More than 20 unhappy car buyers gather at car dealership
Published on Dec 15, 2014 5:11 PM  By Kok Xing Hui
 


SINGAPORE - More than 20 people gathered outside a car dealership at MacPherson Road on Monday, after the dealership failed to deliver the cars they had bought. They wanted to look for the owner, whom they say have been uncontactable for a few days.

This group said they had bought cars from Volks Auto Pte Ltd in the last few months but the cars were not delivered even though their car delivery dates had come and gone.

Their stories followed the same plot: Buyers saw the dealership's advertisement, bought cars for up to $10,000 cheaper than other parallel importers, paid a deposit but were fed excuses about why the cars were not ready when they went to collect them months later.

One such buyer, a 63-year-old who gave his name only as Mr Fong, listed the excuses he received: his Toyota Harrier was stuck in immigration or it was with the Land Transport Authority for inspection.

Mr Fong's car was supposed to be in his possession in mid October.

The Straits Times was shown copies of contracts from angry buyers. The frustration was clear among those gathered outside the building: one man shouted at a security guard.

About 50 of these buyers found each other by going to the shop, which has been closed since Saturday, or through the mycarforum.com online forum.

A WhatsApp group chat has been formed where they discuss actions they could take and a separate group had gone to make a police report.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that.

I can imagine that the anti-VolksAuto Whatapps group is probably cautious in accepting anonymous mobile number into their group so as to prevent VolksAuto spies into the group.

As part of the verification process, it may help if you can
(1) scan the Volks Auto receipt from your family member,
(2) digitally remove personal data from the receipt, and
(3) post it here first.

Concurrently, at least one member from the anti-VolksAuto Whatsapp group may wish to register as a user in this forum so that the link-up is possible.

Putting more heads together would likely yield more constructive options against the sole director/shareholder of Volks Auto Pte. Ltd. named "Alvin Loo Mun Yu", NRIC no.: S7837923E, seeking justice for those affected.

In the meantime, you may wish to follow this advice:

"For consumers who think they have been cheated, they should approach the Small Claims Tribunals to lodge a complaint as soon as possible, while the company is still live. They can also consider lodging a police report or seeking further legal action against the company.

Case said it has received 14 complaints against Volks Auto Pte Ltd on Monday and Tuesday."

Hi L,

You said that you've contacted a person by the name of Andy in Volks Auto and "He keep repeating saying that the car is stuck at LTA etc  to delay the transaction".

For the benefit of the other Volks Auto victims, this is a desensitised posting of my reply to you via pm:

"I'll do what I can to help. Andy can't do much with the refund because the money is with the company and Andy is neither the director nor the shareholder of the company. Instead, these are the steps that you may consider taking.

1. Contact Andy and ask him for these information:
 (a) Contact person in LTA and his contact number so that you can follow up directly with LTA
 (b) Once you have info in 1(a), ask Andy to tell you your car (i) Chassis No., and (2) Engine No.

2. If you manage to get the info for 1(a) and 1(b), follow up with LTA.

3. If you are unable to obtain the 1(a) and 1(b), then proceed to lodge an official complaint with CASE, bring along your receipt.

I can try to help you connect with the anti Volks-Auto Whatsapp group, however, I need your to scan or take a photo snapshot of your receipt for verification purposes, ie. to double check that you are a real victim and not a journalist or from Volks Auto - hope you understand this."

Hi L & K,

I've managed to locate the Administrator of the anti-Volks Auto Whatsapp group. I've sent his name & mobile no. via private message to you already.

The Admin of the "anti-Volks Auto Whatsapp group" told me that there is a gathering today from 4 to 7pm where the group is consolidating various evidence... do bring along a photocopy of your Volks Auto receipt with you.

You may contact him for further details.

PS: For others who wish to have the contact of anti-Volks Auto Whatsapp Admin contacts, you may contact me here and I need a scan/photo of your Volks Auto receipt for verification before I can release the info, so as to protect the identify of the Whatsapp administrator & the group.

For those who are going for the 4 to 7pm gathering today.

Please help me inform the group to consider a concurrent avenue, ie. to lodge a formal complaint with CAD on both:
  • (a) Alvin Loo Mun Yu, S7837923E and
  • (b) Volks Auto Pte. Ltd, Reg. No.: 201409367C
