“I was nearly fooled by this site which now appears...”

Mark O.
7/1/13

I was nearly fooled by this site which now appears to have gone down. What struck me was the strange way that all the cars were photgraphed in different locations many opf which were domestic. Surely if they had been repossessed they would all be ina warehouse somewhere or in the garage where the 93 point check was carried out. Presumably they have just copied pictures off other car websites. Some of the cars were also quite old to be repossessed.

Basically, they want you to send them the money first, then they will send you the car. I asked if I could go and view the car first, so they blocked me from accessing the website... not the actions of a legitimate company. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Users should beware of this site. All the cars are less than 50% of the book value. They do not answer the phone. They want you to deposit funds into offshore account and they will send you the car. If you make too many inquiries they block you from the site

This website is a complete FRAUD/SCAM!
What kind of legitimate Business selling Porches, BMW, Mercedes and a variety of high performance vehicles would only allow contact via live chat over their website? They do not allow you to visit there premises to purchase vehicles, give excuses for not being able to contact them via telephone and when I diid manage to find a contact number and rang them an answer machine kicked in giving a recorded message of an engaged dialing tone. On top of this there company does not exist on Company House (the official UK government register of UK companies) and after querying them regarding their companies legitimacy my IP Address was blocked on both of my internet connections.

Very good organised crime website AVOID!

Auto Used Car PLC SCAM CAR TRADER WARNING

http://autousedcar.co.uk
Bad smell? Something fishy on the Isle of Man? Maybe it's Auto Used Car PLC?

Quick web search:

Trustworthiness rank is -1 (minus 1) In comparison, Site Jabber is plus 90. Big warning!

www.autousedcar.co.uk seems to be almost identical to scam car sales website Ioofmausedcar.com which was identified by many Site Jabber reviews and has since been removed. (Check the Site Jabber reviews on ioofmausedcar.com)

Same hype, same explanation of how they buy and sell 'reposessed'cars at amazing prices. Same reluctance to allow you to inspect the vehicles. Same demand that you transfer cash direct…

Also, here, they are claiming to be a PLC (Publicly Limited Company). Now, getting PLC status is quite difficult – and I suspect falsely claiming PLC status may be breaking even more trading laws than just stealing money from gullible customers.

Hopefully the police and trading standards will take an even closer interest in these people.

Now, can I find any reference to a PLC called 'Auto Used Car PLC'? No? How odd!
Google their address – only one hit – which comes back to their brand new website. Strange.

Google map the address – go to satellite – no sign of a large used car operation. Stranger.

Look at Site Jabber reviews – an onslaught of fantastic reviews – mostly on the same day, and just a couple of weeks since the website domain was purchased. Truly amazing! (They have someone working for them who knows how to work Google SEO ranking system so they are not all dummies)

Just for fun I took a paragraph from their 'about us' page and flew it through www.plagium.com What a surprise – six hits, ALL FROM SCAM AUTO TRADERS. Now, isn't that a coincidence?

People, the smell of bad fish from this bunch is so strong, I'd gag if I got any closer.

Best advice – avoid like the plague. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
