Office of Fair Trading : Car boot traders – Caboolture
The Office of Fair Trading is warning consumers of reports of people selling home entertainment systems from the back of a white van in the Caboolture area.
Goods sold out of the back of a vehicle are usually overpriced, damaged or do not live up to what's promised.
Buyers have no way to get a refund or exchange if the item is faulty, as car boot traders usually vanish after the sale.
If you think you have seen these traders, contact the Office of Fair Trading on 13 QGOV (13 74 68) so we can track their movements and warn other consumers.
