california attorney general to review proposed new car dealer loan markup restrictions

By Brittany-Marie Swanson

Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, speaks at the CFPB’s first public forum on auto lending in November.
Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, speaks at the CFPB's first public forum on auto lending in November.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS), a consumer advocacy group, submitted a new ballot initiative to the California attorney general’s office on Oct. 30. Part of the initiative calls for the elimination of dealer markup, a practice currently being scrutinized by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, discussed the ballot measure during the CFPB’s first public forum on auto lending, held on Nov. 15 at its Washington, D.C., headquarters. The Car Buyers Protection Act is slated to appear on the November 2014 ballot.

“I would note that the provision [aimed at eliminating dealer markup] in the initiative that we just filed … polled at 82 percent support,” Shahan said during the CFPB forum, for which she served as a panelist. “And there isn’t a lot these days that polls so resoundingly well.”

Most industry and regulatory representatives present at the forum, including CFPB Director Richard Cordray, agreed that dealers deserve to be compensated for arranging financing for consumers. The CFPB is concerned that the discretion dealers are allowed when marking up rates creates a fair lending risk. Shahan, however, disagreed.

“I don’t think they should be compensated for that,” Shahan told F&I and Showroom. “It’s something you can do yourself better for free. Why would you pay someone to put you into a bad loan?”

California New Car Dealer Association (CNCDA) President Brian Maas told the magazine that Shahan’s approach is “pretty hard to respond to.”

“The short summary is, [the initiative] is a solution in search of a problem,” he said. “It would have a potentially devastating impact on the new-car business, just to fix things that frankly are going to be resolved one way or another anyway, or don’t need to be resolved at all, or are confusing. So we’re perplexed, frankly. Why this ballot measure at this time?

“Obviously, the CFPB is looking at the issue closely and trying to decide if disparate impact or discrimination exists [in auto lending], and what’s the appropriate compensation scheme and what have you,” Maas added. “But even the CFPB has conceded that dealers should be paid for performing the service.”

In addition to eliminating dealer markup, the proposed Car Buyers Protection Act would make it illegal for dealers to sell, rent, lease or loan recalled used cars, as well as improve protections against “bait and switch” financing and for victims of identity theft perpetrated at car dealerships. The proposed ballot measure would also require that dealers offer a minimum 30-day, 1,000-mile warranty on all used cars.

The initiative also seeks to eliminate the authority of the New Motor Vehicle Board to overrule disciplinary actions against dealers and manufacturers approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

“There are a number of problems that have been identified over the years where the public really wants to see change, but the dealers keep blocking it in the legislature either federally, or at the state level,” Shahan said. “And so [this initiative] is aimed at getting these policies enacted through popular vote.”

The advocacy group recently sponsored SB 686, a bill intended to prohibit the sale of unsafe used cars. It was blocked in California’s Assembly Business and Professions Committee in July and cannot be revived until January 2014.

At the CFPB forum, Shahan called California “ground zero” for the issue the CFPB is currently tackling: discrimination in auto lending. California is one of two states that caps dealer markups —2.5 percent for loans up to 60 months and 2 percent for longer loans.

Shahan’s organization’s next step is to meet with the California attorney general’s office, and she said she’s prepared for a long fight. “I expect it to be a battle,” she said. “I imagine the dealers are going to oppose it tooth and nail. But I think at the end of the day, we’ll win. Because … the practices really do not stand up to scrutiny.”

Maas, however, pointed out that the ballot measure may harm the people it intends to protect.

“If dealers don’t provide financing, how does a subprime customer get financed? You can’t walk into a subprime lending intuition; they don’t exist … If I’m a credit challenged customer, it’s the dealer that is working hard to get me financed,” he said. “He’s got an incentive, he wants to sell a car … and that’s why the dealer financing model works.

“We’re a bit frustrated,” Maas added. “It’s not clear at this point how much support [Shahan] has for the measure, other than the fact that she spent $200 to file it with the attorney general.”

odometer fraud is rampant on craigslist…always #runtheVIN

DMV Investigators Bust Unlicensed Car Dealer Ring

June 27, 2013

Over 200 Vehicles Were Sold With False Odometer Mileage

Fresno – Three men with the same last name are now staying under the same roof, the Fresno County jail, after allegedly operating an unlicensed car dealer ring.

On June 18, 2013, Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) investigators, along with Fresno police, arrested Rami Alrawashdeh, 20, and Murad Alrawashdeh 24.  They later arrested Atef Alrawashdeh, 30.  All of the men face felony charges including grand theft, altering vehicle certificates of title, vehicle odometer tampering and acting as unlicensed car dealers.

“Some of these vehicles are traded in at dealerships and resold to the unsuspecting public,” said Kenny Ehrman, DMV investigator and president of the Association of Motor Vehicles Investigators of California (AMVIC).  “This crime of unlicensed dealers is a huge problem in California and DMV Investigations is the only law enforcement agency that has the expertise and training to combat this crime.”

The arrests are the result of a 10-month investigation that began when a victim/car buyer attempted to register a vehicle that had considerably less mileage than what was on file at the DMV.  The vehicle was originally advertised on Craigslist and DMV investigators soon discovered the seller(s) had posted more than 180 vehicles for sale in a 15-month period. The cars for sale were 2003-2007 Toyota Corollas and Honda Civics.

“DMV investigators are champions at protecting consumers, often struggling families, who save hard-earned money for a vehicle,” said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA).  CSLEA represents DMV investigators along with 7000 other law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the state of California.  “These investigators work daily to protect consumers from fraudulent dealers and transactions.”

A search warrant was served in Fresno on June 13, 2013, which resulted in the seizure of odometer clusters, cash, computers and ledgers that detailed each vehicle sold. Based on the seized ledger information, it is estimated, the ring profited approximately $296,000 over a two-and-half year period with the sale of more than 212 vehicles with altered odometers.

nmvtis answers from vinaudit.com

Where can I find the VIN for my vehicle?
You can find your VIN on the vehicle title, the vehicle registration, and the insurance policy. If these papers would not be available, the VIN can also be found inside the vehicle itself. It can be seen on the dashboard on the driver’s side and on the driver’s side door.

When will I receive my vehicle history report?
The vehicle history report is generated and delivered instantly after purchase.

How does my vehicle history report get delivered?
Your vehicle history report gets delivered over the Internet. You’ll be able to print it and save it as a PDF file for your records.

What type of information does a VinAudit provide?
VinAudit provides complete information on its vehicle history report. These include: vehicle specification, title data current and previous state, title issue data, most recent odometer reading (odometer history reading), brand assigned to the vehicle and date it was applied, salvage history, information from companies and auto recyclers and information from junk and salvage yards.

Where does VinAudit’s data come from?
VinAudit’s data comes from the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System. States, insurance carriers, and junk yards are required by law to report vehicle records to the NMVTIS. The NMVTIS has certified VinAudit.com to provide instant access to this data over the Internet.

What kind of vehicles does VinAudit support?
We support automobiles, buses, trucks, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, motor homes and tractors. The vehicle needs to be built after 1981.

Why can’t I have a report from vehicles built before 1981?
From 1954 to 1981, the standards for VIN is not yet accepted. As a result, different manufacturers used different formats. In 1981 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standardized the format. The standardized VIN allows us to maintain and query vehicle data for vehicles since 1981.

How can I store or share my vehicle history report?
You can share VinAudit’s vehicle history report by downloading it as a PDF file. You can also print a copy of this PDF for your records.

You have a representative who operates under your authority to sell or take orders in California for any goods
or merchandise. (See California Revenue and Taxation Code section 6203(c)(2).)

use an independent representative who sells your product along with many others. The representative works
on a commission-only basis.

Persons who are “engaged in business” in California (as defined by Revenue and Taxation Code section 6203) are responsible for collecting and remitting the sales or use taxes on all sales of tangible personal property (unless the transaction is otherwise exempt). Circumstances where a retailer is considered to be engaged in business in California, commonly referred to as “nexus,” for sales and use tax purposes include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Maintaining, occupying or using any type of office, sales room, warehouse or other place of business in California. This includes use that is temporary, indirect or through an agent or other representative.
  • Having any kind of representative operating in the state for the purpose of taking orders, making sales or deliveries, installing, or assembling tangible personal property.
  • Making repairs or providing maintenance or service to property sold, whether by employees, agents or other representatives.
  • Deriving rentals from a lease of tangible personal property located in California.

