A rogue trader who sold clocked cars to his unsuspecting customers from his three companies in Alperton has been fined.
Ibrahim Namo, from Ealing, ran Top Choice, Smart Autos and M6 Autos from premises in Northfields Industrial Estate in Beresford Avenue, advertising his cars on Auto Trader magazine and website.
But between October 2012 and March last year, he falsely described several cars, lying about mileage, model and service history.
At Willesden Magistrates’ Court he pleaded guilty to three offences under The Consumer Protection for Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 and was ordered pay a total of £520.
Cllr George Crane, Lead Member for Environment at Brent Council, said: “Second-hand car dealers don’t have the best image and Namo’s conduct does nothing to help this perception. His deliberate lying, about one of the biggest financial purchases people will make after buying a house, is distressing for consumers.
