A We Buy Any Car customer was attacked by “scary” texts and calls after she tried to sell her engine – including getting a discount for sex advocates.
Harley Gambetta, 26, was told the company would provide extra cash for her Citroen C1 if she connected with a “weird” salesperson she asked for a quote.
After first meeting him at her local WBAC branch, the married worker contacted her on his personal cell phone and said, “That’s me from We Buy Any Car . I’m taking a day off if you want to meet? ”
Then he said unsettlingly, “Can I make you a better deal if you make it worthwhile for me?”
The salesperson continued to call and text the shocking Harley insurance agent even as she declined his advances, asking her to “tell me” about the meeting outside of work.
The man who worked at We Buy Any Car in West Sussex, has been fired from the company advertised by Philip Schofield.
“I was just scared to think what could have happened if I had been naive enough to go back to him thinking I would get a better deal.
“The whole episode lasted more than three or four days and made me really nervous. That’s a strange thing to do.
“About half a dozen calls in total and the suggestion that I make more money by making it valuable to him was vile.
“As a young woman, it makes me want to warn others about this guy’s behavior because so many terrible things happen these days.”
We Buy Any Car says employees have only been with the company for a few weeks.
A spokesman said: “Following an immediate investigation, the employee was fired due to his misconduct.
“We do not condone his actions and they are not representative of the rest of our team.
“We sincerely apologize to Miss Gambetta for her experience.”
It follows a similar experience in July when a woman received ‘scary’ text from an NHS Watch and Follow-up staff member who knocked on her door to make sure she was in quarantine.
Model Charlotte Roffey, 27, was shocked after a man accessed her details to ask if he was allowed to save her number – and if she was married.