Dealers and wholesalers
The BOE requires motor vehicle dealers and wholesalers to register for a seller’s permit. When you sell or lease
vehicles, merchandise, or other tangible personal property in California, even temporarily, you are required to hold
a seller’s permit. If you hold a seller’s permit you must report and pay sales and use tax due on your returns.
Brokers
A broker is a retailer if you have the power to transfer title to property, and exercises it, either:
• By holding title to the property before its sale,
• By completing a bill of sale to the buyer under power of attorney from the legal owner, or
• By getting a signed bill of sale from the legal owner and delivering it to the buyer.
When entering any transactions in which you have the power to transfer title to a vehicle, you are a retailer in those
transactions, and must hold a seller’s permit.
A true broker’s authority, however, is limited to getting offers from potential buyers and conveying the offers to
vehicle owners for their acceptance. As a true broker, you are not liable for the tax, and not required to hold a seller’s
permit. In transactions in which buyers deal with a true broker, the buyer will be liable for use tax.
Note: As a broker, you may collect the use tax due on a purchase of a vehicle, as a convenience to your customer.
If you collect the use tax from a buyer and provide a receipt, you (the broker), not the buyer, are liable for the use
tax amount paid and must pay that amount to the BOE. If the BOE later discovers that additional use tax is due, the
buyer is liable for the additional tax. This procedure allows financing the tax in the purchase price of the vehicle and
helps avoid future misunderstandings about the buyer’s use tax liability.
Buyers; be sure to keep a receipt for any use tax paid to a broker.
If a broker provides this service, they must forward the use tax to the BOE with a statement that shows:
• Name and address of buyer
• Full purchase price of vehicle
• The vehicle identification number (VIN)
You can report your purchases subject to use tax by using eRegistration available on our website at www.
boe.ca.gov. eReg is also available in our field offices. Please contact our Taxpayer Information Section for assistance
at 800-400-7115.

attorney general to review car dealer markup bill proposed for 2014

December 3, 2013

By Brittany-Marie Swanson

Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, speaks at the CFPB’s first public forum on auto lending in November.
Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, speaks at the CFPB's first public forum on auto lending in November.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS), a consumer advocacy group, submitted a new ballot initiative to the California attorney general’s office on Oct. 30. Part of the initiative calls for the elimination of dealer markup, a practice currently being scrutinized by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, discussed the ballot measure during the CFPB’s first public forum on auto lending, held on Nov. 15 at its Washington, D.C., headquarters. The Car Buyers Protection Act is slated to appear on the November 2014 ballot.

“I would note that the provision [aimed at eliminating dealer markup] in the initiative that we just filed … polled at 82 percent support,” Shahan said during the CFPB forum, for which she served as a panelist. “And there isn’t a lot these days that polls so resoundingly well.”

Most industry and regulatory representatives present at the forum, including CFPB Director Richard Cordray, agreed that dealers deserve to be compensated for arranging financing for consumers. The CFPB is concerned that the discretion dealers are allowed when marking up rates creates a fair lending risk. Shahan, however, disagreed.

“I don’t think they should be compensated for that,” Shahan told F&I and Showroom. “It’s something you can do yourself better for free. Why would you pay someone to put you into a bad loan?”

California New Car Dealer Association (CNCDA) President Brian Maas told the magazine that Shahan’s approach is “pretty hard to respond to.”

“The short summary is, [the initiative] is a solution in search of a problem,” he said. “It would have a potentially devastating impact on the new-car business, just to fix things that frankly are going to be resolved one way or another anyway, or don’t need to be resolved at all, or are confusing. So we’re perplexed, frankly. Why this ballot measure at this time?

“Obviously, the CFPB is looking at the issue closely and trying to decide if disparate impact or discrimination exists [in auto lending], and what’s the appropriate compensation scheme and what have you,” Maas added. “But even the CFPB has conceded that dealers should be paid for performing the service.”

In addition to eliminating dealer markup, the proposed Car Buyers Protection Act would make it illegal for dealers to sell, rent, lease or loan recalled used cars, as well as improve protections against “bait and switch” financing and for victims of identity theft perpetrated at car dealerships. The proposed ballot measure would also require that dealers offer a minimum 30-day, 1,000-mile warranty on all used cars.

The initiative also seeks to eliminate the authority of the New Motor Vehicle Board to overrule disciplinary actions against dealers and manufacturers approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

“There are a number of problems that have been identified over the years where the public really wants to see change, but the dealers keep blocking it in the legislature either federally, or at the state level,” Shahan said. “And so [this initiative] is aimed at getting these policies enacted through popular vote.”

The advocacy group recently sponsored SB 686, a bill intended to prohibit the sale of unsafe used cars. It was blocked in California’s Assembly Business and Professions Committee in July and cannot be revived until January 2014.

At the CFPB forum, Shahan called California “ground zero” for the issue the CFPB is currently tackling: discrimination in auto lending. California is one of two states that caps dealer markups —2.5 percent for loans up to 60 months and 2 percent for longer loans.

