FOLLOWS: Page1 28 ______________________________________________________________________________________ COMPLAINT 2 I GENERAL ALLEGATIONS 1 This is an unfortunate story of greed, fraud, and financial elder abuse committed by 3 sophisticated auto dealers and their agents, at FRAUDULENT CAR DEALERSHIP (“CAR 4 BRAND” and/or “DEFENDANT”) against a Plaintiff, a 74 year-old man (a protected class of 1 5 “elders” / “seniors”) In California Plaintiff was present at Defendant’s car dealership on or 6 7 around 10/3/14 (it being noted that some of the Documents were signed on 10/2/14 and some on 8 10/3/14) Plaintiff had been seeking to a quote to get his vehicle (a 2006 ______) repaired 9 Plaintiff was informed there was no possible way the vehicle could be fixed, even though he was 10 at a __________ approved service station Instead, Plaintiff was informed that he would need to 11 12 buy a new car, and was thereafter lead around the lot by an overly aggressive salesperson (in 13 information and belief “FRAUDULENT SALESPERSON”) and thereafter pressured and 14 coerced into purchasing a new car from the dealership 15 16 2 Based on Plaintiff reasonably believing, based on Defendant’s representations, that there were no other options (ie being under duress, alone and scared), and, and that the vehicle 17 18 could not be fixed, which Plaintiff alleges is false, deceptive, malicious and known to be false 19 when the statement was made (by the sales representative who Plaintiff alleges was authorized to 20 speak on behalf of the dealership), Plaintiff thereinafter was induced, under false pretenses, to 21 enter into a sales contract with Defendant’s automotive Dealership 22 3 This alone, makes Defendant’s conduct unconscionable, intentional, malicious, and 23 fraudulent and warrants punitive damages being imposed 25 4 Attached as Exhibit “A” and incorporated herein by reference is a true and correct 26 copy of an alleged repair review that was allegedly undertaken in regard to the condition of the 27 vehicle The report states that the vehicle “would not start” and there was an issue with the 28 ______________________________________________________________________________________ COMPLAINT Page1 24 1 “alternator” The report states that Defendant’s “perform complimentary multi-point inspection” 2 (allegedly for no charge) and performed a “tire air pressure check” (as if tire pressure was for 3 some reason an important issue)” This was apparently the extent of the INSPECTION before 4 advising Plaintiff that his car could not be fixed, and that he needed to purchase a new car if he 5 wanted to get back home 6 7 5 Again, there was no charge for the alleged tire pressure check, although a 108 charge 8 was noted on the report The report (Page 1 of 1) makes no reference to any need for a new 9 radiator, or fuel pump, timing wheel, new tires, brakes, and other items Defendant’s counsel has 10 subsequently informed Plaintiff’s counsel was checked This is disputed as wholly false and 11 12 13 fraudulent Plaintiff disputes that the brakes, or timing wheel were checked when the car was not alleged to be in running condition 14 6 In short, Defendants are seeking to cover their tracks and Plaintiff alleges they had no 15 intent to inspect, or review the vehicle, and on information and belief alleges the vehicle was not 16 properly inspected, although incurring a 10800 charge Plaintiff alleges this amount was 17 18 demanded in bad faith 19 7 Defendant’s thereafter, knowing Plaintiff was “retired” and on a limited budget, 20 steered Plaintiff to, and pressured him into purchasing a brand new 2015 _________ using high 21 pressure sales tactics aimed at coercing a sale 22 8 Plaintiff was informed that ___________offered “0% financing” programs and that 23 24 25 26 if Plaintiff’s credit was good enough, he could potentially qualify for such programs 9 Based on these representations, which Plaintiff alleges were false when made, and reasonably relied on by Plaintiff, he entered the showroom and was taken to a closing desk Page1 27 28 ______________________________________________________________________________________ COMPLAINT 1 10 Plaintiff alleges his credit was run (although at this stage of the litigation Plaintiff 2 denies signing and agreeing to the pulling of his credit, as all pages of the Credit application have 3 not been provided by Defendant’s counsel) 4 5 11 Plaintiff alleges his credit score was 833 (excellent credit qualifying Plaintiff for the best interest rates including 0% financing alleged to be available) 6 7 12 Despite this near