BIG WARNING - BEWARE !
J&J Wholesale Cars, Liverpool NSW Worst dodgy used car dealer in Sydney
25, 2016: The examples given below are but a few. Wikifrauds gets at
least one complaint a week about these scammers, far too many to
publish. All are the same - people have paid good money for bad cars
that breakdown and never get fixed. In some cases, people have paid for
cars and not received the cars nor been able to get their money back.
Others have been stuck with massive repair bills and no warranty. Nearly all cars sold are unroadworthy
but have been supplied with dodgy certificates (pink slips). We haven't
kept count of the complaints but estimate it to be well over 100 since
we first published. Again, DO NOT do business with this outfit or you will be in a world of pain.

DO NOT DEAL WITH THESE SHONKS!
Now trading as Auswide Wholesale Cars, Villawood NSW
THEY ARE PROFESSIONAL CRIMINAL FRAUDSTERS and FULL-TIME LIARS

They have only been in business under this name since September last
year (2014). We believe they formerly traded as WDA Wholesale Direct Dealers
Pty Ltd. They are not members of the Motor Traders Association (MTA). They are however known to Fair Trading over a dozens of consumer complaints.
Feb 26, 2015:
Used car buyers should not
purchase vehicles from this company without a full independant
mechanical and body check undertaken by a recognised service such as
Wikifrauds has evidence of a disgraceful sale that took place this week
concerning a totally unroadworthy vehicle sold with a dodgy certificate
and by misrepresentation. Please stay away from this untrustworthy and dishonest dealer. Everything that comes out of their mouths is lies.
Example: Purchase of Landcruiser
It was agreed in writing between a customer
and this dealer that the vehicle was to be delivered Sunday Feb 22,
was not delivered until the following Tuesday. The customer lost 2 days
work at that point by waiting at home for a car that "was on its
way".When it finally arrived, it was rolled off
the tow truck because it wouldn't start. The tow truck driver didn't
want to help.
Client called the dealer who responded,"what do you want me to do about
it, it drove fine onto the tow truck, saw it with my own eyes". Client
called Fair Trading NSW. They said not to do anything to the car until
a mechanic looked at it, ie do not buy new battery etc. Client called a
mechanic who came to try to jump start it. The battery was flat and
still wouldn't start with jumper leads. Investigations found a melted
ignition fuse. The car did NOT drive itself onto the truck. Impossible.
Client still has the melted fuse. Vehicle then assessed by a properly
qualified independent NRMA technician and was found to be in a
dangerous and unroadworthy condition. A rough estimate of $4000 neeed
to be spent to
pass the mandatory roadworthy tests and certification. The NRMA report
stated that it was not to be driven as it was in a dangerous condition.
The paperwork that came with the vehicle was supposed to include a 12
month warranty but that was not supplied. There was a certificate of
roadworthy (completed by some dodgy mechanic who will be dealt with by
the Roads and Maritime Services, formerly the RTA) and the RMS transfer
document only. The client asked the
dealer about the missing warranty and they simply said they forgot it.
No contract of sale has been provided as required by law. (And, the
does not display his licence number on his website, also required by
The client asked for full refund. The dealer reluctantly agreed but at
the client's cost to return car, which required another truck at a
quoted cost of $250, and the dealer will not refund any money without
the car in their possession.
The client has lodged a complaint with Fair Trading NSW and requested
their assistance. On their advice a demand was emailed to the dealer
yesterday, Feb 26, for the dealer to refund all money paid.
Telephone discussions between the dealer and the client reveal that the
dealer received the demand but ignored it. The dealer re-stated that
even if the vehicle was on a truck at the dealership, he couldn't
guarantee an immediate refund as "only the bosses can do that". In fact
the person on the phone was a 'Jay' or 'James', and he is

on this dangerous and unroadworthy vehicle:
Cick here to see advert showing 12 months warranty
which the client did not receive. Note in the description that the kilometers driven show as 0 - nil, zero! This is also illegal advertising.
March 10, 2015 - Still no response from dealer and still no refund to client!
March 17, 2015: This story gets worse by the day! Clear case of fraud:
It turns out from a check with the RTA, that the vehicle in
question does not belong to the dealer. So this shonky dealer has sold
a vehicle that is not theirs to sell, and have therefore obtained a
financial benefit by deception and misrepresentation, which is the definition of fraud.
This will be reported to the NSW Fraud Squad
in the next day or so.
, on March 16 these scammers offered to float the truck
back and then refund the customer's money. A tow truck took possession
of the vehicle at 2.30pm today and it was confirmed by the dealer that
it was received by them. They promised to refund the money immediately,
and send a copy of the deposit transaction to the client. As at 6.30pm
this has not happened. The client has phoned several times and was told
that they were doing it right then!
Update March 19, 2015: The client has finally received her money back
in full. However she remains out of pocket for the two days wages she
lost waiting for the vehicle to arrive and still stressed at the worry
and insulting manner with which she was treated by this "Alister"
character, whoever he is.