Shahan’s organization’s next step is to meet with the California attorney general’s office, and she said she’s prepared for a long fight. “I expect it to be a battle,” she said. “I imagine the dealers are going to oppose it tooth and nail. But I think at the end of the day, we’ll win. Because … the practices really do not stand up to scrutiny.”

Maas, however, pointed out that the ballot measure may harm the people it intends to protect.

“If dealers don’t provide financing, how does a subprime customer get financed? You can’t walk into a subprime lending intuition; they don’t exist … If I’m a credit challenged customer, it’s the dealer that is working hard to get me financed,” he said. “He’s got an incentive, he wants to sell a car … and that’s why the dealer financing model works.

“We’re a bit frustrated,” Maas added. “It’s not clear at this point how much support [Shahan] has for the measure, other than the fact that she spent $200 to file it with the attorney general.”

has tesla motors bothered to read the dmv car dealer handbook ???

By Alan Ohnsman 

Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA)’s promotion of a lease-style finance program for Model S electric sedans spurred the California New Car Dealers Association to seek a state investigation of what it says are deceptive advertising claims.

Tesla told customers they “can take advantage of multiple incentives, gas savings, and tax savings resulting in low monthly vehicle payments, when it is unlikely that customers will actually realize such savings,” the dealer group said in an e-mail. The association made its request for an investigation of “unsubstantiated and illegal savings claims” with the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) — Elon Musk, chief executive officer of Tesla Motors Inc. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., speaks about his career and businesses. He speaks at the Montana Economic Development Summit in Butte, Montana. (Source: Bloomberg)

The electric-car maker led by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk debuted the finance program in April and revised it in May after the company was criticized for its explanation of monthly payments. When first introduced, Tesla said customers could finance one of its cars for the equivalent of $500 per month, based on factors including fuel and time savings.

While the company’s website shows a monthly cash payment of $916 for a $71,070 version of Model S, financed for 72 months, it also displays an “effective” monthly payment of just$579 that includes fuel and time savings and the impact of a guaranteed resale price after three years.

Shanna Hendriks, a Tesla spokeswoman, declined to comment on the matter.

Tesla, based in Palo Alto, California, sells its electric cars directly through its own stores while vehicles produced by major automakers are sold through franchised dealers. That’s spurred opposition from dealers across the country.

Dealers have filed lawsuits in New York and Massachusetts to block direct sales, and the company also has been barred from selling directly to customers within Texas and North Carolina.

Tesla gained 0.6 percent to $166.58 at the close in New York. The shares have surged almost fivefold this year, compared with a 20 percent increase for the Russell 1000 Index.

2-Part Buyers Guides

(100 per pack)

$21.99

All auto dealers throughout the United States are required to display this two page (one page duplicated) form in the side window of every used vehicle offered for sale. The Federal Trade Commission oversees this regulation to disclose whether or not a dealer is offering any kind of warranty. The form must be prominently displayed on a vehicle’s window while the vehicle sits in the dealer’s inventory. The form may be removed from a window for a “test drive”, but must be returned to the window immediately upon return from the test drive if a sale is not consumated. If the vehicle is sold, the form is signed and part of the paperwork processed at delivery of the vehicle. The one and only purpose of this form is to disclose what warranties, if any, are included with the purchase if this vehicle. A “used vehicle” is defined by the Federal Trade Commission as any vehicle previously registered, and any vehicle previously used. This includes new vehicle rollbacks as well as unlicensed demonstrators (demos). There is an exemption for vehicles weighing in excess of 6,000 lbs. unladen weight, which means motorhomes and heavier duty trucks are exempt from the “Buyers Guide” regulations. Required by law for consumer protection on used vehicles, this form meets federal regulations. Pressure sensitive tape at the top and bottom holds this 2-part carbonless, 8 1/2″ wide x 11″ tall form to the window. Available in two styles: “As-Is” or “Implied Warranty”. Note, some states prohibit “As-Is” sales. Sold in packs of 100. Quantity Discount Prices available on quantities of 5 and 10 or more packs.

red flag rules ITPP

+++

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 $ 300.

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.

Certified: means the car has been cleaned and checked out by the dealer. Remember: only factory certified cars have the backing of the manufacturer.

Credit Report: a detailed explanation of your borrowing and bill-paying history, not to be confused with your… (See Credit Score.)

Credit Score: a three-digit number that expresses your creditworthiness. This number gives lenders a good idea of how likely you are to pay your bills.

“Cup Holder Factor”: Is your chosen car a good physical fit for you? Does the seatbelt hit your shoulder, or are you chewing on it? Do the seats and steering wheel adjust for your height and weight? Is there enough headroom? Legroom? Are there any blind spots? Are the controls and accessories logically placed and easy to locate? And, the inevitable, will the cup holder accommodate your double decaf grande latte? All this factors in to a good deal.

