Mo­tor dealer failed to pay off fi­nance on Stephen’s trade-in

Sunday Mail (UK) - - The Judge -

I paid a de­posit of £5000. The new fi­nance on the Audi was £381 a month and John promised that they would pay the ex­ist­ing loan on the Merc.”

But they did not set­tle the fi­nance. He said: “The direct debit has been col­lected from my ac­count since April last year.

“I’ve paid a fur­ther £ 4279 to the fi­nance com­pany for a car I haven’t had for a year and which Jasu have sold on.”

Stephen, a train driver, of Wishaw, La­nark­shire, added: “John McNamee told me it was noth­ing to do with him and he’d have to speak to his boss and get back to me. He said they were Ideal Mo­tor Group now and noth­ing to do with Jasu. Turns out he is a boss – of both firms.”

I soon dis­cov­ered Jasu Ltd were about to be struck off at Com­pa­nies House af­ter fail­ing to file ac­counts.

Ideal Mo­tor Group, who were set up in Novem­ber 2016 as Jasu Ve­hi­cle Leas­ing Ltd, claimed Stephen’s griev­ance was with the pre­vi­ous oc­cu­piers of their premises.

Ex­cept that McNamee is a di­rec­tor of both Ideal Mo­tor Group and Jasu Ltd.

The spokesman added: “We have spo­ken to the di­rec­tors of Jasu Ltd and be­lieve this has been an over­look on their part.

“They are in con­tact with the fi­nance com­pany to ar­range a so­lu­tion.”
