    Hi Guys


    damn, talk about bad luck, beginning of august I was helping my friend do a carboot (he was using my car to sell from as his, new car didn’t have the room to put all the stuff in) he was selling “DVDs” cut along story short, Trading Standards came along and arrested all of us, and took my car..


    so we’ve been on bail for ages, it runs out on Oct 1st, but am just worried about my car. Obviously to continue working I need that car, and unable to afford another one. But, heres the thing, with my car bought on finance for GMAC.. can trading standards actually keep my car? Just posting to see if anyone knows anything aout this


    Danny

    i've just emailed the woman, who took my car & Laptop, i hope to get a reply today.

    am not sure they can crush cars that are on finance can they? as the car isnt actually mine, i am paying a finance company untill i have paid the balance

    [EDIT]
    heres the reply

    Hi Daniel,

    As you are aware your car and laptop have been seized as evidence and as such will not be returned to you until a decision has been made as to what action if any we are going to take against you.

    If it is decided to charge you then it will be up to the Court to decide what happens to your car and laptop. This decision to charge is made by my manager.

    You will be notified of what action is going to be taken when you surrender to your bail on the 1st October.

    Regards

    I think they seize the car due to the possibility of it being bought with proceeds of selling the counterfiet goods IIRC

    A bit like when they hold assets of drug dealers.

    Have you told the people that its on finance?
