they spoke to police and when the police have called him he has lied and said different things. with a few of them he has said that they did not pay the delivery charge to the car delivery man and then the car was sent bak to him now they don't want to pay additional storage charge so the police make it a civil matter. each scenario he makes it a civil matter. apparently I have stumbled across letters from theses people to him demanding money and stating the trading standards act. another person has taken it into bailiff court but now he has moved from his car premises. he has conned around over 100k. if I went to the police and they see a trend can he be investigated

Hi
You can certainly give the information to the police.
Whether they will act on it is a different matter
Sorry I cannot be more positive.
It could be more effective to give the people who have been conned details of each other so that they can take it further
Please ask if you need further details
