Good evening everyone, thank you for letting me join this group. 


I today bought a car from a motor trader. 

The advert 1 previous owner 
Actual previous owners 4 

They didn’t bring the front of the v5 document so couldn’t see. 

Also the green new keepers slip is invalid when I tried to tax the vehicle.

When I asked about it they said that I need to apply for a new v5 which wasn’t on the advert. 


They also statated full service history but then couldn’t find the service book so we arrange a price reduction. 

But after looking at the 5 service invoices they provided the dates and mileages don’t match up with the MOT history.

The papers look scanned or something.

I have checked the apparent service centre and it doesn’t exist.

I also checked the bank details on the service invoice and they don’t exist.   


The car bought was £2195. 
They gave me £1700 for my car part ex. 

I’m unsure of what to do as they said the timing belt and water pump was done on 05/02/19 at 77k miles on the invoice but on the mot history the car was on 93k miles 

Any help appreciated

In addition to the name of the driver colour you need to tell us how you paid for the car? Did you pay by bank transfer did you pay by my cash?


What date did you buy the car?
