Refund for wound back vehicle
A private importer not only tried to sell a Nissan Skyline with a haircut, he also photo shopped the auction papers to trim the mileage and boost the auction grade. (see highlighted sections in the pictures)
The original papers we provided showed that the vehicle was wound back around 50,000km.
The seller, a private importer from Brisbane, produced a forged copy of the de-registration certificate and the auction sheet, but the threat of legal action was enough to get things moving as you can see by this message we have received from our client:
"Hey mate, some news: After a lot of trying to scare the fraudster, I finally got $24,300 back out of 25,000. He charged for the registration cost from the first time around, but glad I got most of it back. Thanks so much for getting me out of it with your awesome support with providing me with the registration paper. That obviously scared him, even though he kept saying he doesn’t know anything and that the agent from Japan stuffed him up with the false papers. Anyways....I had my last say with him. I'll make sure he cannot sell the car and let people know what dodgy fraudster he is. It was up on carsales.com.au just last night, but I have complained to carsales.com.au by flagging the advert. It looks like its been taken down or someone fool like me bought it!"
