tesla business model faces another legal battle

By Dan Gearino

A trade group for Ohio car dealers is asking a Franklin County court to rescind Tesla Motors’ license to sell new cars, citing what they say are violations of Ohio law.

The plaintiffs in the case also include several central Ohio dealer groups, such as Midwestern Auto Group of Dublin, Ricart Automotive of Groveport and several of the Germain family dealerships.

“If a license is not granted with proper authority, then that license should be rescinded,” said Sara Bruce, vice president of legal affairs for the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association.

The defendants are the Ohio Department of Public Safety, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and Tesla.

In the suit, which was filed in Franklin County Common Pleas Court, the dealers say that the state agencies improperly approved Tesla’s dealer license earlier this year because the company did not provide a copy of its contract with the manufacturer of the vehicles to be sold.

In this case, the manufacturer and the retailer are the same company, but the dealers say that the law still calls for proper documentation.

Even if Tesla had provided a contract, it would not have been valid because the law requires such an agreement to be between “two separate contracting parties,” Bruce said.

Tesla did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Earlier this month, Tesla opened a store at Easton, the automaker’s first retail outlet in Ohio.

Also this month, the auto dealers association made an unsuccessful attempt to get the Ohio General Assembly to outlaw Tesla’s business model.

The lawsuit is the next step in the dealers’ attempt to stop Tesla from gaining a foothold in the state.

Unlike most auto brands, Tesla sells its all-electric cars directly to consumers through company-owned stores.

This is different from the way established auto brands sell their products. Companies such as Ford, General Motors and Honda sell through a network of independently owned dealers.

Established dealers have raised concerns that Tesla’s model is opening the door for other automakers to open company-owned stores, which they say would undermine the concept of an independent dealer network.

The dealers say they are trying to preserve a system that employs 50,000 Ohioans, while Tesla says the dealers are monopolists who are wary of real competition.

Tesla has faced similar legislative and legal battles in other states.

cncda asks the critical question…..is the truecar business model legal in california ???

In the State of California, TrueCar is viewed as an autobroker and vehicles displayed and offered for sale on TrueCar websites are advertisements to the public and must comply with California law.

According California to it appears that many facets of the TrueCar/Zag broker program fail to comply with California law and such non-compliance could expose both TrueCar and participating new motor vehicle dealers to legal liability and/or license action.

Enjoy…

California says NO to TrueCar

In response to a large number of inquiries received from California dealer members, we requested outside legal counsel, Manning Leaver, Bruder & Berberich (who also authors the California Auto Dealer Advertising Law Manual), to research the occupational license status of TrueCar, Zag.com, Inc. and affiliates and opine on a variety of DMV licensing and advertising issues associated with the TrueCar program.  Attached (after the jump) please find a copy of an Executive Summary of a Memorandum prepared by outside counsel.

The Executive Summary identifies a number of problems with the TrueCar model that could expose participating dealers to legal and/or licensing liability. Dealers that participate in the TrueCar  program, or other similar programs, should individually review such programs with your own legal counsel for legal compliance.

Executive Summary of TrueCar Memorandum

Executive Summary of our memorandum to the California New Car Dealers Association in response to the Association’s request that we (1) review the occupational license status of TrueCar, Inc., and affiliates, Zag.com, Inc., Zag Automotive, LLC and Drive Your Dream (hereinafter collectively referred to as “TrueCar”); and (2) comment on potential occupational licensing and/or advertising issues associated with TrueCar’s brokering program and its websites. This memo is not intended, nor should it be received, as legal advice or a substitute for legal advice to California vehicle dealers. Dealers should consult with their own legal counsel for legal advice that may pertain to their situation.

CONCLUSION

TrueCar is an autobroker and vehicles displayed and offered for sale on TrueCar websites are advertisements to the public and must comply with California law. It appears that many facets of the TrueCar/Zag broker program fail to comply with California law and such non-compliance could expose both TrueCar and participating new motor vehicle dealers to legal liability and/or license action.

DISCUSSION

Zag.com is an Autobroker: Zag.com, Inc. (“Zag”) is licensed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles as an autobroker (License No. 67692). On its website (www.zag.com), Zag holds itself out to the public as “a TrueCar Company” and members of the public that visit the Zag homepage can click on a “Buy A Car” icon which will automatically transfer an internet user to the Drive Your Dream website (www.driveyourdream.zag.com) – which also indicates that it is “a TrueCar Company”. Likewise, the TrueCar website (www.truecar.com), although it has a different interface, operates in a similar manner as the Zag/driveyourdream website. (The above websites are referred to herein as the TrueCar websites.)

Dealers that participate in the TrueCar program are required to sign a Zag agreement which, among other things, requires the participating dealer to pay Zag a fee of $299 per new vehicle and $399 per used vehicle for each vehicle sold to a consumer through the TrueCar program. Vehicles offered for sale by new motor vehicle dealers that have signed an agreement with Zag are advertised on the TrueCar websites through use of Price Protection Certificates that are displayed on TrueCar websites and are downloadable by any web user. Zag invoices participating dealers monthly for each vehicle sold and requests participating dealers to remit payments to TrueCar.

The California Vehicle Code requires that all entities that broker the sale of vehicles obtain a dealer license, an autobroker endorsement to that license, and that they comply with a comprehensive regulatory scheme. Vehicle Code Section 232.5 defines “brokering” as follows:

Manning, Leaver, Bruder & Berberich

“Brokering” is an arrangement under which a dealer, for a fee or other consideration, regardless of the form or time of payment, provides or offers to provide the service of arranging, negotiating, assisting, or effectuating the purchase of a new or used motor vehicle, not owned by the
dealer, for another or others.

The manner in which TrueCar operates clearly falls within the Vehicle Code definition of “brokering”. TrueCar arranges and effectuates vehicle purchases for consumers, assists consumers in the purchasing process, obtains negotiated prices for consumers from selling dealers, and obtains a fee for its brokering services. TrueCar websites make the following statements to the public: “We secure a price guarantee for you.” “We provide you with a custom certificate that guarantees your deal.” “We search your local area to find dealers with no haggle prices.” TrueCar’s operation is unlike non-broker companies (e.g., Edmunds, Kelly BlueBook, etc.) which operate websites that contain generic vehicle and price information and may generate simple contact leads for dealers to pursue.

Non-Compliance with California Autobroker Law: Other than maintaining an autobroker license endorsement, we find no evidence that TrueCar is complying with a number of autobroker licensing requirements. Specifically, there is no evidence that: (1) there is a written broker agreement entered into with each consumer for whom TrueCar brokers a vehicle sales transaction and that a copy of it is provided to the consumer and selling dealer. [See Vehicle Code Section 11736(a).]; (2) TrueCar discloses to the consumer that it is an autobroker and that it receives a fee from the selling dealer for each vehicle for which it brokers a sale [See Vehicle Code Sections 11736(f) and 11738(d).]; and (3) that there is a disclosure on the face of the retail sale contract that a fee was paid to an autobroker and the name of the autobroker. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.1(x).]

Advertising Issues:

1. The Statements and Information on the TrueCar Websites are Advertisements under California Law: Whether statements, representations, and other content contained on TrueCar websites are “advertisements” governed by the California Vehicle Code and DMV Regulations depends on whether they are “intentionally communicated to the public generally for the purpose of arousing a desire to buy or patronize”. [See section 255.00 of Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations.] It is our opinion that enforcement agencies will most likely take the position that most of the content contained in TrueCar webpages are advertisements which must comply with California law. This assessment is made because the TrueCar websites are available to the public by simply entering the TrueCar website addresses into one’s web browser (much like web browsing an e-version of a newspaper). Some of TrueCar’s subsequent webpages are only accessible after entering a name, address, telephone number, and email address. However, any member of the public can do so and entering fictitious information will also permit an internet user to access those subsequent webpages. Moreover, it appears that an unlimited number of members of the public can enter a name and email address and obtain a Price Protection Certificate to use with the same dealer with regard to the same vehicle each consumer desires, lending more weight to the public nature of the advertising. TrueCar has initiated a national media campaign to drive members of the public to its websites for the purpose of effectuating vehicle sale transactions – for which it receives a fee of $299 or $399 from the selling dealer per vehicle sold. It is doubtful that any enforcement agency will take the position that TrueCar’s synchronized media campaign and websites are not intentionally communicated to the public generally for the purpose of arousing consumers to buy vehicles through its brokerage operation. For purposes of the discussion below and the conclusions concerning advertising law violations, we assume that representations and offers made on the TrueCar websites are advertisements made to the public generally. Also, as noted below, Business and Professions Code Section 17537.7 is an outright ban against invoice advertising and not subject to the to the public generally requirement of DMV Regulation 255.00.

Manning, Leaver, Bruder & Berberich

2. Advertising Violations: The following are problem areas in the TrueCar advertising: Autobroker Advertisements: The Vehicle Code permits an autobroker to advertise its brokering services (e.g., its ability to arrange or negotiate the sale of a new vehicle) but prohibits an autobroker from advertising the price or payment terms of any vehicle. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713(b)(1)(A).] TrueCar websites violate this provision.

Dealer Advertisements: Price Protection Certificates authorized by and containing the name of participating new motor vehicle dealers that are displayed on TrueCar websites will be enforced as advertisements against those dealers.

Invoice Advertising: The TrueCar websites are replete with references to “invoice” and use “invoice” as a benchmark when advertising vehicles for sale and in Price Protection Certificates that are displayed and which may be downloaded from the TrueCar websites. Invoice advertising of vehicles is strictly prohibited by California law. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.1(n) and Business and Professions Code Section 17537.7.]

Failure To Properly Describe Vehicle: Vehicles advertised on the TrueCar websites do not comply with the requirement to display the vehicle’s VIN or license number. There is an exception for providing this information when a class of five or more vehicles is being advertised that are the same make, model, and model-year. If such a class of vehicles does not exist for the price advertised, there would be an advertising law violation. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.1 (a).]

Advertised Vehicles Must Be in the Dealer’s Possession: DMV regulations require that vehicles advertised must be in the dealer’s possession or available to the dealer from the manufacturer. If the vehicle is not in the dealer’s possession, the advertisement must indicate that and include an estimate of a delivery date for the buyer. [See Section 260.04(a) of Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations.] Vehicles advertised with Price Protection Certificates may violate this regulation.

Pictures of Vehicles: Pictures of an advertised vehicle must be of the vehicle offered for sale. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713(s).] Many of the photos of vehicles on the TrueCar websites may have optional equipment (for example, upgraded rims or trim) not actually provided at the advertised price.

Total Price: It unlawful for a dealer to advertise the total price of a vehicle without including all costs except specified taxes and charges. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.1(b) and (c).] Advertisements on TrueCar websites do not appear to fully comply with this prohibition.

Failure To Sell at the Advertised Price: It is unlawful for a dealer to fail to sell a vehicle at an advertised price and any “specific vehicle advertised by a dealer or lessor-retailer shall be in condition to demonstrate and shall be willingly shown and sold at the advertised price and terms while such vehicle remains unsold or unleased, unless the advertisement states that the advertised price and terms are good only for a specific time and such time has elapsed. Advertised vehicles must be sold at or below the advertised price irrespective of whether or not the advertised price has been communicated to the purchaser”. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.1(e) and Section 260.04(b) of Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations.] There is nothing in the advertisements contained on the TrueCar websites that limits the time for which the price on a Price Protection Certificate is good. Also, the above statute and regulation require an advertising dealer to offer the advertised price to anyone,
whether they know of the advertised price or not.

Reasonably Expectable Demand: It is unlawful for a dealer to advertise vehicles at a specific price with the intent not to supply a reasonably expectable demand unless the advertisement discloses the number of vehicles in stock at the advertised price. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.1(i).]

Manning, Leaver, Bruder & Berberich

3. Some advertisements on the TrueCar websites open the door for a violation of this statute.

Incentive Advertising: It is unlawful for a dealer to advertise as the total price of a vehicle an amount that includes a rebate. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.16(e).] A review of TrueCar websites indicates that some Price Protection Certificate advertisements show a “My Price with Guarantee” amount which includes incentives, but no disclosure of the vehicle sales price before the deduction for factory incentives.

Bait and Switch: If a new motor vehicle dealer that participates in the TrueCar brokering program no longer has the vehicle for which its advertised Price Protection Certificate applies, never had the vehicle in the first place, or has the advertised vehicle but switches/up-sells a consumer to a different vehicle, there could be liability for “bait and switch” violations. [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.1(o).]

Regulation Z: Some TrueCar webpages estimate monthly financing payments without making proper Regulation Z disclosures (for example, showing an interest rate not designated as an APR). [See Vehicle Code Section 11713.16(d) and 226.24 of Title 12 of the Code of Federal Regulations.]

Dealers Are Liable for Advertisement on TrueCar Websites: A violation of one or more of the above-referenced laws constitutes grounds for the DMV to file an accusation to suspend or revoke a dealer’s license and a violation of most of the statutes is also a criminal misdemeanor. Aiding and abetting any person in the performance of any act that violates those statutes is also a violation. [See Vehicle Code Section 11700.3.] A violation of those statutes can also serve as a basis for a civil lawsuit for unfair competition and/or deceptive practices.

Unfair Competition: The TrueCar brokering program also raises serious questions of unfair competition. If TrueCar and its participating new motor vehicle dealers are able to circumvent California’s brokering and advertising laws, compliant dealers are put at a competitive disadvantage.

carwoo tommy goes to truecar

+++
By Auto Remarketing Editor Joe Overby

After a message surfaced on the CarWoo website informing visitors of the company’s shutdown, Auto Remarketing has confirmed with a TrueCar.com spokesperson that nine of 40 CarWoo employees are moving over to the TrueCar team, including CarWoo’s chief executive officer and co-founder.

TrueCar is also considering the option of buying “select CarWoo assets out of the foreclosure process,” the company spokesperson said.

Tommy McClung, CarWoo CEO and co-founder, will be vice president of product for TrueCar.

“CarWoo was founded with a mission to deliver the best car buying experience possible. In the end, TrueCar has emerged as the dominant force in helping to reshape automotive retail,” the TrueCar spokesperson told Auto Remarketing in an email.

“As a company that consistently seeks to identify, attract and retain best-in-class talent, TrueCar is excited to add the former CarWoo employees to our product and technology teams. Additionally, TrueCar will look to potentially purchase selected CarWoo assets out of the foreclosure process.”

Auto Remarketing will have more details if, and when, they emerge.

As of Thursday afternoon, the following statement was still posted to CarWoo.com:

CarWoo! is no longer accepting new car buyers as of 1/20/2014

CarWoo! was founded with a mission to deliver the best car buying experience possible. While CarWoo! is shutting its doors, our commitment to that mission remains as strong as ever.

To that end, a small group of us will be joining TrueCar, the negotiation-free car buying platform. CarWoo! helped hundreds of thousands of car buyers get a better experience. In the spirit of transparency, we believe TrueCar came up with a better way and has emerged as the dominant force in helping to reshape automotive retail. I see an incredible opportunity in this moment in time to take our successes and, equally important, our entrepreneurial learnings and apply it to what we believe will be the brand that forever changes how people buy cars.

I am personally proud to join the stellar group of innovators at TrueCar. Thank you to everyone that gave their heart and soul to CarWoo!. Our passion for building the best possible buying experience lives on.

Tommy McClung
President and CEO, CarWoo!

a red flag rules ITPP is a must if you are a car dealer offering credit

+++

Long delayed, enforcement of the Fair and Accurate Credit
Transaction Act (FACTA) Red Flags Rule finally began in January
2011. With this regulation in effect, it’s no longer enough to ensure
the proper disposal of sensitive information.

+++

Now, businesses of all kinds are required to create

and put in place a written Identity Theft Prevention Program ( ITPP )

– and can suffer civil penalties and
injunctions if found to be in noncompliance.

+++

What’s in it.
The Red Flags Rule spells out what compliance is – essentially,
what needs to go into the written plan. With a reasonable plan
in place, companies should be able to:
• Identify the so-called “red flags” – patterns and activities
that may indicate the presence of identity theft
• Build methods for detecting red flags into standard
business practices
• Document all responses taken in reaction to signs of
potential identity theft
• Update the plan over time to stay current with evolving
risk factors

+++

we offer a complete red flag program for $ 500.

Visit us for the Red Flag Program

+++

Fortunately, the Red Flags Rule “includes guidelines to help
financial institutions and creditors develop and implement a
Program, including a supplement that offers examples of red
flags.”

+++

Who should pay attention.
As with FACTA itself, the Red Flags Rule has implications for
organizations of all sizes and kinds.
Broadly, it covers two categories of businesses: “financial
institutions” and “creditors.” The definition of “financial institution”
is relatively straightforward:
• All banks, savings associations, and credit unions, regardless
of whether they hold a transaction account belonging to a
consumer; and
• Anyone else who directly or indirectly holds a transaction
account belonging to a consumer.

+++

As for “creditors,” that term covers a lot of ground. Inclusion is
based on three general criteria. Creditors:
• Obtain or use consumer reports in connection with a
credit transaction;
• Furnish information to consumer reporting agencies in
connection with a credit transaction; or
• Advance funds to – or on behalf of – someone, except
for funds for expenses incidental to a service provided by
the creditor to that person.

+++

Last-minute changes to the rule somewhat limited the scope of

what constitutes a “creditor,” but to date there are no hard-and

fast guidelines for which businesses fall under the rule and which
don’t.

+++

According to the Federal Trade Commission, “Examples of
groups that may fall within this definition are utilities, health care
providers, lawyers, accountants, and other professionals, and
telecommunications companies.” But the rule could theoretically
cover any company (or person) that provides a product or service
at a given time and accepts payment for it at a later date.

+++

If that’s not confusing enough, the rule only comes into play if
an organization holds consumer accounts “designed to permit
multiple payments or transactions – or any other account for
which there is a reasonably foreseeable risk of identity theft.”

+++

How to comply.
Because of the Red Flags Rule’s complexity and recent implementation,

it’s best to consult an attorney to see if your organization

falls under its jurisdiction.

You can also search the FTC website
for information on the rule and guidelines on creating an Identity
Theft Prevention Program.

what will i find in a nmvtis vehicle history report ???

What’s inside the vehicle history report?
The vehicle history report compiles all available records related to your VIN into a single report. It includes:

  • Detailed vehicle specifications
  • Current and history title records
  • Reported odometer readings & issues
  • Checks across 60+ potential title brands
  • The date and entity for title brands present
  • Records of total-loss reported by insurance companies
  • Records of salvage reported by junk and salvage yards
  • The contact information associated junk, salvage, and insurance entities

Where does the data come from?

The vehicle history data is supplied by the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS). States, insurance carriers, and salvage yards are required by federal law to report data to NMVTIS. According to NMVTIS, their data providers include over 9000 insurance carriers, auto recyclers, junk yards and salvage yards and their database includes over 40 million salvage or total loss records.
How do I get a report for my vehicle?

You can begin by running an instant lookup on your Vehicle Identification Number.

#runthevin…..avoid fake title scam

Fake Car Title Can Inflict Real Pain on Buyer
Every hour, on average, more than six cars and trucks are stolen in Los Angeles County, by far the riskiest place in California-and one of the worst in the country-to keep a set of wheels parked.

The majority of those vehicles are recovered, but every year about 8,000 owners in Los Angeles County-and about 21,000 statewide-never see their cars or trucks again. Unrecovered vehicles end up in foreign countries, are chopped up for parts, or are “washed”-resold with phony titles. A title is proof of ownership. A lot of people leave a vehicle title in the glove compartment, which is not a wise idea. With a legitimate title, a thief can easily and quickly sell a stolen vehicle, something that would be impossible without a clear title. And, as with counterfeit currency, a fake title leaves the holder hanging out to dry.

Although vehicle titles are often lost or are rejected for a variety of reasons, some as simple as a signature being written on the wrong line, they are one of the most important forms of consumer protection against being cheated in a used-car deal. Knowing something about titles and vehicle fraud can help you avoid falling victim to a scam artist.

The handling and processing of titles has not changed much in decades. The California Department of Motor Vehicles has experimented with electronic titles, but these are primarily for the convenience of banks and other financial institutions. According to the California DMV, only 215 of the state’s 5,000 chartered banks, credit unions and other vehicle-financing institutions use so-called paperless titles, and individual motorists are not allowed to have them.

The paper titles used in California conform to federal guidelines that are intended to make them difficult to counterfeit. Although widely referred to as “pink slips,” they are actually multicolor forms embossed with the state seal and imprinted with numerous watermarks that include a grizzly bear. The borders of the form are engraved with finely printed lines that are difficult to duplicate with precision.

Title fraud is not a specific crime, but it is usually prosecuted by local authorities as grand theft or under laws that forbid the submission of false documents. Even though title fraud is obviously widespread, it is difficult to know exactly by how much.
Private-party vehicle deals are the most likely situations in which people get cheated with fake titles. DMV investigators see a lot of title fraud executed by unlicensed used-car dealers, who often set up in shopping center parking lots.

A couple of precautions could save you the hassle of buying a stolen car with a fake title. Always ask to see the seller’s driver’s license. It may also be a fake, of course, but it’s worth a look and, if he doesn’t have one, it’s time to look for another car.

When you call a seller, never initially volunteer specific information that you read in the ad. Always say, “I’m calling about your car for sale.” If the seller asks “which one” or is hesitant or evasive with the answer, you may be dealing with a “curbstoner” who illegally sells used cars and trucks for a living, or with an unauthorized dealer.

Do not buy a vehicle from an individual who meets you at a location other than a personal residence. Watch to see that the person actually comes out of a residence, since one common scam is for a fraudulent seller to be working on the stolen car in front of a house in which he doesn’t live.

Another important step is to demand that the seller has a smog certificate for the vehicle, if it’s required by the state, because obtaining a smog certificate requires a legitimate vehicle registration. And, typically, stolen cars with phony titles are offered at unusually low prices to get the deals closed as quickly as possible.

The safest bet is to have both the seller and buyer meet at the DMV. If the seller resists for some evasive reason, that should be a warning.

