Breaches of consumer protection laws by Revolution Motors has led to Imran Khadam being banned from being a company director.
Revolution Motors traded in Oldham until its liquidation in July 2013 leaving its customers £81,485 out of pocket.
An investigation by the Insolvency Service ruled that the company was conducting business in a manner that was “to the detriment of, or not in the best interests of, its customers”.
Between August 2010 and July 2013, while Khadam was a director, Revolution Motors misled customers by providing incorrect and insufficient information about vehicles prior to purchase.
The company also omitted information and provided important information in an unclear, unintelligible or ambiguous manner, in breach of the consumer protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, and sold vehicles that were not as described, said the Insolvency Service.
It also used terms and conditions that unlawfully restricted customers’ rights.
Khadam, now aged 34 and residing in Oldham, has now been banned from becoming involved in the formation or management of a company for seven years.
Robert Clarke, group leader for insolvent investigations, north, said: “The Insolvency Service will not hesitate to take action against directors who fail to adhere to the standards required of them and to remove irresponsible and culpable directors from operating with the benefit of limited liability in the business environment.”
