I was misled by false advertisements on the internet to sell a car that is in England.
The owner of the car is presented as a German resident (doctor) who went to work in England. He told me he sold the car because it was left-hand drive and it works in England. After several phone calls and emails we agreed to deliver my car to Bulgaria by the company that made such deliveries worldwide. I gave him my name and phone number and soon called me from the so-called agency. They sent me a contract, notes and bank account to transfer the deposit of 30% of the value of the car. Like when you see it, if I did not like to give up and deposit may be refunded to me.
Everything seemed legally check with a lawyer and bank employees. Account and the company with which transfers made were reliable as internet sources.
Two days after the deposit translated by the company called me to tell me that all the documents are ready, the car is loaded and ready to go to Bulgaria, but customs have requested a document (CMR), which costs € 2,000 without it the car cannot leave. After several conversations with the seller and the company assured me that everything is legitimate and the money will be deducted from the total amount of the car. I have a detailed explanation of the letters that document all transfers, which I did, company’s phones, location, website and email account.
For several days nobody picks up the phone (neither seller nor the transport company) I do not respond to letters and I have heard nothing about the car. This led me to think that I was deceived in the circle and so I turn to you for help.
I ask for your help, hoping to be caught and stopped these scams. If it’s possible to recover lost money, should be great.
