  • Buying using the internet? Be aware!

    There have been a number of social media posts recently concerning a seller based in North Wales who is going by the name of Dewi Ditchfield. Apparently he has a number of other internet profiles, but this one seems to be the most prolific. He advertises parts for a number of car ranges including ours, and requests payment in advance of sending them to the buyer, but won't accept PayPal.

    The general concensus of those who have been impacted by this person, is NOT to deal with them in any form. If you are making purchases from non-commercial advertisers, then ensure that you only pay by credit card or PayPal so that you are protected should something go wrong with the transaction.

    If you have any detailed information concerning the person mentioned above, then it would be beneficial if that information was reported to the correct authorities.