You can perform your own Vehicle History Report. This may save you time, money, and headaches by revealing potential problems before they occur.

car dealer insurance agent convicted of fraud

Former agent who pocketed insurance premiums pleads guilty to fraud

News: 2014 Press Release

For Release: October 7, 2014
Media Calls Only: 916-492-3566
Former agent who pocketed insurance premiums pleads guilty to fraud

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Thomas Henry Morris, 72, pleaded guilty to one felony count of insurance fraud after he collected premiums and failed to pay over $133,000 in premiums to an insurer. Morris was sentenced to three years felony probation and 40 hours of community service. As part of his plea agreement, Morris paid $133,000 in restitution and will pay an additional $10,000 to the insurance company involved.

“This sentencing is a victory for consumers and insurers,” said Commissioner Dave Jones. “It was because of the combined efforts of the Department of Insurance and the Contra Costa County District Attorney that we were able to bring an end to the scheming and thieving of this individual and find justice for the aggrieved insurance company.”

Morris, who owns Morris & Associates Insurance Services Inc., carried out his scheme with a producer license that expired in 1994. He exposed auto dealerships to hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential liability by selling surety bonds, collecting the premium and pocketing the funds that belonged to the insurer.

The investigation began in September 2013 and revealed Morris was directly involved in conducting unlicensed insurance transactions. The criminal complaint was issued June 24, 2014 and Morris surrendered to the court the following day.

cheat the government…..go to prison

Export scammers’ gain is dealers’ pain

Feds seek headway against black-market rings

“This is a first of its kind prosecution, and I hope it will not be the last. These rings are far reaching,” said John Kacavas, the U.S. attorney for New Hampshire.
Automotive News
July 1, 2013 – 12:01 am ET

First it was a $70,000 Mercedes-Benz GL350. Then another one, followed by a BMW X6 and a Porsche Cayenne. All were paid for in cash.

Jane Goss, the town clerk and tax collector in tiny Sanbornton, N.H., realized something was fishy after a local man started coming into her office every few weeks to register high-end SUVs.

“I knew that he didn’t have the means to pay for these cars fully,” said Goss, who also noticed that the man never drove any of the vehicles to her office. “I don’t know of anybody in Sanbornton who can do that. By the fifth one, I said, ‘No, I can’t register this car.'”

Federal authorities say the man unwittingly had become part of a scheme that illegally exported thousands of luxury vehicles to China. In what has become a burgeoning black-market industry, exporters typically hire straw buyers in the United States and send vehicles overseas by claiming them as used on customs declarations. The buyers often never see the vehicles they claim to be purchasing for personal use.

High prices and heavy demand for luxury cars and SUVs in China, caused in part by 25 percent tariffs on imported new vehicles, mean scammers can often sell the vehicles for at least double what they would get in the United States. A new BMW X6 costs more than 1 million yuan in China, or about $171,500, compared with a U.S. starting price of $60,725; the Porsche Cayenne has a base price of 922,000 yuan, or about $148,750, in China, and $50,575 at U.S. dealerships.

Even after factoring in considerable shipping costs and other expenses, the exporters can make a huge profit on each vehicle by undercutting legitimate dealerships in China.

The schemes can cause big financial problems for U.S. dealerships, which are contractually prohibited from selling new vehicles to anyone who intends to export them and can be penalized by the automakers for doing so — even if they do so unwittingly.

Dealerships that sell to exporters may be forced to pay charge-backs, have incentives revoked and receive fewer vehicles from the factory in the future. Widespread fraudulent registrations also hurt dealerships that do not sell to exporters because such registrations understate the dealerships’ actual market shares, making it appear they are falling short of sales targets. That can affect bonuses paid by automakers as well as future allocations.

First prosecution

New Hampshire has been at the center of several large export schemes because it is the only state with neither a sales tax nor a requirement that vehicle owners carry insurance. Exporters maximize their profits by having vehicles titled there, even though many of the vehicles are bought elsewhere and never enter the state.

John Kacavas, the U.S. attorney for New Hampshire, recently announced that two California men pleaded guilty to federal mail fraud charges and violations of U.S. customs laws, in what officials say was the first successful prosecution of a major vehicle-exporting operation. The defendants admitted to scheming to export 93 vehicles worth more than $5.5 million that they and others bought in 16 states.

Authorities seized 14 of the vehicles at California’s Port of Long Beach and began forfeiture proceedings. The men, Frank Ku, 31, and Danny Hsu, 33, were fined $5,000 and sentenced to three years probation in May.

“This is a first of its kind prosecution, and I hope it will not be the last,” Kacavas told Automotive News, while declining to discuss investigations into any other operations. “These rings are far reaching. Some are operating on a scale much grander than Ku and Hsu.”

In the case, Kacavas said his office was more focused on trying to recover as many vehicles as possible and deterring additional exporting than sending Ku and Hsu to prison.

Court documents say Ku and Hsu found straw buyers by looking on Craigslist for ads posted by people who appeared to need money. Those buyers, who received “a few hundred dollars” for each vehicle they purchased, were not charged.

“Some of them were sort of hapless victims as far as we were concerned and not worthy of federal prosecution,” Kacavas said. “They made very little money from doing this.”

But for the exporters, he said, “it’s very lucrative.”

Ku and Hsu, who ran a company called CFLA, paid New Hampshire residents to use their addresses so they and other employees could falsely obtain local driver’s licenses. Court documents show they made some of the purchases themselves, in addition to using straw buyers, and in some cases they had an employee fly from California to pose as a straw buyer’s fiancee and handle all of the payment and paperwork.

Export scam

How the vehicle exporting scheme run by Frank Ku and Danny Hsu from October 2009 through March 2012 worked
• Ku and Hsu used Craigslist to find straw buyers and people who would let them use local addresses to obtain fake driver’s licenses.
• They or the straw buyers purchased high-end vehicles with checks from a local bank account. Straw buyers would earn several hundred dollars for each transaction.
• They applied for titles in New Hampshire, New Jersey and other states, claiming that each vehicle was for personal use and posing as the straw buyers when the Department of Motor Vehicles questioned the applications.
• Vehicles were shipped to the Port of Long Beach in California.
• After their titles were issued and forwarded to California, the vehicles were shipped overseas with export declarations that categorized them as used.
• When the vehicles got to China, Ku and Hsu delivered the vehicles to buyers who had ordered them in advance, often for more than double the U.S. price.
• They successfully exported 79 vehicles, and 14 more were seized in Long Beach. The average value of each vehicle was about $53,000.

Troopers issued warning

Goss, the clerk in Sanbornton, a town of about 3,000 people in the center of the state, said she had attended a class in which state troopers warned clerks to be on the lookout for suspicious registrations of high-end vehicles. The man she confronted started showing up about a year later, in late 2010.

When questioned by the town’s police chief, Stephen Hankard, the buyer readily acknowledged buying the SUVs for someone else and seemed unaware that he might be part of an illegitimate operation.

“He answered a Craigslist ad, and I think he honestly believed that what he was doing was legal,” Hankard said. “He seemed pretty confident in what he was saying.”

After alerting Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in March 2011, Hankard said, “police chiefs from all over the place started calling me” because their clerks had noticed unusual vehicle purchases as well.

The Sanbornton buyer has not been charged with a crime. Information he gave customs agents helped lead Kacavas in May to charge a Chinese national, Hong Chen, who runs several businesses based in Maryland and Virginia, with mail fraud and misuse of export declarations.

Chen and his businesses are accused of illegally exporting nearly 3,000 vehicles worth more than $157 million — an average of about $53,000 each — from February 2008 through March 2013. About 40 vehicles being prepared for export were seized at the Port of Newark in New Jersey in April, documents show.

