A man and a woman have been arrested after police uncovered a crooked car dealer in Crevillente. Officers believe the couple scammed customers by tampering with the mileage clocks on prestige and luxury vehicles. The 34 and 35-year-old were arrested by Policia Nacional on charges of fraud and forging documents.

High-end vehicles were imported from Eastern block countries and taken to the workshop to have the odometers turned back – a practice known as ‘clocking’- and the cars were then sold through the company’s dealership.

Customers were completely unaware that the vehicles had high-mileage and paid premium process for low-mileage quality cars.

When officers raided the workshop and dealership they found 14 vehicles that had been clocked with some showing considerable changes. One car is believed to have travelled 100,000 more miles than shown on the odometer.
