The Arab Council of Touring and Automobile Clubs (ACTAC) joins the battle against mileage fraud. This crime affects up to 40% of used cars and causes of 5.6-9.6 billion Euros of financial damage in Europe alone. ACTAC estimates that the pro data in the 18 Arab countries might be even higher.
“Artificially lowering the mileage of a car today is a simple, cheap manipulation, which allows for the inflation of a vehicle’s value, in most cases by several thousand dollars,” said Mohammed Ben Sulayem, ACTAC Chairman and the FIA Vice President.
ACTAC plans on spreading awareness and strengthening the knowledge about mileage fraud by distributing the FIA policy guidelines to all the member Clubs and national governments.
