Really feel for you OP, what a debacle. This is seemingly almost legal theft, like rogue builders who steal huge amounts off people for shoddy/non existant work and then get a slap on the wrist if they are unlucky.

For what its worth, hope you get something....

More common than you think this. You really do need to check a dealer out properly before giving them your car to SOR. I thought this firm was pucker until quick bit of desktop research eh!

Looks like Mearns is in a spot of bother.......brilliant Cop lock
I've just seen a post on FB about it, I'm sure the person who posted it is one of the people in this thread, so I'll let them post it up.

Generally speaking of course, if sale transaction money goes directly into any company directors or shareholders personal bank account and they fail to pay someone, transfer it immediately to the company account or fail to declare it, then its potentially jail time for such large sums of money.

Unclear what the script is in this instance(yet).

Yep if theft can be proved for the sort of sums involved here, it could be jail time. This is where holding yourself out as an expert can really back fire on you as abuse of trust is a major consideration in criminal proceedings

Questions will obviously need to be asked of past directors also may have known / gained financially from the fraud, especially if such a director is a none practising solicitor, the punishments can be more severe.. I think this should be reported to the solicitors standards body to satisfy themselves if Samantha mearns has acted appropriately in these matters.

Also does not look good that the local MP promoted such a business with such a close relationship with a local councillor so recently. I think some public retractions are in order

If there is a police investigation / arrest / bail the press will likely get interested and some social media momentum

It's about time some popular car forums who put advertising revenue over protecting their members interests are also named and shamed. If they had not hidden the facts over the years there would be less innocent victims of scumbags like Mearns. People with such weak morals and social conscious simply should not be allowed ever to effectively act as trustees for other people's property. Hopefully this case will hit national headlines and act as a wakeup call to others travelling the same path

Personally I hope mearns loses everything.. I detest with a passion thieving scumbag liers, can you tell Judge

The only other forum that let the cat out of the bag was DDK and all credit to the owner of that site although 911UK is on another level with its influence.

Samantha is in the poop, just as much as AM. She’ll not enjoy her new life once exposed, and she’ll regret not paying OP!

I can neither confirm or deny this news !!!!

Apparently, it’s all been a big misunderstanding, he thought SOR meant “Steal Our Rides” although I suspect it may well mean “Sore Old Rectum” for him soon !!!

Can’t say anything more at this stage thumbsup
