AG Sues Dealer for Failing to Deliver Titles

AG Sues Dealer for Failing to Deliver Titles Featured

The Ohio attorney general announced a lawsuit against a Cleveland used-car dealership accused of failing to deliver motor vehicle titles.
Ohio Auto Credit LLC and its owners are accused of violating Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act by failing to deliver titles and making misrepresentations to consumers.
According to the lawsuit, Ohio Auto Credit last operated at 15150 Lorain Ave. in Cleveland.
In the past year, the Ohio attorney general’s office received 12 complaints against the dealership. Many of the complaints involved title problems; with consumers saying they failed to receive a title after buying a vehicle from Ohio Auto Credit.
The Ohio attorney general’s office worked to help resolve consumer complaints, in some cases by making payments from the Title Defect Rescission Fund, a program that helps reimburse consumers when a dealership fails to provide a title as required by law. To date, more than $27,000 from the fund has been used to resolve title complaints against Ohio Auto Credit.
In the lawsuit, the attorney general seeks reimbursement for consumers, reimbursement for the Title Defect Rescission Fund, an end to any violations of the Consumer Sales Practices Act, and an order prohibiting Ohio Auto Credit’s owners, Mark Gallo and Tim Campbell, from maintaining an auto dealer license in Ohio