perfect credit, Plaintiff was informed that he did not qualify for 0% 8 financing (his credit scores were not shown to Plaintiff) and instead, he was informed the interest 9 rate would be 489% for 72 months financing (resulting in a finance charge of 5,17277) 10 Plaintiff alleges this amount was taken and appropriated in bad faith 11 12 13 Attached as Exhibit “B” is a true and correct copy of a “Federal Truth in Lending 13 Disclosures” statement indicating Plaintiff’s monthly payment would be 52601 (note that this 14 is in excess of the 52409 set forth in Exhibit “C”) This amount is alleged to be confusing, in 15 violation of TILA, misleading to the ordinary consumer, and predatory as not a financing 16 arrangement made in good faith with a fair conscience toward the ability to repay based on 17 18 Plaintiff’s retired status, and based upon his living on a fixed income 19 14 Plaintiff alleges he was not instructed to or pressured to buy any lesser priced vehicle 20 that perhaps he could afford on his limited fixed income, and instead was steered to as much car 21 as Plaintiff’s could try to hope to get away with 22 15 Plaintiff also alleges that although Defendant’s website indicated prices of 23 24 _________ are in the 22,000 range, the final sales price to Defendant on the TIL statement was 25 indicated to be 24,190 Plaintiff alleges that he is being discriminated against, in regard to 26 pricing and mere 200 trade in value (discussed below), because of his age in violation of the Page1 27 28 ______________________________________________________________________________________ COMPLAINT 1 2 Equal Credit Opportunity Act) See Exhibit “F” which is attached and incorporated herein by reference and represents a true and correct printout of Defendant’s website 3 16 Plaintiff was given a mere 200 for his vehicle (which he was all that it was worth, 4 and falsely informed could not be fixed at any price as set forth above), although Plaintiff is now 5 being informed, through Defense counsel, that the car COULD be fixed, albeit for 2,100 which 6 7 Plaintiff alleges to be false, and part of a cover-up designed to aid, abet, and assist perpetrating 8 financial elder abuse Plaintiff was never provided with any itemized amount to fix his car, and 9 no estimates, and to suggest otherwise is to assist in acts of financial elder abuse 10 17 Plaintiff estimates the value of his vehicle to be approximately no less than 3,072 at 11 12 the time the dealership took possession of the vehicle under false pretenses (Exhibit “E”) 13 18 In addition, Plaintiff was pressured, using high-pressure car salesman tactics, to 14 purchase additional unnecessary items (on information and belief, because the dealership had 15 “legs” built into the transaction so that forcing products upon Plaintiff became a required act 16 from a financing perspective) 17 18 19 Such items are referenced in the attached Exhibit “C” which is incorporated herein 19 by reference and represents a true and correct copy of a “Optional Products and Services 20 Disclosure” which indicates the items Plaintiff was informed “he needed” in order to purchase 21 the vehicle from the dealership 22 20 Plaintiff alleges he was pressured and coerced, under duress to purchase these items 23 25 26 27 one of which being a 1,49500 “exterior paint” product, which product, like all the other products, were not properly explained to Plaintiff and which he was pressured into accepting 21 Plaintiff alleges it is unconscionable to charge 7,76300 for these additional products (which appear to add up to 6,86800 on the TILA statement) making this document 28 ______________________________________________________________________________________ COMPLAINT Page1 24 1 false and misleading to the ordinary consumer The final TIL statement indicates an absence of 2 the “Tire and Wheel” product (which covered only 60 months, although the terms of the 3 financing were 72 months), which Exhibit “C” claims Plaintiff was to receive 4 5 21 The “Due Bill” (Exhibit “D”) indicates that Defendants were to “Apply _______ Paint and Fab PR”, Plaintiff alleges he was never informed of what this product is, nor has he 6 7 8 9 10 ever received such a product 22 Plaintiff alleges that the foregoing is malicious and oppressive and intended to, and is in fact causing severe mental and emotional distress 23 Plaintiff alleges that the conduct of Defendants, as alleged herein, is shocking, 11 12 13 extreme, outrageous and unconscionable resulting in a VOID transaction 24 WHERFORE, Plaintiff prays as follows: II THE PARTIES 25
