We saw the car advertised on eBay, bid on the car which we won at £40000-00.
We paid £500-00 deposit through Paypal had the car hpi checked through the rac which came back clear. Arranged for delivery of the car and paid bank transfer £20500-00 then £18000 cash on delivery the dealer was britannia autos Wembley comercial centre east lane Wembley ha9 7pr. The police turnedup on Monday confiscated the car and confirmed its been cloned and basically that's where we are 40k out of pocket and no idea,what to do.
