    Anyone know Matt from Mafia Motorsport?

    He does a bit of building for time attack and the BDC and when I popped to see his unit and a car had for sale I did recognise quite a few of the cars he had there.

    The reason why I'm asking is that my dad bought a car from him that needed a bit of engine work to be perfect ( bent conrod) and agreed to pay half the cost of the car and engine work back in March and the other half on completion. He has had minimal contact since then and for the last couple of months has not heard anything. Matt has not been responding to any of his messages or phone calls or my WhatsApp messages so he's a little bit concerned that he spent all this money and has nothing to show for it.

    I get that Matt also works for a Formula 1 team and may be busy, but at least he could let us know something because of the moment my dad is getting quite frustrated and is on the verge of taking him to court to recover his money.

    If anyone can help or knows him please let me know by PM.

    Thanks.

    I ask if my buddy's uncle probably knows him. He went on a Formula 1 event and he met the team. Too bad about your dad's issue with Matt. I'm coming over to my buddy's garage this week for the installation of the headache rack and bed cover from 4Wheelonline onto his truck. I'll ask his uncle if he still got a contact there.

    Cheers guys. Dad has still had no contact since agreeing in march a 3 month time frame and paid a significant deposit. It's now 6 months and he hasn't replied to phone calls, messages or letters. Dad just wants the car as agreed. Or his money back and I help him source something else. It's beyond a joke now d we're both getting rather pissed off with the whole thing.

    BTW, I'm not on Facebook so can't see anything there.

    Any help in resolving this would be appreciated. My dad is in his 70's and was looking forward to having a fun car again and father/son trips out in our cars. We've now missed this summers worth of opportunities.

    Let me know if I can help, I'm on Facebook far too much. You could write a letter and send it to his business signed for with a request for refund and return of the car. Then you'd have no denying he got it.

    Cheers guys. Your help and advice is most welcome.

    Kervin is his surname. The companies house entry is a bit worrying though. Could anyone send me a screenshot of the car recently posted please? I'll pm my number if you need it although so many on here had it a few years ago and it's not changed...

    I can't see a car that he's been selling recently, and his business page is quiet back to December 2020.

    Hi guys. Little update.

    Still no contact from Matt despite phone calls, texts and WhatsApp and now several letters. Dad is more than a bit angry now and the next step looks like taking him to court unless anything is heard in the next 2 weeks.

    This may well end up costing Matt rather more than the car or refunding the money he owes my dad as, its a bit cliche but, dad knows where he works and who he works for and letters will be sent there as well.

    All he has to do is honour the deal he agreed to in April. It ain't hard!!!

    Not to sound like a warrior, but has your Dad been there? If you let us know where it is, I'm sure someone local would be happy to scout it out and see if he's still there. I know I'd be fuming in that situation.

    So I go past Rushden every weekend on my way to see friends, and Wymington is right by Rushden. Is he likely to work weekends? And what is the car?
