Mobility scooter trader could face jail

A ROGUE trader faces jail if he breaches an injunction ordering him to trade fairly and legally.

Amarjit Gill, 49, of ABM Mobility in Long Eaton, was given a six-month suspended sentence and barred from misleading customers and using aggressive sales tactics at a hearing in December.

It followed an investigation by Derbyshire County Council’s trading standards, which received more than 100 complaints.

Jude Richard Inglis at Nottingham County Court extended the injunction until 2015 last Thursday.

The court was told Gill, of Giltbrook, had deceived customers and failed to tell them they had a seven day ‘cooling off’ period.

The injunction orders him to tell customers about their right to cancel and to honour refunds. He must not mislead customers by claiming to act on behalf of a Government body or use aggressive sales tactics and must supply goods that are fit for purpose.

If he breaches the injunction he could be jailed.
