It appears as though the New York Atty. Gen. has clamped down on a number of large, franchised dealerships. It appears as though the New York Atty. Gen. has clamped down on dealerships selling a product which is produced, distributed and presumably created by a company called Credit Forget it. In June of last year the New York State Atty. Gen. assessed a tremendously large fine against the company called Credit Forget It. It appears as though the fine assessed against this company was in excess of $14 million. The New York State Atty. Gen. apparently considered the product improper and should not be sold with an in conjunction with the financing of automobiles.
After the New York Atty. Gen. shut down this company they then proceeded against all the dealerships were selling the product. It appears as though the allegations are that the dealerships were improperly selling the product, asserting that it was free one was not and selling a product that was in essence worthless. This is my take from the articles which have been published on the Internet. The following is contained in one of the articles:
According to the lawsuit, the Koeppel dealerships used deceptive sales tactics, including charging consumers for services while concealing such charges from the consumers, or by misrepresenting that the services were free. In fact, law enforcement indicated consumers did not receive the credit repair and identity theft protection services for which they were charged.
