Angry 2005 scenic 11

Bought this car in February from a private cowboy in the UK for 2450.
After viewing the car and reading up bit from this forum, unfortunately, not enough, i tackled him about the dash and he said it had been changed, he had advertised the car as having done 75k miles, at this point, i knew nothing about the clock being set back to zero miles. To cut a long story short, on 2 lots of repairs i have spent 1600 (i live in France) and 3 weeks after having the cam belt and water pump replaced, the engine has died. I contacted Renault about the dash to confirm if it had been changed and they said it was done at 52k miles and the clock set to zero,. so in fact, i though i was buying a low mileage car, but actually, it had done 126k miles! Can't afford a new engine, waiting til i can afford a re-con one, then sell it, lost a shed load of money on the s**t car and will never touch another renault as long as i live!
