Strongly disagree with your comment about Cashplus,  they are not a place to luander money, suggest you are careful saying comments like that on a forum, you might just drop yourself in trouble, 

Suggest you ring Cashplus & as you have his account details discuss the transaction with them, I'm sure their fraud prevention team would be interested in this activity of scamming people 

Not here to say anything bad about cash plus, what I said is an actual fact. It’s really easy to open an account with them without any credit checks, no stringent checks or whatsoever. On a normal day Michael having a track record of scamming people would have a CIFA on his name by now and that would bar him from opening a business account from a high street bank hence he resorted to cash plus.

 My bank already got intouch with cash plus to recover the funds and still no response, I personally rang them and they couldn’t give me an answer. A high street bank would had placed a hold on the funds right away, then investigate when my bank got in touch. Anyway that’s not highly important here and would try not to deviate from the subject. I’m here to share information about my experience with these cons and as well seek more information. Thank you

Nice bit of detective work there. Have you gone to the police? 

I have informed action fraud police Uk already and a report had been created, as well as the trading standards. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Dave.

Action fraud are not likely to do anything to help you, this article from 2 years ago highlighted that http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/investing/11812377/Victim-of-fraud-Why-the-authorities-WONT-investigate.html

Have a look at the eBay Vehicle Scam Alerts page on facebook, they have managed to recover quite a bit of money from eBay scammers, they may be able to give you some options for getting your money back from the bank rather than the scammer. https://www.facebook.com/groups/GroupEVSA/?fref=nf

After spreading what they are upto here and few other platforms, whilst at work today out the blue they sent me a text messsge and it reads ‘ We will refund please email confirmation of cancelled order for engine with your name address & bank details thanks Denzil‘
Interestingly I had sent them my full bank info when I requested refund previously.  Not sure this is just a hoax so I would not keep spreading the word. Will keep you posted...

They probably don't want their bank account getting closed down by the bank.

Be very careful it may however just be a stalling tactic. Also if the funds do get paid back it's not unknown for banks to claw them back again if there is some dispute over where they came from.

Last thing, of course keep a close eye on your account as people have managed to get money out of accounts just using sort and account number, Jeremy Clarkson was one famous victim when he gave his out on air.

They’ve gone back to the old tactic of ignoring my calls, sms and email since I sent them the my bank info for refund!

probably a stalling tactic as my bank and the police fraud, trading standards are on the case already. I won’t let go until full refund is done, would explore all the options available even ones I can’t mention here. They got to be stopped. Times are hard and unacceptable for some conman to sit and keep scamming people from their hard earned cash. Having a broken vehicle engine that costs 3.5k alone makes ones finances meddled, and on top of that a conman thieving another £1,500. Very Shameful

Yes I paid into a business account ‘just 4 ltd’ 
The legal process is already being taken care of by my Solicitor’s so they’ll end up with costs attached.

Here’s the listings again live on Ebay, please click in the link and report the listing, this way the more people that click that Ebay would probably shut his listings down else there would be more and more victims. And some Don’t even know about this forum, I was lucky when I googled I came across it.

Interestingly non of the listings accepts PayPal, only a mobile phone number and a business address that is invalid. When I visited the address in their Ebay account there was no sign of them and neighbours told me they been known for scam.

What are you reporting them as? Stolen seems a bit wrong, but nothing else seems to fit the bill exactly?

Fraudulent listing should do. As it don’t seem any of those are available.. one gets woed into paying them and would end up receiving nothing and no communication.

The photos for the second auction were taken outside this place https://www.facebook.com/Prestige-hand-car-wash-tyres-309848752680043/

Of course that doesn't mean he's nearby but perhaps it helps

 

Some of the others are taken in Newport near this place http://www.thomsonlocal.com/Chris-Spiteri-Son/101808/01633430006/

To get back at them a bit I regulary buy rather expensive parts from them on Ebay. TDV8 complete interior for 1500 etc..
I make an appointment for collection in a few days. Mark the item as paid afterwards and ofcourse never show up :-) .

I hope the will have to pay the ebay charges each time. After I while I will leave some negative feedback, telling the parts where damaged and they wouldn't refund :-)

I really, really recommend people always buy stuff online using a credit-card rather than a debit-card or by bank-transfer.

Credit-card transactions are covered by an entirely more consumer-friendly set of legislation than debit-card transactions or bank-transfers.

[Given their history, I'm kinda surprised nobody's yet resorted to visiting Mr. Fear and his cohorts to introduce them to the 'exfoliative' end of a gritblaster]

I had heard that if people pay them a visit they hide, can't remember where I read that though now.

Just an update refund hasn’t still come through ( was only lied) I rang up to follow up and Michael Fear answered and said ‘you c**t,  that I been ringing his phone over 50 times that he is not going to make any refund’
Already making arrangements to hunt this guy, wouldn’t say the next steps  on here, that would happen if he is found. I’ll keep you posted.

Just been a thing on the local news (HTV West) about a company based in Sling who were stealing / stripping various Land Rovers - looks to be the same people.

Somebody Barrington appears to have just been given a jail sentence at Bristol court for it. I didn't catch all the snippet to get the full details. It doesn't appear to be on the BBC News site yet either..
