BHPH car dealers must now post the book value on each vehicle offered for sale

BHPH Dealer Requirements

The new legislation requires BHPH dealers, on every vehicle sold or leased, to:

Restrict the use of global positioning satellite (GPS) and starter interrupt devices,
unless the buyer has been advised. As with all consumer advisory requirements, the
department recommends the advisory statement be in writing and the buyer’s
signature is obtained on such written document.

Affix and prominently display a label on any used vehicle offered for retail sale that
states the reasonable market value of the vehicle. The label must meet all of the
following conditions:

—Printed with a heading in at least 16-point bold type that reads

“REASONABLE MARKET VALUE OF THIS VEHICLE”

with text at least 12-point type.

—Located adjacent to the Used Car Buyer’s Guide located prominently and
conspicuously on the vehicle so that it is readily readable.

—Identify all equipment included with the vehicle.

—Contain the information used to determine the reasonable market value of the
vehicle, including, but not limited to, the use of a nationally recognized pricing
guide for used vehicles.

—Contain the date the reasonable market value was determined.

—Indicate that the reasonable market value is being provided only for comparison
shopping and is not the retail sales price or the advertised price of the vehicle.

every car dealer must present a pot of gold to the dmv

we call the dealer surety bond

a pretty pot of gold that

you must create and present to the dmv

it is a promise to three agencies of state government

the bond has a 12 month coverage period

with a three year claims period

for example:

2015 sales are covered thru 2018

by posting a bond you promise to:

always pay the dmv for fees and penalties

always pay the board of equalization its sales tax

honor all judicial orders for repayment

if you break your promise

the agency exercises your bond

the bond company makes payment to the agency

and you must make immediate repayment to the bond company

old school dealers have posted cash or savings

with a 3 year hold after you close the business

new school rents the money from the bond company

with the bond preminum based on the collective credit of the owners

wholesale only dealers with 24 sales per year or less can post a $ 10k bond

with preminums starting @ $ 300 per year

wholesale dealers above 24 sales per year or retail dealers

must post a $ 50k bond

with preminums starting at $ 850 per year

multiple year purchases are available with some discount

preminums for those with poor credit can exceed $ 5k per year with a $ 5k deposit

we suggest you contact sony at unipoint insurance services

License Plate Fraud: Ex-City Employee Admits To Forgery

May 01, 2013

When Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) investigators were tipped off something was not right with the fee-exempt government license plates on a car being driven erratically in Riverside County, they went to work and uncovered 17 vehicles registered to a fictitious fire district.  The common denominator?  Canyon Lake ex-city employee Patrick Joseph Colleary.

Colleary was arrested back in November and, on Monday, April 29, pleaded guilty to forgery in an agreement with prosecutors.  Colleary is accused of registering vehicles to the Menifee Wildomar Fire District, a district that does not exist.  Using falsified paperwork,  he was then issued fee-exempt government plates which would have allowed him to avoid paying taxes and fees.

Menifee and Wildomar are cities in Riverside County with fire services provided by Riverside County .  Colleary is a former firefighter and had, at one time, created a proposal to form a city fire department.

“If citizens see something that isn’t right, by all means they should notify law enforcement,” said Kenny Ehrman, president of the Association of Motor Vehicle Investigators of California (AMVIC), an affiliate of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association.   “DMV investigators are experts in cases involving fraud and are often called on to help other law enforcement agencies.”

Colleary was sentenced 105 days in jail/work release program and three years probation.  He was also ordered to pay fines and restitution.

+++++

Be-back: A customer who leaves the car lot promising to return later, saying, “I’ll be back,” or some variation of that statement. “The guy was a be-back. But I think he meant it. I’ll see him again.”

Bumping: Raising the customer’s offer for a car. “If Mr. Customer says he only wants to pay $250 a month, just say, ‘Up to — ?’ He’ll probably bump himself up to $300 without you doing anything.”

“Buyers are liars”: Car salesmen know they have a reputation for dishonesty. But they counter with this claim of their own.

Salesman #1:After the test-drive, this guy tells me he has to leave ’cause he’s got a doctor’s appointment. Yeah, right.”

Salesman #2:“What can I tell you, man? Buyers are liars.”

Closer: An experienced salesman who is brought in to “close” the customer by making them agree to a deal. “If I worked with a better closer, I’d have more units on the board.”

Demo: This is the test-drive. “This guy comes in, demos the car, and I think he’s ready to buy, right? Then he tells me the car’s for his wife and he can’t make a decision without her. Same old line.”

