has proven to be a rather costly error for a work colleague of mine as he has just had the car taken off of him after 3 months of ownership by the police as it was found to be stolen.

It came to light when he tried to tax it online and it came up with a different car, I am not sure of the full details but he bought it off a company, that no longer exists and had false directors/owners, that showed him the full HPI checks etc and he payed by debit card after a loan.

The police report showed that under the drivers seat on a Kia Sportage is some kind of chassis identification that had not been changed, all the others looked OK but under forensics showed they had been tampered with.

He is now £14,500 worse off :speechless:.

Yup , road tax not transferable between vehicles :thumbup:

Your colleague has been very unlucky Russ, but has been obviously scammed by professionals , a costly purchase for sure :speechless:.
Personally , for years I never hpi'd a vehicle but now I wouldn't trust anyone and for the sake of £15 I would always get a check myself . It's a sad world now that you can't trust people unfortunately

We cannot understand why he did not go to a main dealer when spending that kind of money, just shows what can happen when you see "a bargain" on a forecourt.

Some things never change. Bought a car in Manchester about 30 years ago that I'd seen on a forecourt.

Turned out to be stolen

But in the weeks between me buying it and the police turning up a dozy bint pulled out from a side street and I smashed the car front end.

Paid £50 to the insurance company for the car. (it was old) Got the tosser locked up who sold it to me and after having the car repaired by mates. Sold it a year later for more than it cost me even allowing for the repairs.

Best deal ever apart from having to spend thirty mins in a police interview room.

Can we assume that the vendor was of a goat-raping persuasion?

Or a member of the Slavic Caravan Club?

Strat, why do you keep coming back. It's clear you only frequent this site to get up peoples noses, which you do with a surprising ability!
Not sure if you ever watch shows like crimewatch or that show fronted by the annoying s!$% Dom Littlewood etc but you may be surprised to hear that the majority of the crimes committed are by racial minorities. That's not a racist statement, it's fact. So the statement above isn't racist, it's general observation.

OK - The amended version

has proven to be a rather costly error for a work colleague of mine as he has just had the car taken off of him after 9 months of ownership by the police as it was found to be stolen.

It came to light when he tried to tax it online 2 days after he bought it and it came up as already being taxed, I am not sure of the full details but he bought it as a Private Buyer and he payed by cash. This was after he done HPI checks etc himself, they all came back clear.

The car had been cloned, the police said the best they had seen, and it had taken the 9 months from the DVLA knowing about it to the police becoming involved. The report showed that under the drivers seat on a Kia Sportage is some kind of chassis identification that had not been changed, all the others looked OK but under forensics showed they had been tampered with.

He is now £14,500 worse off :speechless:

(and yes the seller was of Pakistani origin)

If your mate bought the car with a hpi check then he may be able to claim compensation from the hpi claim company

No he won't ... he's bought a cloned car hence the reason why the HPI check came back clear /media/file/68296.aspx

Pesky packies at it again,eh. :frown:

The golden rule is. And I'm not being racist here, never ever buy anything of a f!$%ing packie. :thumbup:

When you are looking to buy a car and you call them on telephone, the moment they answer and you can tell they have a packie voice, you put the f!$%ing phone down or you will get sucked in and burnt by them.

It's sad to say but I have to agree :thumbup: .
I have had dealings with them before and you learn quickly to avoid getting involved . If there are any vehicles for sale in the 100 mile distance from where I live (Durham), that means Bradford and Leeds area , I am extremely cautious .
Bunch of shysters :speechless:

I used to deal with an Asian car trader from Swindon (Russ may even know who it is? /media/file/68296.aspx) and he was the dodgiest f!$%er I've ever come across

He used to sell lots of high end 4x4's to people who hadn't got a clue

We had high mileage Freelander he sold locally that came in for an ABS fault. He had hidden the fault light by breaking open the instrument binnacle and putting a lump of blue-tak over the ABS warning light /media/file/68297.aspx

Not when they plug in and read for codes for inspection/MOT...

Maybe he should claim it on his auto insurance as stolen....technically it is a stolen car :lol::lol::lol:
