A man in the United Arab Emirates who changed his car meter to lessen the mileage prior to selling it to a woman in Abu Dhabi for a high price has been ordered by the court to return her the Dh115,000 that she paid for buying the car.

A man in the United Arab Emirates who changed his car meter to lessen the mileage prior to selling it to a woman in Abu Dhabi for a high price has been ordered by the court to return her the Dh115,000 that she paid for buying the car.

The Abu Dhabi Court of First Insurance told the man to refund the woman’s money and take back his car after he was found guilty of changing the car meter and misleading the woman.

Official court documents said that the woman filed a case against the same person who sold her the car, asking that he return the money she paid him.

The woman stated that she purchased the vehicle from the Arab man for a price of Dh115,000 and used Dh2,000 for registering it in her name and for the insurance.

Later, she found that the mileage metre was altered.

When she investigated the problem with the help of mechanical experts, she discovered out that the real mileage at the time of buying was around 300,000 km. Still, the seller had reduced it to 65,000km after tampering with the meter.

She stated that she tried to give back the car to the man and ordered him to return her money, but he refused to pay. The seller then insisted that he did not do anything wrong with the car. This forced the woman to file a complaint against him in court.

In court, the man denied altering the meter of the vehicle and asserted that he had bought it from another person and that the meter had already been changed.