F&I: This stands for the Finance and Insurance office where the documents are signed. The F&I salesperson usually will push products such as extended warranties, fabric protection and alarms. “The wait for F&I is two hours. Better stick with your customer so they don’t skip out the back door.”

“The feel of the wheel will seal the deal”: It is assumed that if you test-drive a car, you will buy it. “This prospect was on the fence, right? I get him in the car, he drives the thing, now he’s hot to buy. It’s like they always say, ‘The feel of the wheel will seal the deal.'”

First pencil: This is the opening offer from the sales manager, usually written onto the four-square worksheet, so-called because it is highly negotiable, i.e. written in pencil, not ink. “I show my customer the first pencil and it’s so high he nearly dies. I scrape him off the ceiling and make a deal.”

Four-square: As negotiations begin, the salesman pulls out a worksheet divided into four squares which represent the four elements of a car deal: selling price, trade-in value, monthly payment and down payment. “I started working the four-square and looked up at the prospect. It was great — they had no idea what the hell I was talking about.”

Full pop lease: This is when a vehicle is leased at 110 percent of the sticker price — the highest amount allowed by most banks. “I got them into a full pop lease. I’ll get a nice voucher for that.”

GM: The general manager. The GM is the head honcho at the dealership. He runs the business from day to day. “The guys were standing out on the curb drinking coffee so the GM called them into the tower and read them the riot act.”

Green pea: A new car salesperson. “The funny thing is, green peas can outsell the veterans. That’s because they don’t know how hard this job is.”

Grinder: A customer who negotiates for hours over a small amount of money. “We were only $100 apart, but the guy wouldn’t sign. Man, what a grinder.”

Home run: This applies when a salesman has taken advantage of every element of the deal: trade-in, sale price and financing. “I stole their trade and buried them in a full pop lease with 9.9 percent financing. Home runs like that don’t come along everyday.”

Lay down (Also “Lie down” depending on usage): A customer who takes whatever deal the salesperson offers. “I quoted him monthly payments of $575 and he took it! I wish all the customers were lay downs like that.”

Mini: The commission on a deal where the car was sold at close to invoice price. “Sure, the deal was only a mini. But I qualified for a weekend bonus and made a grand.”

Mooch: A customer who wants to buy a car at invoice. “People are spending too much time on the Internet reading invoice prices. It’s turning them into a bunch of mooches.”

Packing payments: Adding extra profit to the cost of a car. “This place I used to work got busted for packing payments. Bummer. But it was great while it lasted.”

The Point: The place on the car lot where the “up” man stands looking for customers. “The GM saw me standing on the point with my hands in my pockets. He went ballistic and sent me home for the day.”

Pounder: A deal with a $1,000 profit in it. “Doctor comes in and buys the top-of-the-line model, fully loaded — and he pays sticker! That’ll be a two-pounder for me.”

“Rip their heads off”: This describes taking a customer to the cleaners. “I sold them this fully loaded, top-of-the-line model at a grand over sticker — I mean, I just ripped their heads off.”

Roach: A customer with bad credit. Not to be confused with the “roach coach” (see entry below).“The guy looked good. But we ran his credit, and he turned out to be a roach. We’re talkin’ a 400 credit score, repos and bankruptcies out the wazoo.”

Roach coach: The food truck that comes around to the dealership everyday. “I shouldn’ta eaten that chili from the roach coach. My stomach’s killin’ me.”

Spiff: A tip, kickback or payment of any kind, usually cash which is handed between salespeople.“I spiffed the F&I guy $20 bucks, and he took my customers first.”

Strong: This has a special meaning on the car lot. It means holding firm on your price and being a tough negotiator. “When they ask for your price, you have to be strong. Hit ‘em with high payments, then scrape them off the ceiling and start negotiating.”(See also “weak.”)

Tower: The office where the sales managers work. This is usually a raised platform allowing the managers to see over the roofs of the cars so they can watch customers and their salespeople.“Attention: All new car salesmen report to the new car tower!”

Turn over: Also known as “turning,” this is the practice of passing a customer from one salesman to another. It is thought that this will prevent customers from leaving the car lot. The theory is that the customer might just have bad chemistry with the first salesman and he might like the next salesman. “I turned this guy to my partner and he wound up buying. I’ll get half of the commission on the deal.”

Up: A customer who walks onto the car lot. The term probably comes from the order in which customers are taken, as in: “Who’s up next?” “There are customers all over the lot — looks like the ups bus just arrived.”

Voucher: Car salespeople receive a voucher to let them know what their commission was for selling a car. They don’t know until the deal is finalized exactly how much they will receive. “Check out this voucher. I thought I had a pounder. Instead it’s a mini.”

Weak: This describes being a weak negotiator or coming down too quickly on price. “The guy was weak so he only lasted a few months. How are you going to make money in this business if you give away cars?”

what is the red flag rule ???

Red Flags Rule

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Red Flags Rule was created by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), along with other government agencies such as the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), to help prevent identity theft. The rule was passed in January 2008, and was to be in place by November 1, 2008. But due to push-backs by opposition, the FTC delayed enforcement until December 31, 2010.[1]

In December 2010, the Red Flags Rule was clarified by the Red Flag Program Clarification Act of 2010 [2] to exclude most doctors, lawyers, and other professionals who do not receive full payment at the time when their service is furnished.

 

 

History

The Red Flags Rule was based on section 114 and 315 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003.[3] FACTA was put in place to help Identity Theft Prevention and Credit History Restoration, Improvements in Use of and Consumer Access to Credit Information, Enhancing the Accuracy of Consumer Report Information, Limiting the Use and Sharing of Medical Information in the Financial System, Financial Literacy and Education Improvement, Protecting Employee Misconduct Investigations, and Relation to State Laws.[4]

Coverage

There are two different groups that this rule applies to: Financial Institutions and Creditors.[5] Financial institution is defined as a state or national bank, a state or federal savings and loan association, a mutual savings bank, a state or federal credit union, or any other entity that holds a “transaction account” belonging to a consumer.[6] FACTA’s definition of “creditor” applies to any entity that regularly extends or renews credit – or arranges for others to do so – and includes all entities that regularly permit deferred payments for goods or services [7]

The definition of a creditor was clarified by the Red Flag Program Clarification Act of 2010.[2] Under the Clarification Act, a creditor regularly and in the course of business:

  • Obtains or uses consumer credit reports;
  • Provides information to consumer reporting agencies; or
  • Advances funds which must be repaid in the future (or against collateral).

This definition was further clarified United States Court of Appeals For the District of Columbia Circuit in its March 4, 2010 ruling on The American Bar Association vs. Federal Trade Commission.[8] The court affirmed Senator Dodd’s statement regarding the bill that “lawyers, doctors, … and other service providers [are] no longer classified as ‘creditors’ for the purpose of the red flags rule just because they do not receive payment in full from their clients at the time they provide their services.”

There are many different companies that this rule applies to: this list includes, but is not limited to finance companies, automobile dealers, mortgage brokers, utility companies, and telecommunications companies; or any other company that advances funds or routinely interacts with consumer credit agencies when performing a service and receiving payment once the work is complete.

Elements

The Red Flags Rule sets out how certain businesses and organizations must develop, implement, and administer their Identity Theft Prevention Programs. The program must include four basic elements, which together create a framework to address the threat of identity theft.[9][10]

The program has four elements:

1) Identify Relevant Red Flags

  • Identify likely business-specific identity theft red flags

2) Detect Red Flags

  • Define procedures to detect red flags in day-to-day operations

3) Prevent and Mitigate Identity Theft

  • Act to prevent and mitigate harm when red flags are identified

4) Update Program

  • Maintain the red flag program, including educating operational staff

The Red Flags Rules provide all financial institutions and creditors the opportunity to design and implement a program that is appropriate to their size and complexity, as well as the nature of their operations.[6]

The red flags fall into five categories:

  • alerts, notifications, or warnings from a consumer reporting agency[6]
  • suspicious documents[6]
  • suspicious identifying information, such as a suspicious address[6]
  • unusual use of – or suspicious activity relating to – a covered account[6]
  • notices from customers, victims of identity theft, law enforcement authorities, or other businesses about possible identity theft in connection with covered accounts[6]

Compliance

The FTC has a created a template for businesses that can be populated to meet an individual company’s needs. The template can be found on the FTC website. This template however is appropriate only for small, very low risk businesses.

Red Flag Rule and identity theft

As the Red Flag rule widely defines creditors, many businesses (such as utilities)[11] are required to collect personal information (such as SSN and Driver’s License Numbers) that they do not need and have no use for. This policy is precisely contrary to the FTC’s advice to consumers that they should disclose their social security number to others only when absolutely necessary.[12] This aspect of the Red Flag rule has the unintended consequences of increasing the number of business that hold consumers’ Social Security numbers thereby putting consumers at greater risk for identity theft through data theft.

