Simply Buy any car is the biggest scam ever in Dubai.
I checked my car value on the site www.simplybuyanycar.com just to know how much the value has depreciated.
Their Online evaluation estimated my German Car value, 1 year 5 months old, barely driven, GCC, with warranty and and service pack for 133, 000 AED.
This seemed nice, but I did not proceed with booking an appointment, as I wasnt keen on selling. Within 5 mins I received a call from their Sales Agents. The face of this scams name was 'Shirin', who spoke in super swag style how amazing their site is, and all the buullS#it, and I should head over to Al-Barsha RTA and they would have a better estimate once I will be there. Long story short.. I fell for it. I decided to burn my time by listening to this lady's pretty bogus talks.
Head over there, a Paki desk boy, decides to throw all accent and apparently 'Help' me out as he claims. Amazingly, right at this point, few potential customers decide to call me up as well for the car (seemed to be unrelated to SimplyBuyanyCar, but is it co-incidence, they call me right at this hour ?) and ask me all sorts of BS questions, like they have never seen a Beamer, merc Porche or Audi.
This is so amazingly staged, that the Dood "helping" me, tells me he has 4 cars listed on local classifieds, and how amazing simply sell any car is, because they are "helping" people.
He heads to the car, the dood decides to click some horrific blurred images of my car, doesnt bother asking me even one question of model, HP, Service history - nada, and takes a tiny little drive of the RTA compound.
Through out the drive he is complimenting on how amazing the car is, and Im really lucky to own it. Parks and takes me back inside To "help" me with the pricing. Replies with 50k, yes, he doesnt even blink - 50k for my car which their website evaluated was for 133, 000 only 3 hours ago. And Laughs his guts out with tongue in cheek. I bet he gets paid few extra quids for this tongue-in-cheek BS that compliments his ###ed fake accent and cool 'SWAAG" with a half baldish haircut.
Meanwhile, in the middle of this, I got hold of another "Helpful" agent of Simplysellanycar and asked what do they do with these cars.
He said they sell the cars locally, So I was like wow, so can show me some interesting cars I would like to upgrade. He tells me I will need to deposit 20, 000 Aed with them, and they will give me a link to their inventory, a website which is not public and I will get a secret password for it.
So I asked him, what was the deposit for - to which he responds - well, if you dont buy the car through us, your deposit wont be returned.
So wow, they drive our cars for free, without paying us nothing, but promising false prices and hassle free proceedings, but the fraudulent simplybuyanycar employees, have yet another trick up their sleeve to Gobble all your hard earned money.
Its shameful, how RTA is allowing such heinous activities in their premises. And how come no one has gotten these scamsters. Amazing UAE.
