    Default brother in law sold s3, now the guys want money back!

    Today, some blokes drove 250 miles to collect bro in laws audi s3 he advertised on gumtree. they was more than happy and the car and test drive and was in perfect working order, genuinly no issues what so ever with the car. He was selling due to needing a five door, sold as seen paid in cash.2 hours later he got a phonecall from they guy saying hes broke down on motorway and turbos blown and he wants a refund. To cut along story short the calls turned abit nasty and the guys have been saying they will be returning fully armed. The brother in law is in alot of shock this has happened andcannot be bothered with trouble at his door, so has said for good will he will pay half towards a new turbo, but not giving money back! How do we know he hasnt thrashed the hell out of it, or has a s3 of his own and wants to exchange all the parts from this s3 then get his money back! What would you do? It all seems abit dodgy the story was changing alot, one minute they are on montorway next minute they are are been towed next min they are back on motorway, and said aa recovery was 150 quid which is not rite, coz it costs more than that to be recoverd off motorway... do you think maybe a scam swapping parts and testing water to see if can get money back after they got wat they want...? It has currently been left as they guy will be ringing on tuesday for a price on a new turbo expecting him to pay or give a full refund for good will! When you sell a car private he states sold as seen so....? Wats ur thoughts?

    Sold as seen for a private sale. If the bloke is threatening him, advise him that he is contacting the Police. I would then also contact the Police and advise them of the phone calls.

    If this was a private sale then its sold as seen. I had an issue with an Astra I sold, guy called me after 3 hours saying EML had come on and demanded money towards the cost of putting it right as he had been to a garage. I asked what the codes were and he could not tell me.I contacted trading standards/consumer direct and they told me to ignore him and if he got threating to contact the Police. Never heard anything from him once I told him to P I * S off.
    You should really call the police if there has been threats tho ASAP

    They buyer said he was ringing police!!!! So bro in law rang police and they said same, sold as seen and they wont get involved, they are only interested in threats. They will not be supporting him to get a refund even if the car blew up! I dont think he was gunna call police though, it maybe just intimidation as part of scam if it is one!

    I think its a scam or they blew the turbo up by thrashing the car. Make sure you record any phone calls and keep any texts they send. You could send them a text telling them you will not be doing anything and if you get a threatning reply then you have evidence for the Police

    SOLD AS SEEN!!! your brother-in-law should have his details after the sale so forward them onto the police, means the incident has been reported and they have been made aware of the situation. However under no circumstances hand over money, that is a NO NO, If he does it means that there is a guilt on your brother-in-laws part, and that he knew there was something wrong with the car, when clearly the car was in perfect condition when sold. Handing over money could end up in a full refund later on down the line if the repairs on the car don't work out. Be careful here!!!