Curb Appeal: means cleaning up your car to make it look ten times better than it ever did while you were driving it—to entice potential buyers.

Dealer: Someone who is licensed to sell you a car, and abides by all the appropriate auto industry rules and regulations, or so you hope.

Dealer Cost: is the dealer invoice minus a whole bunch of stuff like incentives, environmental packages, advertising fees, and more. This is what the dealer actually paid for the car.

Dealer Invoice (Invoice): The price the dealer wants you to believe he paid for the car, when chances are, he really paid much less. (See Dealer Cost.)

Depreciation: The reduced value of the car after you buy it, or that portion of the car you “use” over the course of a lease.

The “Desk”: the sales manager

Extended warranty: This is also referred to as a service contract. It is an option you may purchase on a new, and some used cars. The extended warranty should cover car repairs over a longer period than the manufacturer’s warranty, which comes with the car. But beware: it’s a high-profit item for a dealer—cheaper ones are available online.

Four-Square Easy Sheets: easy sheets designed to combine all elements of the deal- the purchase price, trade-in, monthly payments and down payment. Don’t do it! Keep all items separate!

Holdback: An amount the manufacturer pays the dealer for each car sold of a particular make. Also referred to as a “kickback.”

Idiot- What you are if you don’t use AutoIdiot’s “Don’t Be an Idiot!” car-buying system before you buy, sell, or lease a car!

“In the Box”: In the salesperson’s cubicle.

Incentives: Money or other special deals that entice you to buy a vehicle.

Invoice (Dealer’s Invoice): The price the dealer wants you to believe he paid for the car, when chances are, he really paid much less. (See Dealer Cost.)

Lay-down: a customer who takes any deal the salesperson offers.

Leasing: is when you pay a low monthly fee to drive a fully warrantied, brand new car every two years or so, but you don’t actually own the car.

Mileage Allowance- the amount of miles per year you’re allowed to drive on a lease. Better not go over: the fees can be quite painful.

Money Factor: used for leases, this is kind of the same thing as an interest rate on a loan, only much more complicated.

MSRP: Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price

Options: These are extras you can have added to a standard vehicle, and usually come in packages.

Rebate: money you get back after you buy the car.

Recall: If a car model has a defect, a manufacturer may issue a “recall” notice, meaning that the defect will be fixed at the manufacturer’s expense.

Repossession: If you don’t make your car loan payments, you may get a visit from the Repo-man: the finance company that gave you the loan has every right to come and take your T-Bird away.

Residual Value: The amount a leased car is predicted to be worth after your lease is up

Rollover: this is when the dealer takes the loan from your old car and magically rolls it over into the loan for your new car. Don’t do it! You’ll be paying off two cars on the same bill!

Rustproofing: Meant to hold off body erosion, rustproofing is an unnecessary extra that a lot of car dealers push.

Salvaged or Rebuilt Title: when a car has been previously totaled, the title is marked “salvaged”. Often, these cars are dolled up and their titles are “rebuilt”, or laundered back to normal. You do not want one of these cars!

Service contract: Also called an “extended warranty,” it supplements the manufacturer’s warranty, which comes with a vehicle you purchase. A service contract is a high-profit item for the dealer. Make sure it offers substantially more than the standard warranty.

Subvent: This is when the manufacturers need to unload a certain kind of car so they inflate or “subvent” the residual value to entice you to sign up for a lease.

Target Price: the fair and reasonable price for a vehicle.

Test Drive: That’s when you take the car out for a spin- and check everything from the engine to the tires to the “Cup Holder Factor” to make sure it’s the car for you.

Title Search or Title History: gives you the lowdown on a car’s potentially sordid past. Shows a vehicle’s ownership history by using its VIN. Always do a title search if you’re buying a used car.

Upside Down: means you owe more on your car than it’s actually worth.

VIN: Vehicle Identification Number, every car’s got one.

The 5 W’s: system for advertising your car: Window (of the car), Word-of-mouth, Work (or anywhere potential buyers congregate), Wall Street Journal (really just refers to any newspaper advertisement), World Wide Web.

The Walkaround: this is when you—that’s right– walk around the car and check it out.

Warranty: is a guarantee that certain mechanical problems and body parts will be fixed if they aren’t in proper working condition. The warranty is usually limited, so make sure you know what’s included- and especially what’s not. Check online for cheaper warranties—this is a big money-maker for a dealership.

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.
