NORFOLK USED CAR DEALERSHIP HIT BIG FOR FRAUD

Comments Off

An arbitrator has awarded a woman over $114,000.00 in damages against Checkered Flag Motor Car Company in Norfolk after the woman allegedly told the sales rep that she wanted a one-owner vehicle in her price range that had not been wrecked.

The arbitrator found instead that the car had been owned by several owners; had been in a major front-end collision; and it had been repossessed.

Attorney John Cole Gayle, Jr. of Richmond represented the plaintiff and is quoted as saying that “the dealership contended that it was unaware of the vehicle’s history. That contention was refuted by the company’s own records, which showed multiple owners and the repossession, and the testimony of the owner of the car when it was wrecked.”
