    What he did was illegal. The transaction took place in Irerland so may be subject to Irish Law. If it was me I'd have the cops notified and have him arrested AFTER he had refunded you !

    Moral of the story: do a hpi check everytime.

    Oh and in before lock (in the event its locked for the same reason as it was in comsumer issues)

    I agree. Anyone who doesn't spend a few £ to get a HPI report done is a mug.

    Chauffe, Marcel, chauffe!

    pegasusnet, you register for just to post this without showing us any proof. I'm closing this, but I wish you the best of luck in getting your money back. Contact a solicitor.

    HPI check any UK import folks! If you hear of anyone plannning to import a car, please let them know
