Lewis v Averay [1972]

Seller
advertised car for sale.
Rogue
posing as well-known TV actor Richard Greene offered to buy car.
Rogue
wrote out cheque, but seller not willing for him to have car until cheque
cleared.
Rogue
then produced various identity documents in name of Richard Greene.
Seller
then allowed rogue to have car in return for worthless cheque.
Defendant
bought car in good faith from rogue.
Court
of Appeal held seller intended to contract with person actually present before
him.
Contract
therefore merely voidable for fraud, meaning defendant got car not seller.
