If a used vehicle is sold to a police officer

- do they have a right to expect better treatment

and can they threaten you with their position if things go wrong ( or not their way?)

 

 

Also, if this police officer turns out to have actually retired

can they continue to inform you ''they are the police''

and you will be in big trouble if you don't do what they want.

 

 

Would this be deemed as impersonating a police officer?

No they don't.

 

 

On retirement they are a civilian

 

 

And even if they ARE the police, unless the car youve sold is stolen then any problems are a civil matter.

 

 

Do tell more of the circumstances please

All police are civilians - retired or not.

Thank you,

 

 

A vehicle was sold to a police officer,

they made it clear they were in the police

and they actually inspected vehicles within the police.

 

 

The vehicle they purchased was used and 10 years old!

 

 

it was taken on a test drive for over an hour, it was thoroughly inspected and customer was happy and paid in full.

 

The retailer was contacted a couple of months later, the customer wanted another vehicle too...

... then retailer was contacted again shortly afterwards after a fault/damage was found on the vehicle,

( the vehicle had been MOT'ed the day before the test drive)

and threats about being in the police and the crime that had been committed began.

 

The retailer offered to collect the vehicle and repair the fault

but the customer would not allow this and is demanding a refund.

 

 

It now seems the customer is actually a retired police officer although emails sent imply he is still serving.

Well bless his cotton socks, I have no time for these lot, and I would firmly tell him to put up or shut up.

 

I am guessing that this 'retailer' is a bona fide garage? Or in the business of selling vehicles and belongs to a recognised motor trade organisation?

 

Quite what ''crime'' he thinks has been committed is anyone's guess and if indeed it were a 'crime' then plod would be knocking on your door.

 

Report him to the police service he claims to be serving and have them take up the matter, I take it you have his name and address?

Ring 101 and report him for impersonating a police constable, and if he has failed to return the vehicle then you could possibly report it as stolen.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Retailer is a well established independent garage,

 

 

''Mr Plod'' still has the vehicle,

 

 

he wont let the retailer look at the damage to consider repairing it,

 

 

he just wants a refund first.

 

 

He says it is not fit for purpose yet it was sold with an MOT done the day before.

 

 

He had it for 8 weeks before he complained,

and given he was a vehicle inspector

if it is damaged this could have easily happened whilst in his care.

Does he have a right to reject after so long?

So has he paid for it outright?

 

If he still owes money for it, report it stolen.

 

If he is unwilling to let the garage look at the vehicle to carry out an inspection then quite how he

believes he is going to get a refund is anyones guess??

 

Sounds like he's played this little trick before, bought a vehicle, driven round in it for a couple of months, decided he doesn't like it

and claims there is a fault with the vehicle and wants a full refund!

 

I'd be interested to know how many miles he's racked up on it, and exactly what he's done to the vehicle to make it not fit for purpose?

8 weeks is outside any agreement/warranty/contract terms for demanding a full refund.

 

 

however, this is within the 'options' the dealer may choose.

 

 

if the new owner is refusing to make the vehicle available for the dealer to inspect

then that's his problem.

the dealer is under no legal right to refund, should he not feel that option the correct one.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs
