(Since there was no such car nor price in the first place).
Well, for one of the victim he refused pointblank that he is not going to return the money. The reason given was, the bank's agent is absconding with the money he gave.

This looks more like one of those email prize-winning scams if you ask me, Kishore. No hard feelings. I sold my 1997 Carb Gypsy King Hard Top to a very close friend for 1.7 lakhs. And that was only because it was to a friend.

Anyway real glad that you got your money back.

Beware of this Dealer my dear Bangaloreans. Im one the victims fallen for his trap. Interestingly, a colleague of mine who is a member of Team-bhp has also been cheated by this guy. This Dealer is smart in handling his customers. His office is in posh Kormangala layout. It is well furnished and has a tv lounge like in car showrooms. He advertises regulary in times of india. He not only tries to cheat on cars but also on real estate deals. I had been to Tumkur road when he insisted to take a look at a car in ICICI yard. But i discoverd from one of my friends who works in ICICI carloans that there is no yard in Tumkur road. I spent two hours getting there and two more hours in searching the parking yard. He is not even giving me the registration number of the vehicle. I read this thread after paying him the money. Too little Too late. nevertheless, it saved me from paying him a little more which i had promised him. He has said he will return my money by this weekend. I am just hoping he does.

Guys, If you or any of your friends have been cheated by this guy Imran, Citi Carz , behind BDA comples koramangala, please contact Kishore or me. We can surely help you in getting back the money.

Congratulations on getting your money back.

MODS: Can I request you to change the title to the thread to something appropiate like - Tricks used by a used car dealer by using bank's name or something. I am suggesting this as there is not even an inch of ICICI's involvement in this case expect the "car buyer" having transferred the money from his account to the car dealers.

I agree with Amtak. " Dealers and Seized vehicles" would be appropriate i guess.

I think the best way to teach this crook a lesson is to report it to the media channel TV9, They will make such a story out of this that no other dealer will dare to do this on customers. if we have 3 victims on our very own Team BHP where there are so many guys to help imagine how many he would have cheated who does not know how to deal in such situations. if bkishore is ready then definitely this can reach the media and lot of other customers will be saved from such crooks.

I'm game for it. But I don't have any proof of this malpractice now since I returned the cheque and the agreement when he returned my cash. One of the victim does not have the cheque nor the agreement. but another victim have both. I will speak to my friends here and find out if they are willing to proceed. Any members who have conatcts in TV9. ?

Default A call to all Team-bhpians

Please do not buy any vehicle through Mr Imran city carz. This does not mean that there are no seized vehicles available in the market.But it is better to locate a bank manager in charge of seizing vehicles.Initially i was behind buying seized car.But for many people cars are a valuable thing which was materialization of a dream and painfully purchased by the owner only to be seized by goondas appointed by the so called bank.If u can see the pain in the owner's eyes you will never ever go for a seized vehicle.But a reliance money manager who seizes vehicles stays in my apartment.If anyone is interested i can connect you to him.With him atleast you will not be dealing with some thug.But i do not endorse the idea at all.You can pm me if necessary.He had a Mercedes C class for sale for under 10 lakhs probably a year or 2 old.A superb for 15 lakhs or so(almost new old shape) etc....But just think about it if it is really worth going that route...

This thread itself is enough proof, You dont have to provide them any documents as such. Contact someone from TV9 and explain everything that has happened and they will plan out how to trap him. You dont even have to disclose your identity. If someone on Team bhp has contact with TV9 then it would be more easy to carry out the job.

Default Possible to buy a good Siezed Car.

It is possible to buy a good siezed car from any bank if, like a few other people have mentioned, you know the staff members of the bank's collection unit. I know a few people from HDFC bank and am trying to get a good Octavia if possible through them.
The proccess is pretty simple though time consuming and irritating.
1. Go to the collection center of any bank and get a list of the cars currently lying with them.
2. Decide on a car/s of your choice based on the price, kms run, make etc.
3. Get the location of that car ( banks have multiple yards) from the concerned official.
4. The bank will issue a letter or a "gate pass" to show to the guard at the godown for the inspection of the locked vehicle.
5. There is usually a landline phone with the guard of the yard. Call up and fix a time. A few banks may also send a representative of the bank or a driver to open the vehicle for you. This depends on your level of contact with the bank.
6. If you like the vehicle, then come back to the bank and enquire about the remaining loan balance on the vehicle including the transfer charges with the RTO from the previous onwer to your name.
7. A few banks do not refinance cars which have defaulted so the payment arrangements need to be made accordingly.
8. Make the payment and collect the receipt which mentions a few details about the car to be purchased like the registration number, the model, make etc.
9. Fix up an appointment with the bank's RTO agent ( most of them have connections with multiple agents) and meet up at the relavant RTO office, sign the required forms, get the ownership transferrred to your name.
10 Collect the vehicle from the godown after a Delivery Letter/Order is issued from the bank.

Hey Guys, I got my money back. My special thanks to bkishore_77 & freewheelburnin. Team-bhp has really saved me from what could have been a disaster. I'm very happy and decided to go for a new Safari.

the question still remains in my mind: what is done with the cars seized by the banks for defaulted car loans?
