A Nottinghamshire used van dealer made more than £100,000 in
under a year by winding millions of miles off odometers a court has
heard.

Maxwell Alvey, 50, from Arnold pleaded guilty to 10 charges of
fraud at Nottingham Crown Court.

Trading Standards Agency officers investigated Alvey’s business
after receiving complaints about wear and tear on vehicles with
relatively low mileages. In the worst example seen by the court,
Alvey took almost 300,000 miles off the odometer of a Mercedes
van.

The case follows an announcement last week by
vehicle history specialist HPI that it has undertaken 150m
readings, accompanied by advice to consumers about how to
spot a clocked vehicl
e.

Alvey is awaiting sentence.
