I am having the exact same problem as you.

Now have a vehicle that does not work.

 

I believe I have lost my money but will do everything I can to get it back.

 

Ring your bank to start with and report it as fraud.

Contact Action Fraud and report him, they are linked to the police.

Report him to ebay as well.

 

If he won't do the right thing then hopefully the police can help him see the error of his scamming ways.

I have noticed a few other people are having the same issues as I am.

 

I bought a vehicle from this seller on ebay and had it delivered.

Within a mile of my house it went into limp mode and when taken for a diagnostic test it came back with 41 faults.

 

He now won't answer his phone. 

I have reported him to ebay, trading standards, my bank and action fraud.

I haven't finished trying to stop him doing this to other people and will try to get my money back but please whatever you do don't buy from him.

well if you can find a proper existing address for him

launch a court claim.

 

but to date, no-one has..

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

It's annoying because the bank can't help obviously data protection  but he must have an address to have a bank account. Let's hope action fraud can chase him down. 

 

It's a Land Rover Discovery 3.

41 diagnostic faults,

won't drive for more than a mile without going into limp mode.

No 2nd key as promised,

air bag warning light on.

Mot says corrosion and leaking exhaust which it still has.

No heated seats which i actually emailed and asked him about.

 

Lots of other things that he described in his write up.

Definitely not the exemplary vehicle he advertised.

 

@senbell1

I'm sorry to hear of your problem too.

We thought with covid 19 we were doing the right thing to not travel to view it.

You live and learn I suppose.

If you expect Action from Action Fraud, I am sorry to tell you that they have no such remit. They are simply a department of the City of London Police who collate reports of suspected fraud from around the country for analysis and policy formulation.

My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

I have no legal qualifications.

I'm afraid that it seems that this dealer is being very elusive. Apparently the address which was provided doesn't even exist.

It seems like a very easy way of making money – by them at auction, advertise them all over the place – insist on payment by bank transfer – and then deliver the vehicle to the purchaser's address – and then simply leave and remain untraceable.

When not even sure that it's the dealer's real name. If someone was able to find out the real name of the dealer and where he lives then it might give us a head start.

Other than that, it's difficult to know where to start.

I certainly suggest that you start posting up reviews all over the Internet but certainly, organisations such as Action Fraud are useless. Trading standards will take absolutely no notice whatsoever and I'm afraid that by encouraging people to complain to these organisations – although a good idea in principle – tends to dilute anger, encourage fatigue and give victims a false sense that they have taken some valid action.

Interesting, I was told that they will be in contact with me within 28 days. I shall contact them to discuss what you have said as if they won't do what they say they will I will not waste my time on them.