AB 1447 (Feuer)
Automobile sales finance: sellers.

The Rees-Levering Motor Vehicle Sales and Finance Act regulates conditional sales contracts for motor vehicles, and, among other things, requires a person selling or leasing a motor vehicle under a conditional sale contract to disclose certain information to the buyer of the vehicle.

A willful violation of those provisions is a misdemeanor and may render the contract unenforceable. A seller who violates the provisions of the act may also be liable to the buyer for monetary damages.

This bill requires a buy-here-pay-here dealer, as defined, to issue a 30-day or 1,000-mile warranty to the buyer or lessee of a used vehicle bought or leased at retail price, and would require the warranty to cover the engine, transmission, drive axle, front and rear wheel drive components, engine cooling system, brakes, front and rear suspension systems, steering, seatbelts, inflatable restraint systems, catalytic converter or other emissions components, heater, seals and gaskets, electrical, electronic, and computer components, alternator, generator, starter, and ignition system.

The bill requires the buy-here-pay-here dealer to either repair those covered parts that fail or, at the buy-here-pay-here dealers election, to cancel the sale or lease and reimburse the buyer or lessee, as specified.

The bill requires the buy-here-pay-here dealer to pay 100% of the cost of labor and parts for any repairs under the warranty.

The bill voids any sales agreement for the purchase or lease of a vehicle that waives, limits, or disclaims these requirements.

The bill provides that a warranty is deemed to have been issued if a buy-here-pay-here dealer fails to issue a warranty pursuant to these provisions.

The bill prohibits a buy-here-pay-here dealer from requiring the buyer to make payments in person, with the exception of the downpayment for the vehicle,

The bill prohibits the buy-here-pay-here dealer from repossessing the vehicle or charging a penalty following timely payment of a deferred downpayment.

The bill prohibits the buy-here-pay-here dealer from, after the sale of the vehicle, tracking the vehicle using electronic tracking technology and from disabling the vehicle with starter interrupt technology, except as specified, and would make a violation of these prohibitions a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000.

The bill also makes findings and declarations related to buy-here-pay-here dealers, and would authorize the Department of Motor Vehicles to promulgate any necessary regulations.

The federal buyers guide must be posted to reflect a 30 day 1000 mile warranty if buy here pay here financing is offered within the dealership.

car dealers…..beware of the kleenex

KIRKLAND, WA,  — For decades, one company has dominated the vehicle history market: CARFAX. With few alternatives available for vehicle history reports, CARFAX gets away with charging as much as $34.99 for a single vehicle history report.

“I just needed to prove that a car I was selling had a clean history, so I scoured the web for a ‘free vehicle history report'”, explains David Wu, “Unfortunately, there was no such thing as free vehicle history, and I felt ripped off when I resorted to paying $30 for a basic report.” After this experience, Wu went on to found VinAudit.com– a vehicle history reporting service offering a radically lower-cost alternative to CARFAX.

Since VinAudit.com’s initial release in early 2012, the service has served thousands of consumers over the Internet in addition to having with a rapidly growing presence in the automotive industry. VinAudit.com and partners of VinAudit.com served as one of the main alternatives to CARFAX providing an approved compliance solution with this new requirement that took effect on July 1st, 2012.

Assembly Bill 1215 required California car dealers to properly disclose vehicle history information before their customers purchase a car. Seeking a low-cost compliance solution, over 500 used car dealers in California have chosen VinAudit.com as their exclusive source for vehicle history reports.

“We’re just getting started,” Wu says optimistically, “One day, vehicle history may even become free.”

VinAudit.com is an approved provider and partner of NMVTIS, a US federal database wherein state DMVs, insurance carriers, junk and salvage sites with other record providers are mandated to report to. The company provides instant Vehicle History Reports that is sent to your email, can be downloaded as PDF file and can be printed. Moreover, they also offer Dealers Program and Resellers Program to the Automotive Industry with great benefits and simple set up. VinAudit.com’s mission is to make Vehicle History for free!

car dealer bond 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.

are you in the market for a red ferrari ???

California Auctions $16 Million Ferrari

Ferrari Testa Rossa was auctioned in California for more than $16 million, making the red Ferrari 1957 sports car the most expensive auto ever sold at an automobile auction.

