FER warns against fraudsters

The Federation of Engine Remanufacturers (FER) warns there has been “an increase in fraudulent activity” by some engine remanufacturers. FER president John Gray (left) urged companies to report any suspicious engine remanufacturers – and says that some have even increased prices for sub-standard and unprofessional work. “Defrauding customers is a serious crime and one that deeply affects the pocket of motorists and the reputation of engine remanufacturers,” he said. “Although a company may look professional with a highly polished website and branding, it is important to carry out research beforehand.” FER says that four men were recently convicted of conspiracy to defraud through two engine remanufacturing companies. “More often than not, the work was reported as shoddy and would not meet agreed timescales. However, initial customer complaints were met with false excuses or worse, some were threatened and intimidated into paying up.”
