Second prosecution lands Dudley car trader suspended prison sentence

Posted on: 11/09/2019

A Dudley car trader has received a 20 week prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, after a second prosecution by Dudley Trading Standards.

Umar Ijaz of St Michaels Grove, Dudley, trading as Lexuslegend, sold a mis-described vehicle using a false name and address and altered the advert after the sale.

At Wolverhampton Magistrates Court on September 5 Ijaz pleaded guilty to five offences under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations.

He also pleaded guilty to a Fraud Act offence, having admitted to altering the eBay advertisement for the Lexus shortly after purchase adding the statement “sold as spares or repairs and invoiced as such.”

This prosecution followed a previous conviction for three trading standards offences in 2016 after the sale of an unroadworthy car.

The court heard that the customer bought a Lexus LS430 for £1,750 after seeing an advert on eBay which claimed the car was a ‘fine drive’ and was ‘mechanically great.’ Both statements were removed from the advert after the sale.

In fact the rear brake discs were found to be heavily corroded and the exhaust system had been repaired using a drinks can. The off side rear suspension was found to be 15mm lower than the near side rear suspension.

Ijaz also altered the advert after purchase to read ‘the rear N/S suspension goes down overnight, but goes back up within seconds of starting.’ 

Ijaz was also ordered to pay costs of £1,000 and £115 victim surcharge.

Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member for health & adult social care, said:

Trading Standards officers investigate complaints where second hand vehicles are not described fully or accurately, because it is vital that consumers receive the information they need to make an informed choice about whether to buy or not.
We will not hesitate to take action against traders who make misleading actions or omissions which deceive the customer and may put their safety at risk.

You have been warned.

And there's me thinking you can't keep a good man down, it obviously applies to the bad as well!  Good heads up Mike.

I wonder how many prosecutions are required before he actually gets put in the slammer?

If he commits it before the 18 months suspension is up it will be his next appearance before the courts.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
