CONTROVERSIAL car dealers who have been lying low amid a storm of complaints over defective cars and bouncing refund cheques are back in business – in the same premises as a sexy underwear shop and boutique.

The Daily Echo can reveal that Stan Rudgley and Richard Burbage have resurfaced after closing Hampshire dealerships following fury over cars they were selling and breaking promises to make amends.

In the latest twist to the saga, the pair are now involved in a new online car dealership, Valley Cars – which operates from the same premises as a shop selling ladies lingerie called Ophelia’s Boutique.

Daily Echo:

It is located in a rented space in the Botley Mills complex, in Botley.

That boutique firm is run by Lorraine Burbage, the wife of Richard Burbage.

Valley Cars uses the same phone number as the boutique, which sells dresses, lingerie and corsets.

Daily Echo:

When the Daily Echo turned up there yesterday, Mr Rudgley was photographed before disappearing soon after.

Mr and Mrs Burbage, who live in Botley, both owe more than 11 million Australian dollars to hundreds of people after the demise of a firm they owned, We Buy Any Car, in Australia, which copied the name of the successful British online car seller but had no connection to that firm.

They suddenly left their luxury home in Brisbane in 2012 following a flurry of media reports of angry motorists who had given them their cars to sell but got nothing back. New South Wales authorities have since banned Mr Burbage from being a director for ten years.

As revealed by the Daily Echo, Mr Burbage has been connected to Woolston Car Supermarket, in Southampton, which closed suddenly in January amid mounting complaints over vehicles they were selling – leaving customers demanding repairs or refunds in the lurch.

Horror stories about cars they sold include someone buying a previously written-off vehicle and a car fitted with unregistered plates, while others were found to be dangerous.

Some people – in many cases hard-pressed families – handed their cars back for repairs and claim they were not returned to them before the company closed, despite having bought the cars.

Daily Echo inquiries discovered that the Woolston dealership had actually moved 12 miles down the road to an industrial estate in Fareham, opening up as Fort Wallington Car Sales, with the same director, Stan Rudgley.

Daily Echo reporters then confronted Mr Rudgley and he was filmed promising to make amends to people who bought faulty cars, as well as refunds – after issuing a string of bouncing cheques.

But just days later that dealership also shut up shop, leaving dozens of people in the lurch yet again.

Ever since, mystery has surrounded the whereabouts of Mr Rudgley, who also trades under the name Service 4 Life.

Last night Mr Rudgley made contact with the Daily Echo after we asked him to comment on the latest developments – but instead of revealing what was going on he unleashed a torrent of abuse by email.

Daily Echo:

Mrs Burbage was not responding to her mobile phone last night, while her husband was also unavailable. He insisted back in January that he had parted ways with Mr Rudgley.

As well as Woolston Car Supermarket, documents reveal that Mr Rudgley and Mr Burbage were connected to another firm at the same site in Hazel Road, in Woolston, called Hampshire Vehicle Sales.

Trading Standards are currently carrying out a detailed investigation into the two firms, in what a senior officer has described as one of the biggest cases of its kind in decades.

So far they are dealing with the cases of more than 60 customers.

A spokesman said: “The investigation into the dealings of the Woolston Car Supermarket and the traders associated with it is ongoing.

“This is a complex case that has impacted upon many people and we’d like to reassure those affected that as soon as Trading Standards are in a position to provide an update on the progress of the investigation they will do so.”

Ofcourse by then it will be too late and we will still be waiting for either the Police or Trading Standards to do something about it.

Botley Mills are very keen to see that all of their tenants conduct their businesses in an honest and trustworthy manner.

By 'sub letting' her unit to her husband to operate a second hand car business then I fear Ms Burbidge could be in breach of the T&Cs of the lease and could presumably have the lease terminated

They are also possibly also in breach of Eastleigh Councils planning permission as Botley Mills is NOT registered for used car sales. This could see Botley Mills in trouble too for infringing the planning regulations.

For the record. Mrs Burbage, you need to get YOUR facts straight. If you did YOUR research (and not listen to your husband), you will find that......

Your Husband has been BANNED from being a car trader for 10 years in Oz for reasons of impropriety. His licence was not revoked, (as you say) because his company collapsed.
As a Director, your Husband DID have financial control of the OZ business (and abused it to the hilt)
The Ferrari was never 'his', neither was the Lamborghini, the Bentley or even the other flash cars you drove. (With an 11 million loss from only a years trading - and driving these types of cars...your husband clearly has the right business nous and integrity!)
Customers, Employees and other creditors were not paid because of your husbands fraudulent behaviour and incompetence. As a shareholder YOU were actively involved and supported this behaviour. This is the subject of major investigations in Australia involving the Federal Police, the Australian Tax office, Department of Immigration and others. I expect they will be asking for your husbands 'attendance' back in Oz shortly.
Armand Diaga (your husbands business partner) foolishly trusted your husband, investing (and loosing) over 5 million in WBAC. He has a reputation that your husband could only dream of - and has been running multiple successful dealerships for 35 years. He is of good character, still has his traders licence, and does not hide behind people like Rudgely, Hassell, Overton etc. to make a living. The same can't be said for your husband,...... Just google his name.
As a Director, failing to carry out his duties and allowing the business to trade insolvent and subsequently fail (whilst living it up as a playboy in Melbourne, Thailand etc. with others), your husband will be held proportionally responsible (50%) for the losses (but of course, you understand Australian law and you already know that). Let's not forget other outstanding matters of theft and fraud down-under now that others have 'rolled over'.

You did not claim benefits in Oz because you can't when your on a Visa.
You won't claim benefits in the UK because you are dodging tax and need to be as invisible to the government and authorities as possible.

The Echo is doing a great job and will sell many more copies on the back of your delusional arrogance and your husbands sociopathic behaviour and contempt for the law.

I called the echo three times in the past few days to have Lorraine's comments removed. The daily echo would be able to confirm this with you.

My reason for this is that it was my fathers funeral that Lorraine talked about in such cold, callous and hurtful terms.

My dad was a good man, who did not deserve to be spoken about in such a way, and it is due to Lorraine's comment and the subsequent replies on this thread which mentioned my dad's funeral that led me to contact the echo.

I do not care what you write about Lorraine or the posting of the rest of her Facebook message on here, it is the knowledge that her disrespectful comment on the funeral is being reposted.

Please, I am asking this as a daughter grieving the loss of my dad who I loved dearly, consider deleting your comments and instead repost her message with the disgusting phrasing of the funeral blanked out?

The hurtful remarks made about dad will live forever on the internet, but you can control limiting the continued hurt caused to my mother and I at what is already an awful time.

I ask for you to please show us the consideration which she did not.

Thank you.

Dear Anothervictim,
Sincere condolences for your loss.
I have asked the Echo moderators to amend my previous re-post of sensitive and inconsiderate information written by Lorraine Burbage as you have requested.
Please accept my sincere apologies for any hurt or pain I may have caused by my actions.

It appears cars are being sold yet again from Fort Wallington Car Sales or should I say Service 4 Life or may be now I should be saying The Elite Car Company. Trading under it's from the same address as Fort Wallington Car Sales under Service 4 Life Ltd it appears not a lot has changed apart from it's now not an open show room but appointment only. May be they don't want The Southern Daily Echo tourning up on their doorstep again.

Please be aware in case this is another scam, sorry company under a new name.

Here are a couple of links, two to Ebay and one to gumtree where the vehicles are being sold. It appears that currently cars are not being sold on autotrader but if anyone knows different?

Please share this to stop them in their tracks.
