He's got a receipt. The truck is used for his business called JWebster, sole trader. He bought it privately through an ad on Gumtree. He paid $50,000. He found the chasis was rusty when he got it home and began cleaning the truck up a bit. It's a 1989 Kenworth. (The fellow he brought it from is older and has cancer and can't work any further. Justin said he could see he was very sick and not working as he could hardly get out of the chair and walk outside! ). Justin owns a small and 5/6 ton excavator and bobcat with a small truck. He needed this larger truck to expand his business. Thanks. Lynne.

There is clearly some breaches of the Australian Consumer Law that can be raised.

Would you like to discuss this matter on the telephone ? I have extended a special offer to you if you prefer.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
