  3. Car dealership seemingly unwilling to take responsibility for their staff’s actions, leaving the victim to cope with the severe repercussions on her own.

This poor lady got scammed big time in a PHV scam.

It’s one cray-cray story that nobody could have guessed would happen, especially with a known reputable company.

So, grab a snack and let me tell you all about this wildest ride of a scam story, aiyah!

The Scammed Life Chose Him

This poor sis, right, a PHV driver looking for a new car, stumbles upon this salesman Kent from Car Times Automobile.

She’s all excited, transfers money left and right, $10,000 here and $50,000 there because she wanna be the boss with a fabulous new ride, but it turns out to be a total nightmare, la!

Something’s Fishy

Imagine this – it’s time to collect her new dream car and guess what?

No car! Stud of a salesman tells her it’s delayed and still pending inspection.

So our sis, feeling uneasy, goes on to investigate because something ain’t right!

The Big Reveal

The plot thickens, bae – Car Times Automobile goes all, “Hey, hey, we never got your money, sis!”

And it seems like sneaky ol’ Kent sold the gal’s existing car somewhere else and vanished into thin air.

Our sis is left feeling more lost than a seagull in a parking lot, la!

Meanwhile, at Car Times…

Car Times, on the other hand, throws their hands up and acts all innocent.

“We didn’t do anything, aiyoh! It’s all on you and that dodgy salesman!”

Doesn’t seem like they’re gonna help our victim get her money or car back, huh?

Some Lessons Learned

Damn, though, sis, this is one crazy PHV scam story, right?

So, here are some takeaways from this whole shebang:

  • Always be super careful when dealing with money and car purchases. Trust nobody!
  • If something seems too good to be true, there’s a good chance it is.
  • Never let your guard down just because a company is reputable – always double-check everything!

And there you have it.

A terrible scam that left this poor lady down and out, with a famous company seemingly offering nothing but attitude and an unwillingness to aid their customer.

Seriously, think long and hard about the companies you support – can you trust them with all them dollar bills?

So, what’s your take on this?

Would you ever trust a company after something like this? Holla at me below, fam!
