Been advised by citizens advice consumer line that they have now contacted ts and i have to wait for them, i have spoken to ts and told them i had. But they insist TS must be informed before anything else is done. I inten
  17. Found out convicted fraudster has been found guilty of fraud for cars mortgages etc for 100,000 of pounds. Only recently got out of prison, not looking likely im going to get my money bk.
  18. TS have got in touch with me advised it is going to be passed to enforcement whatever that means. They have asked for all eveidence including adverts very interested the fact of private sale on advert. al evidence they now have
  19. No letter received today or yesterday as owner stated regarding advice he stated he had got from trading standards. Is the owner going to do a fast one im seriously wondering.
  20. Might have to get some legal advice regarding this as their is to sets of complaints. Sent letter under sog act. Have noticed temprature gauge is fluctuating form middle to and quarter eratically, i havent listed this within it. I suspect could be reason i am only getting 33 miles to a gallon.
  21. Just rang only offer they will make fix starter free of charge, stated advert was mistake only on a day have cache stating 17 days and another same month earlier. States legally fine because he stated on the receipt stating mileage was.
  22. have to put in writing ive being adviced siad not unreasonable to ask for compensation for mislead mileage and repair. but what is a reasonable compensation 2008 mondeo tdci 140 150,000 + miles anyone have a clue paid 4000, no mot ex self hire undisclosed.
  23. Managed to find the full cached version of the old advert shows private seller and their at least 10 cars all listed as private sale one as early as last night all quite low mileage. Granted some service history some dont reason suspect these are dodgy especially with the miles no service history.
  24. UPDATE one of the owner rang earlier, denied ever advertising on gumtree however i advised i had a cache and print of advert with his number that he was ringing from and name stating 94000 miles on. He has offered to give money bk and car minus price of new starter, which i rejected he has said he will consider full refund and my car bk and being in touch. All advice of have received i should take no less. i would be interested in ur opinions am being unreasonable ?
