Dodgy Burleigh Heads Car Salesman Slapped With Hefty Fine

Dealer Fleeced Three Car Buyers

Dodgy Burleigh Heads Car Salesman Slapped With Hefty Fine

A Burleigh Heads motor dealer has been slapped with a fine after admitting to some dodgy sales.

Peter Stuart Mitchell, trading as Burleigh Cars, pleaded guilty to two counts of accepting payment without supplying services and one count of making a false representation, after an investigation by the Office of Fair Trading.

The incidents happened between February 2016 and July 2017, with one buyer misled about the existence of a warranty, while two others payed for warranties, registration and transfers that were never processed.

He was ordered to pay $7,852 in fines and compensation by Southport Magistrates Court on Monday.
