A married We Buy Any Car worker pestered a customer with "creepy" texts offering a "better deal".
Harley Gambetta has revealed WhatsApp messages from a now-fired salesman for the renowned firm who persistently tried asking her out.
The 26-year-old said the three or four day bombardment included "vile" suggestion of a sexual favour, leaving her anxious and keen to warn others.
After taking her Citroen C1 to her local WBAC branch, Harley from Brighton, East Sussex, was told: “I can do you a better deal if you make it worthwhile for me?"
The salesman sent a string of desperate messages to insurance worker Harley, demanding she "let him know" about meeting outside of work.
Harley said: “It was a bit creepy. I just dread to think what might have happened if I was naïve enough to go back to meet him, thinking I would get a better deal.
“The whole episode dragged on over three or four days and made me really anxious. It was a weird thing to do,” she continued.
We Buy Any Car is a car buying service with over 350 branches in the UK.
Harley said she was keen to ensure the same man did not target any other women the same way, The Sun reports.
She added: “There were around half a dozen calls in total, and the suggestion I would get more money by making it worthwhile for him is vile.

“As a young woman it made me want to warn others about the behaviour of this guy because so much dreadful stuff goes on these days."
