Organization has sold to me a vehicle which has been ''clocked''. It

Resolved Question:

Organization has sold to me a vehicle which has been ''clocked''.
It was advertised as 60.000 miles and in perfect condition but in fact it has done over 300.000. It has number of mechanical issues related to such high mileage and is at the end of it's life. I paid £11.550 on 08/04/2015. Seller is registered charity.
Evidence has been provided by Mercedes service centre in Edinburgh (Western Commercial) which checked warranty repair history for this vehicle and last repair has been done when vehicle has 280.000 miles.
Furthermore service history is forged. Listed repair centres never have seen this vehicle and never serviced it. Writing on all three service entries was done by the same person (Police officers opinion). Although on each, different pen have been used, it is identical writing character on each of them. All evidence is available to view.
I have requested refund over two weeks ago and despite my repeated reminders they ignored me.
I have reported this to police as this is criminal offence and there is hard evidence to prove their wrongdoing.

full refund

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
