Fake Plant Sales Website - tradex-direct-vehicles.com


We are a trade company specialized in the sale and supply of used trucks, trailers, agricultural machinery including used farm tractors, combines, forklifts and plant machinery.

Starting out as a sole trader in 2000, I worked within the motor trade for 8 years buying and selling cars from the trade to the trade.

In 2007 I turned into a limited company and changed the name from MARTIN TRUCKS LTD to TRADEX DIRECT VEHICLES LTD with the aim of concentrating on selling quality Euipment and Vehicles to the retail customer at discount prices with minimal overheads ultimately saving customers money on quality retail equipment.

By 2008 the company had flourished and we started to import new equipment from overseas as well as going upmarket in the quality of used tractors that we sold, selling tractors from 5,000 GBP to more than 50,000 GBP.

Today we find ourselves in a very competitive market with tractors supermarkets and internet companies offering the customer much more choice and freedom.

We have 3 dedicated members of staff, Joseph as mentioned earlier is my sales advisor and the owner of this company. he also controls all of the websites, internet systems, administration and finance. he also manages all 75 products we tend to carry in stock! if there is anything he doesnt know about equipment its not worth knowing! my other 2 members of staff are my cousin and his son, Henry and Frederick, both valeting technicians. they have worked here for over 12 years! their attention to detail is fantastic and their role is to get that showroom look on your new car using the latest approved autoglym products.

All of the tractors and equipment offered in our showroom are owned by myself and are physically available to view and buy not like many companies who first of all sell the car then try to buy later or offer cars and take big deposits so that they can fund the purchase of your new car.

TRADEX DIRECT VEHICLES LTD hope to offer expert impartial advice to any customer enquiring about any used item of plant or machinery we might have to offer. Our aim is rapid growth, be active and as honest as possible, the way we would wish to be treated!

We will guarantee a stress-free transaction! We will make you a happy customer! We will guarantee your satisfaction to make you happy!

All the pictures on this page http://tradex-direct-vehicles.com/shipping.php are stolen from other websites - to give the appearance that they're a large company that has shipped lots of vehicles, when in reality, they've shipped nothing at all as they don't exist.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

CAR ADVERTS - If a car seller mentions escrow - he's scamming you Never ever for any reason pay anything until you have seen and inspected the vehicle

Well that's a load of rubbish!

He is confusing two different banks
and sort code 20-57-06 is a Barclays branch in Mile End Leicestershire.

I don't quite know why Barclays sorting codes are so confusing, but this sorting code - 20-57-06 - is actually assigned to Barclays Bank plc., Mile End branch in London. Leicester is merely a back office customer contact point.

Hi everyone,

We lost a bigger amount of money in 2016, and despite we are full of evidence and did all necessary steps, still no result.

I suppose he used his methods for ages, and there must be many harmed person and companies. There must be many investigation against him.

Now I am here because I would like to ask if there is anyone else here fraud by him or if anyone knows if he was catched.
