Car scam victim out $40 000
WHEN MOHOMMED MOHAMAD bought his new car, little could he have known six months later that he would be waiting outside his home for the police in the wee hours of the morning.
However, the irate man wants to know how a stolen car could have passed through the Barbados Licensing Authority so easily.
Mohamad told his unfortunate tale, which went from a man happy to get a modern car to a man out thousands of dollars and forced to “bum” lifts.
He said: “I bought a car in December, a 2012 Toyota Axio, worth $40 000. I met a fella who acts like a used car broker, he is a go-between buyer and seller and I got the car through him.” (CA)