The race car is a Ferrari prototype and the first Testa Rossa ever built, with a 300-horsepower 3.0-liter V-12 engine and a 4-speed manual transmission.

Spectators at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, California erupted in a roar as a staggering price was reached in the final bid but, shortly afterward, an anonymous buyer offered a record-breaking $16.4 million for the classic Ferrari automobile.

Auctioneers Gooding & Company were as surprised as everyone else at the shocking $16,390,000 winning bid for the classic 1957 Ferrari.

The red Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa is a former Concours d’Elegance first-place winner, and the vehicle will now be added to the anonymous buyer’s extensive investment portfolio.

California has a world record-setting love for its cars, indeed.

same old story…..cheat the government…..go to prison

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.

car dealers…..salesperson as employee or independent contractor ???

 

Larry Miles, senior attorney with The Miles Law Firm, recently won an important decision for the California auction industry involving the question of whether auto auctioneers are employees or independent contractors.  Arguing that auto auctioneers are sufficiently unique in their skills and independent in their work to justify being deemed independent contractors,  Miles persuaded the Employment Development Department administrative law judge to reject EDD efforts to classify the auctioneers as employees of the auto auction.

The important decision comes on the heels of a new state law, SB 459, that imposes new penalties for businesses that “willfully” misclassify workers as independent contractors.  In addition to penalties of potentially $5,000 to $25,000 per infraction, the new statute requires the offending employer to announce their “willfull” misclassification on their website for a year.  The new penalties are in addition to existing taxes and penalties that are due upon a redetermination by EDD.  The state Labor and Workforce Development Agency will enforce the new law effective January 1.

The silver lining for employers in the increased focus on misclassification of workers is the IRS’ recent announcement of an “amnesty” on penalties and interest attributable to a misclassification problem.  The “Voluntary Worker Classification Settlement Program” is available for employers who meet the eligibility requirements, which include 1) consistent prior treatment of the workers as independent contractors, 2) issuance of 1099’s for the workers in controversy, and 3) not already the subject of audit by the IRS or a state agency.  Under the program, the IRS will waive certain penalties and interest in consideration of the employer treating the workers as employees going forward and paying a little over 1% of the wages paid to the contractor for the past three years.  Consult the IRS’ website for further information regarding this program.

The new law raises the stakes for an innocent misclassification of a worker as an independent contractor.  Employers should consult with counsel if they have any questions regarding their current classification of any workers as an independent contractor.

The Miles Law Firm, A Professional Corporation, practices civil and business law, including extensive work in the auto and aviation industries. For more information, please email the Firm at mileslaw@milesfirm.com or review the Firm’s website.

dmv car dealer complaint form

Problems with a vehicle purchase can DMV help me

Filing a Complaint with the Department of Motor Vehicles

You should know that DMV has limited resources to review and catalog these complaints.

Your information will be reviewed by Investigations and Audits and/or Licensing Operations.

Not all complaints are investigated.

Use the (Record of Complaint Form (INV 172A)

to register a complaint regarding a new or used vehicle dealer, a broker, dismantler,

registration service, vehicle verifier, driving school or traffic violator school.

Only written complaints, submitted on this form, are accepted.

DMV investigators conduct selective investigations of these licensees and their activities,

based upon the department’s priorities, patterns of misconduct and the availability of personnel.

Your complaint will be kept on file in case an investigation is undertaken against this party or firm.

If this occurs, you may be contacted.

You should know that, even if DMV conducts an investigation, this can only result in criminal or administrative action against the licensee,

and may not result in any monetary judgment or award to you or other victims.

Your only recourse to recover a financial loss, or to seek another remedy,

is to consider filing a civil claim against the licensee.

test drive coverage

all licensed car dealers must maintain

used car dealer insurance

and dealer license plates

to operate their vehicles on the road

+++++

most dealers offer test drives to potential customers

if the dealer secures a copy of the prospective buyers

drivers license and insurance card on an existing vehicle

and

issues a letter of permission to the prospective buyer

( such test drive is legal for up to 7 days )

11580 of the insurance code goes into effect

+++++

11580 of the insurance code

makes the prospective buyers insurance primary coverage

and makes the dealer insurance secondary coverage

so that

if your prospective buyer stacks up the dealer car on a test drive

the dealer can make claim on the prospective buyers insurance

+++++

protect yourself with the proper paperwork on ALL test drives

good luck

thx
