Not just cowboy builders.......
I feel for anyone who asks a dealer too sell their bike for them,then this s**t happens too them!
Unfortunately as we live in a `I DON'T GIVE A F*** ABOUT YOU ,JUST ME WORLD',you have to be EXTRA,EXTRA cautious.I know,if you're desperate to sell and you advertise and no-one gets in touch,you think you're either cursed or are going too be stuck with said item.
I was in a situation about eleven years ago when i had a Honda RVF400RR,grey import.I had bought one low miles as i was told they would keep value but the parallel imports came out devaluing my bike.I asked a few local dealers if they would buy my bike but the amount was crap.One happened too mention that they could sell it for me.I had reservations as i didn't like the thoughts of my bikesitting in the showroom being damaged by un-caring punters,who didn't give a toss.Glad too say i sold it,luckily,MYSELF.
However,as with con artists,cowboy builders,etc,these people should have whatever assets they have seized by the authorities,until they pay back the customers(victims)every penny + compensation.Then they should be stripped of all entiltement to start a new business.This last part is more tricky as they could start up again,as they do,using a spouse,family member as the owner.They should also be jailed and i mean jailed,not two years out in eight months with good behaviour!!!
Its about time this bloody wreck of a country got its act together.
I'm sick of what is happening and feel ashamed too be British.The government are a bunch of vultures,the cops are about as much use as a holed condom,then you have the noveau rich who just go out and buy another too replace whatever's gone,not giving a s***, while the law caters and feels sorry for the criminal not the victim.
