Salam Wheelers. Posting on behalf of a dearest brother, the purpose of this thread is to alert you guys as well as to seek help and prayers because we?ll be needing a lot of them.
This happened earlier this month to my dear brother @huzaifaa, when the car in question was posted for sale. The person, Tasawwar Mehmood called and wanted an exchange with another vehicle in his possession. After inquiry of the details and all, he asked for an inspection to which huzaifa bhai humbly agreed upon. This guy rang up again exactly after 2 hours and said he was waiting outside at the address provided. Huzaifa bhai took the civic and went to him where he saw this guy accompanied with some females and children in a car.
After thorough inspection of both of the vehicles, both parties agreed upon exchange, this guy tasawwar had to pay around 200k+ cash on top of his car in exchange according to the deal made.
The transfer letter which he was giving alongside the vehicle?s documents was not of the latest format and was totally useless, so Huzaifa bhai asked him to provide a new one. Huzaifa bhai as well, was not in possession of the Honda Civic?s registration book which was with a guy in Islamabad for transfer of the civic to Huzaifa bhai?s own name.
So huzaifa bhai told him about the guy and that he could pick the registration book from him the next day but the transfer letter for the civic will only be provided once Tasawwar provides new transfer letter for the vehicle that was exchanged.
Agreeing on all the above facts, this guy Tasawwar insisted upon written paperwork of the deal. So the engine and chassis numbers of both the cars were written on a white paper (stamp paper was not available due to weekend) and both parties signed it with exchange of the copies of National ID cards. Tasawwar wrote and signed a cheque for the cash that was to be paid on top of the vehicle in exchange for Honda Civic.
The next day, Tasawwar went to the guy in Islamabad who was in possession of the Civic?s registration book and asked for complete documents. The guy handed them over as promised byHuzaifa bhai.
Meanwhile, the guy called huzaifa bhai and said he is blocking the cheque that was handed over on top of the vehicle exchanged and will only release once the transfer letter of the Civic is provided to him. Huzaifa bhai told him not to do this as it was against the deal and it was transfer letter for the transfer letter not the money paid on top as every single document and material with both the cars had been already exchanged except the letters.
Huzaifa bhai presented the cheque in the bank nevertheless shortly after his call, but the bank staff told the account had been blocked. Therefore, he decided to wait for Thursday, the time when the guy agreed to provide the transfer letter for the exchanged vehicle and Huzaifa bhai agreed to write a transfer letter for the civic. Meanwhile, the guy called a few times and information was exchanged over the phone regarding the documents due to be exchanged.
On Thursday, on the fourth day of the deal, Tasawwar turned off the phone number he was using to communicate and went off the grid completely.
On Friday, Huzaifa bhai went to Islamabad to inquire the situation. In the motor vehicle registration department, he was shocked to find out the Honda Civic already transferred to Tasawwar?s name. Upon checking the file of the exchanged vehicle, another shocking revelation was the file being blocked and the transfer letter being totally bogus with FAKE ID card of the previous owner attached to it. The file was attached with a notification because the payment of the car had not been cleared to the previous owner by Tasawwar.
Later investigations on personal as well as Police basis, it turned out the guy is a professional FRAUDSTER and has done this to several people, the vehicle exchanged for the Civic probably belonged to one of the earlier victims. He belongs to District Chakwal.
The addresses he provides on the Pakhwheels online ads are totally bogus.
As of the moment, the guy is on a run, probably having sold the Honda Civic already in exchange for a Toyota Premio. He posted the ad on Pakwheels which was closed later on and was replaced with the ad of Premio.
I request you all to please BEWARE of this guy and help us, in any way possible if you?ve seen the Honda Civic, if you know the guy somehow, or if you can provide valuable data regarding the Phone numbers he has been using to contact people etc?
The details of the person, contact numbers and pictures are being posted below for the ID of the culprit. Please come forward if you have any sort of knowledge about this guy or if you have seen this Honda Civic in your neighborhood.
