I just bought a second hand car and discovered there is a general [problem] going on. The con basically involves any kind of car with a price range of £1000 to £1500. There are a lot of people now who pretend to be car traders. They look for drivable cars with faults, buy them cheap, somehow get these faulty cars MOTed and sell it on for a much higher price.
BEWARE OF ANY TRADER WHO SAYS THEY HAVE JUST STARTED THE TRADE AND SO DON'T HAVE A PROPER CAR SALES GARAGE.
BEWARE OF ANY TRADER WHO SAYS THEY JUST BOUGHT A CAR OR JUST HAD A CAR IN ON PART EXCHANGE. THESE SO CALLED TRADERS ARE BOGUS, THEY WILL GIVE FAKE NAMES AND ADDRESS.
THEY WILL KNOWINGLY SELL YOU A CAR WITH A FAULT AND WHEN YOU DISCOVER THE PROBLEM AND TRY TO TAKE IT BACK, THE SO CALLED TRADER WILL BE NO WHERE TO BE FOUND.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT...................THANKS.
