A website called CanadianAutoFinders.ca bills itself as a fee-based service that helps people sell their cars, but a CBC investigation has found its money-back guarantee leaves much to be desired.
The two-year-old company, with head offices in Calgary, advertises its services across the country. But on Tuesday, after a CBC investigation into its operations, a company spokesman said it was shutting down.
Mathew Green of Winnipeg, who has been trying to sell his truck for more than a year, said he got a call from a representative of CanadianAutoFinders.ca a week after listing his truck on a competing vehicle-selling website.
"They assured me that people were interested, and they wanted the vehicle.Â It was just a matter of me going through this process through them, and everything would be fine," he told CBC News on Monday.©CBC news
