ASE name used in fraudulent used car scam

ASE, the dealer business management company, has discovered that a French company is fraudulently using its name as a front to sell used cars in the UK.

The French business is using the name Automotive Services Europe, one of ASE’s subsidiary companies, and set up a website and Facebook page using ASE’s web address and global head office contact details in the UK as a front to sell used cars.

Rob Jones, chief executive of ASE, (pictured) said: “We knew it was serious when two men arrived at our offices to view a car, as a result it is now lodged with the Fraud Squad who have issued a Crime Reference Number and requested that all enquiries are reported via their Action Fraud Hotline, details of both can be found on our website

“Additionally we wish to assure our clients that we have not started selling used cars.”