Chen was arrested in May, and a judge recently agreed to delay his trial until later this summer to allow for negotiations between prosecutors and his lawyer, who did not return a call seeking comment.

Dealerships harmed

Detective Sgt. Andrew Player of the New Hampshire State Police said his agency has become more active in rooting out illegal vehicle exports, and legislators have discussed ways to make such crimes harder to pull off.

“It’s been going on for a while,” Player said. “We began to receive complaints from the automotive dealers themselves. They were concerned about what was going on and getting charge-backs.”

U.S. Customs regulations only allow new vehicles to be exported by their manufacturer, and still consider vehicles to be new if bought for resale purposes.

According to a deposition by the customs agent who investigated the Chen case, Mercedes-Benz USA has a policy allowing the company to impose the following penalties if it discovers that a vehicle was exported less than a year after being sold as new: “an administrative expense equal to 8.5 percent” of the suggested retail price, “any market support funds or special program discounts paid by MBUSA for that vehicle will be charged back” and “the dealership will lose one like-model unit on the next decade allocation.”

Paul Holloway, whose Holloway Automotive Group has two Mercedes-Benz stores and other dealerships in New Hampshire, said at an April news conference with Kacavas that his company had sustained losses “in the six figures” as a result of export schemes. “This is just a fraction of what’s going on,” Holloway’s partner, David Cushman, told the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.

Court documents in the Chen case say a 2010 Mercedes GL350 BlueTEC was bought in October 2010 from Holloway Motor Cars of Manchester and shipped to China about a month later. They show that only one of the four SUVs and crossovers registered in Sanbornton was bought in New Hampshire, with the others coming from Mercedes-Benz dealerships near Boston and a Porsche dealership outside Syracuse, N.Y., more than 300 miles away.

The X6 was bought at a BMW dealership — directly across the street from a police station — that officials said also fell victim to Ku and Hsu’s scheme.

State Investigators Arrest Two Riverside Men In Tax Fraud Probe

November 01, 2013

Posh home and Auto Sales Businesses Raided

State investigators with the Franchise Tax Board and Board of Equalization raided a million dollar-plus residence in Riverside and two automobile sales businesses Tuesday, October 29.   After serving the search warrants, investigators arrested Ahmad Mohamod Sami, 38 and Nader M. Sami, 45, both of Riverside.   According to the Riverside County Jail’s website, the two men were each booked on three felony charges including white collar crime, failure to turn over government money and filing false tax returns.

Investigators searched the homes on Wyndham Hill Drive and could be seen loading potential evidence into rented moving vans.  Parked on the two acre parcel were two Bentleys and a Jaguar, all with paper auto dealer plates on them.

Investigators also searched and removed items from A-one Auto Centers located in Riverside and San Bernardino.

“While this investigation has stirred up questions and intrigue among the public in Riverside, the investigators must go about their duties to determine what laws have been violated and see this case through the prosecution process,” said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents nearly 7,000 law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the State of California including investigators with the Franchise Tax Board.

got broker ???…..get louie bookout…..CBS

Los Angeles is filled with the world’s most fascinating jobs. It is the mecca of the entertainment industry where you can find yourself at a bar having a drink next to some really interesting people. From models to aspiring actors, musicians, agents, chauffeurs, personal assistants, all provide the backdrop to amazing stories. There is one person that truly has the most interesting job. Meet Louie Bookout.

 

Louie Bookout of Celebrity Business Services

Starting Small but Dreaming Big

Most people first met Louie Bookout on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listings when he delivered a Mercedes to the house of celebrity Real Estate Broker Chad Rogers. What most viewers didn’t know is that Louie Bookout has been providing elite Los Angeleans hard-to-find luxury cars for years.

Bookout began his company, Celebrity Business Services, 17 years ago. Celebrity Business Services is a thriving private car dealer in a world where the words car dealer and thriving are almost never used in the same sentence. It has been nearly 30 years since Bookout came to Los Angeles to make some quick money in order to get another business started. He left the business for a short time, only to return when he realized he loved working in the car industry. Bookout began his auto sales career working at a Mercedes dealership. He started as a sales representative, moved on to sales manager, then was in line for a general manager. He dreamed of owning his own dealership someday.

One of the buyers at Bookout’s dealership was an auto broker, meaning he was a middle man between the dealership and car buyers. Many of the broker’s clients were in the entertainment industry. Bookout noticed this man did not always seem happy, and was many times very grumpy. Even while grumpy, he still managed to sell 20 cars per month. “He was selling 20 cars a month, I figured that if I was doing the same thing, with a better attitude, I could sell 40 cars a month.” Today, in the midst of a tough economy, Bookout is doing just that. He estimates he sells approximately 40 to 50 cars per month. The cars he provides range from MercedesBMWs, and Bentleys, toRolls-Royce and Range Rovers. His clients are generally in the entertainment industry, from actors and actresses to agents, business managers, and accountants to the stars. It is safe to assume that Bookout’s rolodex is a who’s who of Hollywood’s Power Players.

Servicing Hollywood’s A-List

With that kind of client list, one would expect not to have many headaches over business. And there aren’t. “Many of my clients have business managers or accountants that handle where the money is going. The biggest hurdles are when I get a referral from one of my clients and the new client isn’t as established and they don’t have handlers yet. They still handle all of there own financial responsibilities. Many times those people don’t use me the way they need to.” Bookout looks out for his clients’ best interests. He will give them advice to help figure out what is the best deal for them. He also looks out for his relationships and his client list is very private. He guards that list like a lion and won’t dish any celebrity dirt. The only way to know if a person is a client of Bookout’s is if the car has his customized logo of a B with wings attached on the license plate holder. In one way he has built a brand, but also an elite club that few have access to.

No Advertising Necessary

From his first client to today, Louie still has never done any advertising or marketing. You won’t find a web site containing information about Celebrity Buying Services. You  won’t even find his office hours posted anywhere because he doesn’t have specific times that he works. Everything is word of mouth. He estimates that his retention rate is approximately 85%. It is the “Louie process” that sells. Clients simply call and request the type of car that they want. They may tell him certain options they prefer, whether or not they exist. From there Bookout handles everything. He finds the car whether it is in Los Angeles, or Cleveland, and coaches his clients on cost and financing options. He handles all of the paperwork, and in the end, delivers the car to their home or office. All of this service at no additional cost to his customer. For that he relies on his relationships with the dealerships.

There are only a handful of private car dealers such as Louie’s Bookout’s Celebrity Buying Services and Bookout is the only one who sells nationwide. While he calls Los Angeles home, he has clients in New York, Miami, Tennessee, and is even making a name for himself with elite casino executives in Las Vegas.

Bookout feels blessed with the success that Celebrity Buying Services has had and has maintained over a 17 year period. He knows he is fortunate that he doesn’t have to wake up and go to a dealership every morning. “The world is my dealership” is what Bookout says. He can research and get information over the internet. With technology today, all that is needed is a cell phone, fax machine, and the internet. The biggest reason for his success is because he has followed the path of doing what he loves. “Do what you love to do. If you took money out of the equation, what would you want to do for a living?” Bookout pondered that question and followed that path, learning he indeed could make a living out of doing what he loved.

motorsport market weighs in on the indiana car dealer license situation

we agree the indiana car dealer license scheme is problematic in california

+++++

Indiana dealer licenses: Good option or not?

Below are some of the issues to consider in getting an out-of-state (Indiana) dealer license vs. a California dealer license.