First of all I'm not your mate!
Secondly, I have now stated that the money has been
refunded. (of course you know that the client took two days unpaid leave waiting
for the car to arrive when promised, so whilst you have refunded the amount
paid, she lost two days pay and went through a lot of stress)
Thirdly, and because of the totally rude and "get
stuffed" attitude taken by your staff to both victims, I am doing nothing
further. Innocent car buyers should be aware of the antics your team gets up to
once you have their money. One of them might be the next buyer of that dangerous
I've worked in the retail motor industry for
over 30 years and have never come across a more disgusting bunch of cowboys and

As I said I would, I did consider removing the page

ok see you soon john
Second complaint: The following email came in to us late Monday March 9. It is pasted directly from the email:
"I just rang this "car yard" and after explaining briefly what I was calling
about, I asked what the managers nane was and got her to spell it for me. I then
requested to speak to the manager "Jamie McAllister" (if thats his real name)
and she told me he was in a "meeting". I said I really needed to talk with him.
She then said, "I have another call" and hung up on me!
I waited about 10 minutes then called back from a different number and
asked to talk with Mr Jamie McAllister. She then put me through. I spoke with
him and explained my daughter had purchased the said vehicle and had just taken
it in for a rego check (we knew it was up for rego within a month of purchase
but thought it was roadworthy as she'd only just bought it from a car yard!!
)... well... I went on to list the things that were wrong with the vehicle to
which he said it wasnt his problem. I replied.. well actually it is because you
are a car yard and you sold my daughter an unroadworthy vehicle which is still
under warranty. He said the vehicle had no warranty due to blah blah... to which
I said it was as I'd already rang fair trading and the vehicle was under the
required 160,000 kms and it was also less than 10 years old. He then said he
didn't have to talk to me as the vehicle was sold to her and the rego was in her
name which meant she was the owner. I corrected him on this as well and
explained rego doesn't prove ownership. ... whoever paid for the vehicle owns it
and that would be me! He told me I need to check my facts cause I don't know
what I'm talking about.... I restated the above and told him as a car dealer I'm
surprised as obviously he doesn't know what he's talking about. He then said he
didn't want to talk about this vehicle..... I went on to day that I rang to
explain the situation and ask what he was prepared to do about it to help out my
daughter... after all what you did was sell her an unroadworthy vehicle. ..
which is against the law... and I'm giving you an opportunity to correct this.
He said no I'm not going to do anything. I asked him again.... and he said
no.... that it wasn't his problem basically. I told him I would take this back
to Fair Trading and then I said, this proves you are not only a f#%king arsehole
but a snake as well. I then hung up. I plan to lodge a formal complaint with
Fair Trading and any other organisation who I find online to complain about this

Sounds all too familiar. And this Jamie McCallister character is probably using a false name.
We received the following from a Facebook blog:
ever buy from these people. Serious scammers & ripped off a friend
of mine ... not the first time they have done this either!"
June 04, 2015 New complaint just in:
The following email arrived today. We have withheld the name but have no doubt it is factual. Will these ratbags ever learn:
June 18, another complaint:
"I purchased my car from wholesale direct autos in September 2014 (a Mazda 2 Neo)
These are by far the worst people to deal with , i bought a car and then
went for rego to find it was un road worthy , i gave them the list and took it
back .... end story they bodged all work and then passed the rego and then got
it home to find out that it is not road worthy.
So now i have a car that is usless and if something went wrong could have
hurt or killed my Family ..
Fair Trading is being involved and RTA will be onto the person who passed
These people should be locked up becuase what they are doing is just as
close to attempted murder selling cars like this
Two days later it broke down out of no where, approaching traffic lights
the engine just stopped. After calling the dealership and expressing my
frustration they agreed to send a tow truck and fix it through there mechanics.
Me and my partner sat on the side of the road for an hour and a half and nothing
arrived. I called back and was told no tow truck was coming it's not there
problem and spoke to me very aggressive but agreed to still fix it. I got a tow
truck from my own money $100 and they agreed to fix it. I called and spoke with
a man named John who told me to deal with him as he was the manager. He advised
me the engine had blown and started accusing me of overheating the car
purposely. (What because I was 21, a girl? I must of purposely done it, the
idiot) but agreed to put a new engine in
After a month on and off calling I could never get past the receptionist
who said various dates it would be done by, it was never done.
I contacted fair training who referred me to the tribunal and my case was
heard in December 2014. They had until January 2015 to pay and didn't. I tried
to call and there number was disconnected. I looked up there ABN (on ABN lookup)
and realised they had closed and reopened as j&j wholesale in early January
I have no idea where to go now.
I have a court order for wholesale direct auto to pay me but I've been told
unless I can prove they are the same company as j&j wholesale I haven't got
a leg to stand on, I would have to go back through the tribunal
I know it's the same company
They advertised my car on there new j&j wholesale website after
shutting down wholesale direct autos"
We understand this car has now been re-sold by J&J and still they
refuse to refund the client's money. Wikifrauds has undertaken to
assist the client in bringing charges of fraud, theft and conversion
against Jay Macalister and his company. This IS NOT a simple civil
matter any lnger, it is a criminal matter.
If you are having problems with this outfit, contact us
or go to the Department of Fair Trading NSW and the RMS?RTA. Dealers like
this and their dodgy "cash" mechanics put people's lives at risk.
June 27 2015: Next complaint:
I have researched the company online that I recently purchased a car from
at Liverpool, I am one of the lucky ones from what I've read I poured $4500 into
a ford territory 7weeks ago to find out now it will need thousands of dollars of
repairs to pass a pink slip, from my understanding the vehicle is over 5 years
old should be sold with a pink slip, I rang the car yard to ask about this , the
guy told me that the inspection number is on my paper work wich I found so I
rang the rta and they said they haven't even heard of that pink slip number
provided , so now I'm trying to battle them to fix my car, I thought I'd tell
our story to try and stop these crooks from operating, I have also emailed to
current affairs in regards to these crooks
