to beware of possible scam company
For sale ... or is it?
Have your say
WOULD-BE caravan owners have been warned about a possible
scam which has already cost one man $18,000.
It comes after the buyer said he lost the money while attempting to buy a
The Caravan Industry Association of Australia said it had been made aware
of a WA business called Seven Stars Caravans which is offering second-hand
caravans and RVs for sale on the internet at temptingly low prices.
"We believe that Seven Stars Caravans is a scam and we have reported this
business to the ACCC," it said.
The association gave the following reasons:
* They claim to be a General Member of the Caravan Industry Association WA,
but they are not. We have written to them asking that they remove this
* They use the Caravan Industry Association WA logo on their website
despite not being a member of our association. We have written to them
asking that they remove our logo.
* The photos of the caravans and RVs they are selling appear to have been
sourced off the internet from various caravan dealers in the United
Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia.
* They claim to have a showroom in Karratha but they do not.
* Their website does not state where the vehicles they are selling are
* They do not hold a dealers licence in WA.
The association ‒ the peak body for Australia's caravan industry ‒ said it
believed the business encouraged people to pay a deposit for a RV which,
it alleges, they will never receive.
"We encourage consumers to be buyer aware," it said.
"If you have had any dealings with this business please report this to
Consumer Affairs in your state and to Scam Watch at ACCC."
Seven Stars Caravans shows an uncanny resemblance to a scam operated last
year by a "family-owned" company calling itself EM Caravans.
Photographs of low-priced RVs on Seven Stars Caravans and EM's websites
seem to have been sourced from other sites around the world.
Efforts by Caravanning News to contact Seven Stars were met
with a recorded message saying the number had been disconnected.