Wholesale Dealers Cannot Sell to the PublicThe Indiana dealer websites offer an Indiana wholesale dealer license. A wholesale license does not allow sales to the public. You will not be able to sell to the public through Craigslist, E-Bay, AutoTrader.com, etc., or even your own website. You cannot sell to friends, or relatives, either with the Indiana wholesale dealer license. You can only sell to other licensed dealers, or possibly export. To sell to the public, you need the California retail dealer license, available only through the California DMV.

Wholesale Dealer “Partnering” with a Retail DealerSome Indiana sites also offer to introduce you to a retail dealer that you can sell your cars to. This raises several other issues.

 

  • First, most retail dealers will have little or no interest in purchasing vehicles from you. They could have purchased the vehicle directly from the same dealer auction as you – without your commission.
  • Second, the sites promote that you can sell your vehicles to their retail dealers, and that these dealers will then sell to your buyers. What is not addressed is the practical issue of how you will obtain those buyers. As a wholesale dealer you cannot sell to the public, so therefore you are not permitted to advertise your vehicles to the public. To do so would be fraud, advertising vehicles to people you cannot sell to. You also cannot consign your cars to another dealer to have them sell your vehicles for you. That violates DMV regulations. So selling to another dealer to try and make retail profits with a wholesale license is not a viable business model.
  • Third, the retail dealers will not help you for free. You will need to pay them. This could be part of an ongoing “service fee” you will be required to pay to the Indiana business, or a commission for each vehicle, if any, the retail dealer might sell.

 

Ongoing ChargesThe Indiana dealer operations generally charge several hundred dollars per month to use their service. A California dealer license, on the other hand, requires no ongoing monthly fees. However, California dealers must have at least an office location, which is an ongoing expense. Then again, Indiana requires an office location too. The difference is that you pay the Indiana dealer business for the privilege of using their business location to get their license instead of rent for your own California office and dealer license. The savings, if any, would be the difference between the rent paid in California vs. the fees charged by the Indiana dealer business. Any savings, however, must still balanced with the other issues with having an out-of-state license vs. a California dealer license.

Office RentTo get a California wholesale dealer license, DMV requires only an office – no display area, nor any sign. Often times this means you can have a home office without any additional rent. You also avoid all the monthly charges for any out-of-state dealership service. Even if you do get an office, it only needs to be big enough for a desk or table, and a filing cabinet. You can even sublease space where other business are located to keep your office expenses very low. Then you have your own business location and presence in California, the state where you live, and the state in which you do business.

Changing from Wholesale to RetailIf you get an Indiana wholesale dealer license, that’s all you can be, a wholesale dealer selling to other dealers, or possibly exporting. However, if you get the California wholesale dealer license, you can always later covert to retail sales, or add a retail branch location to your wholesale license. In other words, you can start with a wholesale license (with very low overhead, maybe even a home office), and later get a new location with an office, display area big enough for 2 vehicles, and a two foot square sign, to get your retail license. Getting your California dealer license allows you to change to retail, or wholesale, at any time, and have as many locations as you want in California. The Indiana license does not.

Travel to IndianaTo get the Indiana dealer license, you will have to travel to Indiana. You will have to meet with the Indiana Secretary of State Compliance Officer to request approval for an Indiana dealer license. This is considerably more expensive, and time consuming, than attending any California dealer Pre-Licensing class to get your California dealer license. In addition, when reviewing their dealer license contracts, look to see which state’s laws apply to your dealership, and where any court,arbitraion, or other legal proceedings will have to take place. Chances are excellent you will be bound by Indiana law, and required to appear in Indiana to either collect money owed to you, or to defend yourself. No one wants problems, but if something does come up between you and another party, it is considerably easier and substantially less expensive to collect and defend in your own backyard.

Dealer Bonds and InsuranceAll dealers, Indiana or California, require a dealer bond and dealer insurance. The Indiana dealer businesses offer to sell you their bonds and their insurance, which is a nice service. On the other hand, we provide you the names and contact information for the bond and insurance companies that have recently provided California dealers the lowest rates. To make this list, these companies must be refered to us by dealers. We receive no kickback, or fee, from any company on this list. These companies make the list by providing the best rates and services, period.

“Sharing” a California Dealer’s LicenseSome sites are offering, for hundreds of dollars per month, to add you onto an existing dealer license in your state. This is not easy as few dealers will take the risk to do this. There are considerable risks for you too. These situations can be like arranged marriages where the parties don’t know each other but are put together and their fortunes and losses depend on the actions of the other. Potential issues include the following:

  • Cost. The money you pay every month to use the license is money you could have been investing in your own business and your own inventory, not theirs.
  • As a member of another business, you are subject to rights and obligations of all the others involved in that business, many, if not most of whom, you may never know.
  • Their dealer business could fail, through no fault of your own. Then you have no dealer rights. You cannot buy more vehicles, nor sell the vehicles you already own, potentially sticking you with inventory you cannot move.
  • Your business assets, including your inventory and money, are subject to being taken in a lawsuit because of actions by others using the same dealer license. The bottom line is that you will be responsible for protecting your assets, including attorney’s fees.
  • The more people that sign up for this arrangement, the more money the organizers make, and the less control you have. Your assets are also at greater risk with each new member that joins.
  • If you feel sharing a dealer license is a good deal for you, be certain to take the time to read the fine print on any contracts you are required to sign, or have an attorney review them. Also, ask all your questions, even if they seem silly. Make sure the answers provided match the written contracts you are asked to sign The contract are binding. What you are told to encourage you to sign them is not.

dmv retro license plates may make a revival

Retro license plate proposal on the move

California lawmakers can’t roll back gas prices or revive eight-track tape players, but they soon may offer motorists something else from decades past: replica license plates.

Assembly Bill 1658 would allow the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue plates resembling those of the 1950s, through ’80s for a fee – $50 initially, $40 per year – to cover administrative costs and raise money for environmental projects.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Los Angeles Democrat who proposed the bill, said it capitalizes on nostalgia and recent production of retro-style vehicles. “What’s old is new,” he says, “and it might make the state a little money, too.”

Plates would not be issued by the DMV until 7,500 had been ordered by the public. They would come in three classic designs, with black lettering on a yellow background, or yellow lettering on either a black or blue background.

The new plates would not be exact reproductions, however. Current plates have seven digits, for example, while those of decades past had six. Reflectivity and font-type standards also have changed through the decades.

AB 1658 received bipartisan support in the Assembly Transportation Committee, 14-0, and is awaiting action in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

used car startups bickering on quora

What’s the difference between the service provided by Beepi and Shift Cars?
+++
I’ll focus on the facts rather than just the marketing taglines.Differences for Sellers:Summary: Beepi is licensed to buy your car directly, Shift needs to wait until they find a private seller.

1. Both Beepi and Shift operate as marketplaces, but are licensed in different ways. Beepi operates with a dealer license, meaning they can buy your car directly from you whether or not a private buyer appears (Beepi guarantees a sale in 30 days or less). Shift doesn’t have the same licensing, meaning that they can connect a private buyer and private seller, but can’t actually purchase the vehicle from you. If it never sells, you don’t get paid.

2. Beepi sellers can continue to drive their vehicles until the car is purchased, and are paid at the time of pickup. Shift sellers have their car picked up and cannot continue to use it while Shift sends it out for test drives. Shift sellers will still officially own the car until Shift finds someone, but won’t be able to use it in the mean time. Again, if it doesn’t sell, you don’t get paid.

