The Ohio attorney general announced a consumer protection lawsuit against a former used car dealership and its owners who failed to deliver vehicle titles to customers in southwest Ohio.  

“The car title is 90 percent of ownership,” said Dave Yost, attorney general. “These guys were ripping customers off for 90 percent of the value of the deal, and they’re not going to be able to do it anymore.”
 
The lawsuit accuses Jeremy Skeens and Kristopher Wolff of violating Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act and Certificate of Motor Vehicle Title Act. Their used car dealership, Economy Motors, was located at 3030 Glenhills Way, Cincinnati. The business also went by the name Gas Hogs.
 
Ohio’s Consumer Protection Section provided a total of $18,820 to eight customers who said they never received titles for vehicles purchased at the dealership. The payments were made from the Title Defect Recision Fund, a program that helps used car buyers resolve title problems.  
 
The lawsuit filed in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court seeks reimbursement from Skeens and Wolff, as well as civil penalties and an order preventing them from holding dealer or salesperson licenses in Ohio.
