I'm hopeing all my friends and family and wider community can help my family.... We are trying to get some money together to help us out to buy a car as we are victims of Fraud. Afew weeks ago we bought a car off a man which didn't work after driving it for an hour... This man we bought off offered us another 7 seater he had and we accepted... He also said cause of the inconvenience he will fix the advisorys on the MOT for us. A week later he collected the car and said he would be 24hrs at the most.. 24hrs passed and no car the man in question said he's found an oil leak and his mother's died can he have longer and we accepted.... I then saw him driving the car I phoned him and he said he was test driving it and will have it back that night. Anyway he then messaged me saying he's crashed it and needed to fix the bumper this went on for another week. I have 5 children you see who need school etc and I now can't get them there. Anyway the guy in question said he will compensate us some money for events missed etc due to the car not been ready... Anyway in the mean time I saw the car twice again driving about with a women driving it. I phoned the guy in question and he said iv had to lend it to my sister for the day I was so upset he then said he promised the car will be bk with me that night again with the money. This never happened. I then posted a post on Facebook seeking help from the public to help find the car... In the end I found out the man in question had told us he had taken the car bk for the MOT advisorys but had actually taken it back to the original owner.... He stole our money and car the police are involved but cause the guy who has it now can prove he's the owner there's not alot we can do.... Our family is devistated the car had all our belongings in for the children there now gone. We can't at the moment afford alot for a new car with the guy in question taking our money and won't offer it back to us. Iv come on here hopeing if anyone out there can help us with this awful situation and help me get my Family back on the road
