Here at RS Motorhomes we are happy to see that Fraudsters don't go away so easily.

A Bromsgrove motorhome dealer has been sentenced to pay £16,656.87, to 12-months imprisonment suspended for two years, to serve 200 hours of unpaid work and a two-years-long disqualification for directorship after being found guilty of forged documents to hide a vehicle's history

Richard Cooper of Alpine Motorhome Ltd was convicted under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, the Fraud Act 2006 and the Forgery and Counterfeiting Act 1981.

The vehicle was advertised for £17,000 and without any reference to the fact that the vehicle had previously been involved in an accident and was written-off by the insurance.

The seller provided an HPI check which failed to identify the vehicle as having previously been involved in an accident and recorded as a Category C write off.