3. Beepi guarantees to beat any dealer offer by at least $1,000. Shift does not. Instead, they say that their payments are “typically much higher than a dealer trade-in quote” but that’s all that’s said on the matter. Your payment also depends on what Shift is able to sell it for, while Beepi uses a guaranteed offer after the inspection so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting ahead of time.

Differences for Buyers

Summary: Beepi serves much larger area with more developed suite of buyer-services. Shift offers faster test drives, but to small service area.

1. Beepi delivers directly to anywhere in California for 100% free, and delivers personally to anywhere in Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon for a small shipping charge. Beepi also works with third party shippers to deliver nationwide. Shift only delivers to the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles.

2. Shift does offer test drives without a purchase or deposit, but only within their limited service area. In contrast, Beepi delivers anywhere in the service area mentioned above once a buyer reserves a car, and buyers do get the chance to test drive their vehicles at the time of delivery.

3. Beepi’s money back guarantee is 10 days/1,000 miles, while Shift’s is only 7 days/250 miles.

4. Because Beepi has that dealer license, which Shift does not, Beepi purchases all their cars before transferring ownership to their buyers. Shift, like a consignment service, arranges a transaction between two private parties, but is not actually a party in the transaction themselves.

5. Beepi offers online financing applications, Shift does not.

6. Beepi includes a free 3 month, 3,000 mile warranty with all its cars, and has extended warranties for purchase. Shift does not have any added warranty options.

Hope that helps! Will check back in the comments tomorrow to see if there are any questions :)

Morgan Knutson – Founder & CCO at Shift Technologies.Adam Griffith – Marketplace Operations Lead at BeepiMy issue is that while both spin the differentiating aspects of their models in the best way possible as expected – Adam appears to accurately describe both models (and the additional detail is nice) while Morgan doesn’t play so nice.

I find it in contradiction to the spirit of innovation and shared progress in Silicon Valley the way Morgan has made patently misleading claims about Beepi in comparison to Shift.  That’s unfortunate, because both platforms have differentiating features that are more beneficial than the other depending on specific consumer preferences.

I do not work at Beepi so there may be many other claims (from either side) that are incorrect or misleading, but what I found unfair from Morgan’s answer was:

–  Claim: “Shift doesn’t spend an hour and a half in your driveway tinkeringwith your car like Beepi does.”
* Tinkering – Beepi performs a 280 point inspection.

– Claim: “We just take it off your hands and send you a check.”
* Shift sends a check IF the car sells.  Beepi sends a check no matter what after a maximum period of 30 days.

– Claim: “At Shift, your car sells in an average of 3 weeks for multiple thousands over a dealership, not just $1K.”
* Beepi sellers ALWAYS get paid in a firm period of 4 weeks, not anaverage of 3 weeks on Shift…if they get paid / the car actually sells.  That must mean some Shift customers wait months and / or have their car returned after being without a vehicle for some lengthy period of time, with no more $ in their pocket.
* Beepi guarantees the selling price of your car is at least $1k higher than the best dealership price.  Shift does not have any price guarantee.  The average sale price of cars sold on both Shift and Beepi seem to be multiple thousands of $ over dealership price.

– Claim: “Beepi takes longer to sell your car because the buyer can’t touch it or drive it.”
* Average 3 weeks sale time on Shift compared to guaranteed 4 weeks on Beepi.  Beepi average sale period is logically must be more impressive than 3 weeks.
* Beepi buyers DO TOUCH AND TEST upon delivery.  Beepi’s moneyback guarantee is 10 days for any reason.

– Claim: “The DIFFERENCES for buyers.”

* “You pay thousands less than at a dealer” on both Beepi and Shift, it’s not a difference.

* “You don’t have to have $20K in cash because we offer financing.”  Beepi offers financing as well, applying on behalf of consumers at traditional lending institutions.  I am highly skeptical that as a startup Shift (or its financing partner) are taking the considerable financial risk of extending large $ car loans to people with poor enough credit that the banks and credit unions Beepi utilizes for financing (think Well’s Fargo) are unwilling to stomach those same loans.  No difference but source of financing.

* “All of our cars are carefully inspected and certified” just like Beepi’s“and come with a no questions asked 7-day return policy”.  Beepi’s return policy is different because it is for 10 days and a max of 1,000 miles, while Shift’s is 7 days and 250 miles.

Hopefully this assists all of you prospective car buyers out there!

Well, the most important difference is that with Beepi you are GUARANTEED to sell your car in 30 days whereas with Shift you don’t have that guarantee and prospective buyers can go on a joyride with your car while you have neither the car nor the cash.Beepi promises $1000 more than ANY other offer you’ll get for your car (including Shift).The MOST important difference is that with Beepi you can continue driving your car until the last minute, that’s not the case with Shift which is, nothing much more than consignment (which existed for 80 years)

Not to embody their deceptiveness. We’re sick of people being taken advantage of.I posted the answer below as a reply to the original post by Florencia Resnik (sister of Beepi CEO Alejandro Resnik) which has now been changed to a person named “Florenece Sosa”. As well, another commenter alluded to being an objective observer but is also affiliated with a Beepi employee.

It’s this kind of deception that is precisely what we’re up against. 

My original comment is here but will soon also offer an objective table of our offerings without the snark.

With Shift you make more on a sale, spend less on a purchase, have complete peace of mind, and you don’t have to lift a finger.

The differences for sellers:

• Shift doesn’t spend an hour and a half in your driveway tinkering with your car like Beepi does. We just take it off your hands and send you a check.

• Because we take it off your hands, we’re able to fix dents, wear & tear, and other issues to increase the value of your car. For instance, repairing cosmetic issues and replacing brakes/tires can net thousands more for a car.

• We wash, detail, and photograph your car in our professional studio that we built. This also increases the value of your car.

• At Shift, your car sells in an average of 3 weeks for multiple thousands over a dealership, not just $1K.

• Beepi takes longer to sell your car because the buyer can’t touch it or drive it. A fundamental mistake, we believe.

• You get passive updates about the activity on your car, always staying informed.

The differences for buyers:

• You can test drive the car. We bring it to you, wherever you are in SF, within 45 minutes.

• You pay thousands less than at a dealer.

• You don’t have to have $20K in cash because we offer financing.

• You don’t have to fill out 4 pages of a web form because Shift takes care of all the legwork including title transfers and DMV paperwork.

• All of our cars are carefully inspected and certified and come with a no questions asked 7-day return policy.

They’re fundamentally different operating models but both try to offer “seamless” experiences. There’s a lot of crap in both, but we’ve sold cars to Beepi and passed customers to Shift where we thought the experience might be better suited for that particular customer.Both (and us- CARLYPSO Buy or sell your car. Hassle-free..) are trying to change a broken market.Advantages of Beepi –>

Seller – You get a guaranteed sales timeline. In rare circumstances, Beepi pays more than anyone else could to get the car, so its always worth shopping them around. Other times, they’re way off the mark, and we can wholesale these cars for thousands more than Beepi offers.

Buyer – There’s no crap to put up with, the inspection process is probably more rigorous than it should be (I once had a car rejected for Beepi inspection because of the methods Range Rover used to manufacture the car). They mistook a door adjustment (very common in PDI) for a repair, but the upside is it means you’ll get a pretty solid car.

Advantages of Shift –>

Seller –  Immediate gratification. Your car is out of your driveway immediately, and its quite well marketed. The photos are top-quality, the listings are more aggressive (beepi uses predominantly craigslist, adwords, and facebook, Shift uses a wider spectrum of car aggregators).

Buyer –  You can test-drive the car really conveniently, its a really pleasant experience from a buyer-convenience standpoint. Shift prices relative to retail prices seem to be much better (since Shift uses a more powerful valuation engine).

