JOHOR BARU: A web designer working in Singapore was forced to service a monthly instalment of RM1,700 for a car which he sold to a secondhand car dealer in September 2012.
Yeong Chee Heng, 32, said he sold his Toyota Caldina, purchased in 2010, to a secondhand car dealer in Plentong after signing all the necessary documents.
However, he got a shock when he received a call from the bank that he had an outstanding instalment amounting to RM21,000 from the past seven months.
“I immediately called up the salesman known as Allen but there was no answer.
“So I decided to go to the outlet in Plentong but the dealer was no longer in operation,” he told a press conference organised by MCA Public Services and Complaints Bureau chief Jason Teoh here yesterday.
Yeong said he paid a minimum of RM18,000 from the outstanding instalments with the help of relatives as the bank told him that he would be declared a bankrupt if he failed to pay the instalments and would jeopardise his employment in Singapore.
When he inspected his car insurance, he found an unknown man listed as the authorised driver.
Teoh said he had assisted the victim in lodging a police report and would help him follow up on the matter.
