I think you'll need to give us a bit more to the story than that if you want us to help.

A bullet point list of what happened, price paid, what went wrong, etc is usually helpful.

We could do with some help from you.

  • Nicky Boy changed the title to Numota dodgy cars

I bought a Yaris via Autotrader on 5th August which I paid £1995 for plus £180 transportation cost.

Car was in Leicester sold by a guy called Zayn at Numota.

The car arrived on Saturday 12th on a low loader.

Appeared to be what I had expected.

Drove the car only for it to stall at every single junction and roundabout and cut out at traffic lights.

Took it into my usual garage who told me not to spend a penny on it, engine flooded with oil, underneath rotten and MOT must be dodgy as it would never pass. Incidentally drove around 7 miles and didn't clock up a single mile!!

Rang Zayn who said they would collect the car and refund the money and since then nothing!

Managed to track them down to a place called Neal Brothers in Leicester and got someone to call in there.

He got a number off a guy called Abdullah who is selling the cars but when I rang him he tells me he's a taxi driver.

Been in touch with Auto trader and Trading Standards.

Now what?

In addition to the question – how did you pay? (Although I think I already know the answer – check our used car guide) – you have the right to reject the car within 30 days if it shows any defect.

Although this is not going to help you find the dealer, you may as well assert the right immediately. This means that you must write a letter immediately – send it by first class recorded post and also by email. Point out that the car is defective and that you are asserting your rights under the consumer rights act and that as the defects have manifested themselves within the first 30 days, you are rejecting the vehicle and you want to know the arrangements for returning it and for it refunding your money.

Do that straightaway. It is urgent.

And then please answer the question put to you by my site team colleague above @Nicky Boy

Their website is rather vague with an address, but the one listed on autotrader is... 

Address

  • Unit 12A.,Buckland Road
  •  
  • Leicester
  • Leicestershire
  • LE5 0NT

 

From their website, I've got a bad feeling about this one.

"Appointment only", vague address, mobile phone number...

And Google Street View doesn't look good.

I'm afraid it was obvious that you were going to say it was by bank transfer. Big Fail!

Why did you think it was by debit card?

You say it had to come down by transporter. This means that you didn't even see the car? And also is not close to you. Where are you in the country?

Stupidly it appears it was a bank transfer although I thought it was debit card but my bank say not

If you paid by bank transfer you would surely know about it, because you would have had to log in to your online banking to do so, or do it over the phone with the bank. The point I'm making is it would have to have been you who did that, the dealer couldn't make a bank transfer on your behalf...unless you did something unthinkable, like logged on to your bank via his computer?

If you paid by him inserting your debit card into a payment device then you did indeed pay by debit card.

Edit: I'm re-reading your post and see you weren't actually present. Still wasn't a bank transfer.

@amarie22 it would really help us if you could answer the questions that we are asking.

Also I'd like to know if the car has an MOT? Is it a recent MOT? Who issued it? If it wasn't issued by the dealer, was it issued by an MOT station close to the dealer?

Have you written the letter which I proposed earlier?

Thank you Amarie22. Please PM me your details or tell me how else we can communicate. 

I also contacted the company connected to SCL Trading who were the "company" we sent the money to so I'm not sure if you needed to go down that route? 

I understand you JUST went through all this Amarie22 so I can appreciate you want to just move on but again any assistance would be amazing. Thanks in advance.

I know I said otherwise yesterday, but having had a discussion with the team we think the best thing is to keep information and advice on this thread or on a new one that enticed should start.

That way you can help other victims who come here and keep any advice on the open forum where other caggers can add their thoughts.