Morgan / Adam / Spanish Lady –  you’ve taken a rather  childish approach on bashing each others services. Grow the F* up, we’re all on the same mission here – customers will decide which is best not Quora.

buying for a fleet ???…..get licensed

If you are a multiple car business like a:
car rental service
delivery service
large contractor
fleet service
etc…

You can obtain auction access and avoid the dealer markup by obtaining your dealer license.

If you are buying more than three vehicles a year you may find it to be a very good move to get your dealer license and benefit from lower car prices,
better cars to choose from and ease of transactions.
And becoming a dealer also allows you better resale prices at disposal
So why not, – buy at wholesale – sell at retail – and use the vehicles in you own business.
We are your first step in obtaining your dealer license.
We will teach you the ins and outs of becoming a dealer and provide you with the certificate you need to present to the CA DMV.

NMVTIS Glossary

Anti-Car Theft Act: Act passed in 1992 to prevent and deter auto theft. Title II of the Act authorizes NMVTIS and is intended to address automobile title fraud. The NMVTIS Final Rule was published in the Federal Register on January 30, 2009.

Auto Recycler: A business that acquires vehicles for recycled use as parts, scrap, or similar purposes.

Brand: Descriptive labels regarding the status of a motor vehicle, such as “junk,” “salvage,” and “flood” vehicles.

Certificate of Title (Title): A document issued by a state showing ownership of an automobile.

Consumer: The individual or entity buying an automobile or financing the purchase of an automobile. Consumers include private individuals, dealers, auction companies or entities engaged in the business of purchasing used automobiles, lenders financing the purchase of new or used automobiles, and automobile dealers.

Insurance Carrier: An individual or entity engaged in the business of underwriting automobile insurance.

Junk Automobile: An automobile that:
(A) Is incapable of operating on public streets, roads, and highways; and
(B) Has no value except as a source of parts or scrap.

(A) Resale in their entirety or as spare parts; or
(B) Rebuilding, restoration, or crushing.

Salvage Automobile: An automobile that is damaged by collision, fire, flood, accident, trespass, or other event, to the extent that its fair salvage value plus the cost of repairing the automobile for legal operation on public streets, roads, and highways would be more than the fair market value of the automobile immediately before the event that caused the damage. Salvage automobiles include automobiles determined to be a total loss under the law of the applicable jurisdiction or designated as a total loss by an insurer under the terms of its policies, regardless of whether or not the ownership of the vehicle is transferred to the insurance carrier.

Total Loss: The cost of repairing such vehicles plus projected supplements plus projected diminished resale value plus rental reimbursement expense exceeds the cost of buying the damaged motor vehicle at its pre-accident value, minus the proceeds of selling the damaged motor vehicle for salvage.

VIN: Vehicle Identification Number; a unique number given to each motor vehicle for identification purposes.

+++

california law both at dmv and the state board of equalization requires a dealer license

if you wish to profit from the sale of a motor vehicle

whether acquired or on consignment

the law applies to each of your business models

+++

the pervasive attitude among disruptive technology is that

we would rather be punished

than ever ask for permission

this attitude is readily apparent in every approach to

dmv compliance we have examined

the sad truth

THERE DOES EXIST A LEGAL MODEL

WHICH ADDRESSES DMV COMPLIANCE IN FULL

+++

bondpotofgold

+++

some of these models hold dealer licenses in remote locations

some of these models hold dealer licenses but show no compliance

some of these models are conducting business with no license whatsoever

+++

here are the glaring compliance violations we see

that will eventually cost them time & money

and/ or limit their ability to conduct

lawful business in california

+++

the federal buyers guide

requires posting on each and every vehicle offered for sale

with a whopping $16k potential fine per vehicle

with @beepi posting 654 cars for sale with no federal buyers guide

the fine alone for this breach could exceed $ 10 million dollars

FTC Buyers Guide Rules

+++

the sales tax due to the state is required to be collected

by the selling dealer along with dmv registration fees

when sold as unlicensed or for the blatant licensed violator

the state can deem illegal activity as a taxable event

which means that sales tax is due from the seller

on each vehicle under their control

sold in an unlawful manner

this tax would be above and beyond any sales tax

paid by the buyer to register the vehicle

if fraud or misrepresentation is apparent

the selling dealer faces tremendous penalties

and possible criminal action

from the state board of equalization

+++

deliberate advertising claims

which violate the truth in advertising provisions

can trigger civil and criminal investigations

from the attorney generals office

as well as well represented dealer organizations

such as NADA, CNCDA and IADAC

civil claims of fraud and misrepresentation

based on unfair competitive advantage

are certainly a possibility

+++

if you wish to contact DMV Investigations

regarding these unlawful disruptive technology models

we suggest you complete a dmv complaint form

and contact your closest dmv licensing inspector

learn how to speak to your government

Hints for Contacting Your State Legislator

Politics Should Be the Part-Time Job of Every Used Car Dealer

To make that letter or phone call more effective, here are some general DO’s and DON’Ts:

DO’s:

  • Be Understanding -Try to understand the problems and pressures a legislator is under.
  • Be Friendly – Stay in touch with the legislator throughout the year and contact them when you need a vote on a crucial issue.
  • Be Reasonable – Recognize that the legislator is receiving different opinions from other constituents.
  • Be Thoughtful – When your legislator votes to support you on an issue, regardless of whether you win or lose, commend and thank him or her for their effort.
  • Be Realistic – The legislative process is one of compromise. It is a give and take process that most frequently results in compromise. Recognize that you may not achieve a full legislative loaf, and be ready to settle for less.

DONT’s:

  • Don’t Hint That a Certain Bill is Not Worthwhile – or that it may corrupt the people who are likely to benefit from its passage.
  • Don’t Demand, Be Rude or Threatening – If your legislator disagrees with you on one issue, he or she may support you on another. That is the way the legislative process works – like it or not.
  • Don’t Be Deceptive – Your legislator or the legislative staff will know soon enough if you have your facts straight or if you are trying to make your plea more attractive by shading the facts in your favor.
  • Don’t Preach To or Pester the Legislator – Marshall your facts and make a clear, succinct, factual presentation. Be actual and factual.
  • Don’t Assume A Rigid Or Uncompromising Position – Your legislator represents all of his or her constituents – not just you or your organization – and does not deserve your condemnation because he/she is unable to support your legislative issue. Remember, the legislative process is one of compromise.

PHONE FACTS:

If you contact your legislator by telephone, here a a few additional rules:

  • If The State Legislature is in Session – call the Capitol office; if you make your call during a recess or on a weekend, call the legislator’s district office.
  • Ask to Speak Directly to the Legislator – and say who you are and that you are his/her constituent. If the legislator is not available, ask to speak to the legislative assistant or aide.
  • Identify Yourself – Again, mention your professional status, and again stress that you are the legislator’s constituent.
  • With those Preliminaries behind you, state the purpose of your call – Cite the bill number, if you can. Explain how the proposed legislation affects you personally or the members of your organization, and why you support or oppose it.
  • Simplify your Conversation – Discuss only one issue in each phone call.

Don’t Be Shy About Asking What the Legislator’s Position Is – In many instances, your legislator will thank you for your views and say the matter will be taken under advisement. However, if he/she expresses a position that is the same as yours, express your appreciation. If different, express your disappointment.

Finally, don’t consider that contacting your legislator is a frightening experience. Remember, he/she wants to hear from you. Your vote and your support are important to him/her to stay in office.
