Fraud, Lies, Non-Disclosure, Horrible customer service and communications, and so much more....
This is one of the complaints: We have also had a very bad experience with Century Motors, Frank and Gina Fuzzy and Austin Bullock. Unlike the unsuspecting victims that Century Motors preys upon, I am a paralegal and held a south Florida dealer license in the past, so let’s say I am pretty familiar with the law. This is not any type of Legal advice as I am not an attorney!! If anybody needs any contact information for the State Attorney’s office, DMV inspectors or the multiple outlets to leave negative reviews for Century Motors please, inbox me for the information as it would not allow URL's. Understand, they can play games on an individual basis, but multiple complaints to the right places will put an end to their games. All you have to remember is this “Non-Disclosure”. One of various emails sent to Frank and crew: Frank (Century Motors): You lie, cheat and tried to steal from us as you have done to so many unsuspecting victims, and you accuse us of extortion, you are clueless. The truth has no agenda, Frank you told us the truck has no issues it was inspected and test drove, not true!!! We have picture and video documentation. Of how we received the truck Sunday 1/22/2017 this is a auction vehicle at best and should have never been sold retail. See we also owned a dealership in South Florida in the past and understand the laws. All I can say is you have to be kidding me!!! (Quote from Frank ; “immaculate, no noticeable defects and drives perfectly”) These damages were never DISCLOSED. Hence “NON DISCLOSURE” Illegal The dealership knew, or because of the obviousness of the damage and defects should have known that portions of the vehicle had been damaged, and that some of the damage were still not fixed. Frank and Century motors should have known the vehicle was in one or more collisions causing damage to the vehicle. Century motors was aware of this when they sold the vehicle to us. The Toyota Sequoia was purchased as our business vehicle and now this is impeding on our ability to make a living, we will have to spend hours trying to get this truck where it’s safe to drive. we have now lost approximately $3000+ in time, lost wages costs this has been a huge inconvenience and we are going to recover from the damages caused by Frank Fuzzy Century motors fraud. Needless to say that besides the monies that this truck will cost to be repaired properly we have to take time out of our busy schedule to bring the truck around to all these different places to have the repairs done and lose income because of it. You were dishonest to us, if you would have been honest from day one we could of weighted the options of the costs of repairs and the cost of the truck to see if it was worth the price or not, $11,900 and having to add another $2500 on top of that, this vehicle is not worth it then. NON DISCLOSURE; is FRAUD 1. Loud banging noise in front 2.Bad shacking in front 3.Not 1 but 2 broken axles in front 4.Bad ball joints 5.Bald tires in rear 6.Chopped tires in front 7.Front end out of alignment 8 Hit in rear hatch and bumper 9.Rear hatch lock inoperable due to external damage 10 Engine miss was told spark plugs need replacing 11.Rims were spray painted to hide salt pitting wow what else is covered up. Also remember Century Motors was going to ship without fixing This sequoia with a dangerous lower ball joint recall/defect after the $4000 deposit and a sign contract not to mention the back dated documents oops. Frank who extorting who??? Florida Statute, 501.976(5)...it is an unfair or deceptive act or practice to: Represent orally or in writing that a particular vehicle has not sustained structural or substantial skin damage unless the statement is made in good faith and the vehicle has been inspected by the dealer or his agent to determine whether the vehicle has incurred such damage. Q: What is "auto dealer fraud"? A: "Auto dealer fraud" is a term that describes deceptive and unlawful practices used by automobile dealers, at almost any stage of the vehicle purchase process -- from advertising, to negotiation of vehicle pricing and financing terms. Examples of auto dealer fraud Include "bait and switch" advertising practices, deceptive inflation of vehicle prices, and failure to disclose information about a vehicle oops Common Examples of Illegal Practices Most types of fraudulent activity that take place at auto dealerships can be characterized as either non-disclosures, or affirmative misrepresentations. Non-disclosures occur when a salesperson withholds information affecting the desirability or value of a vehicle. Examples include a failure to inform the customer that the vehicle was previously used as a rental, that it was involved in a collision or sustained other hidden damage, or that the vehicle’s warranty has expired. Proving Fraud and Collecting Damages A victim of auto dealer fraud will likely find a tort action to be the most effective means of inflicting meaningful retribution upon the dealer and obtaining a significant damage award. To establish a common law claim for fraud, the victim must show that the dealer omitted or misrepresented material facts, resulting in a financial loss for the victim. To qualify as material, the facts at issue must pass the “but for” test. In other words, but for the omitted or misrepresented facts, the customer would not have purchased the vehicle. FACT Once fraud is proven, the victim may be entitled to various remedies tailored to the specific circumstances, such as being allowed to surrender an unwanted vehicle and having the court order a refund of all payments made toward the purchase. The victim may also be allowed to cancel any outstanding loan balances or obligations, and receive compensation for wrongful repossession of the vehicle, if that occurred. Court costs and attorney fees may be available, and in cases of especially shameful or predatory conduct by the dealer, the victim may be awarded punitive damages. How sad and pathetic, Frank is it when grown men have no other means of providing for their families but to lie and cheat and steal to make a living. All criminals are the same Frank; they get greedy, comfortable, brazen and sloppy make they make mistakes and get caught, case and point. I do have to say thanks Frank, anything over $10k make a much more interesting Tort , thanks!!! Unlike all your other unsuspecting victims we have the time and resource to see this through and you will be held accountable. See I am a man of my word and I promise you this fight is not going to be worth the few dollars you made on this swindle. We have been advised from this time forward we conduct any and all communications by email correspondence only, NO PHONE CALLS. You have 24 hours to reply to this email as to how you are going to handle this pre-meditated fraud before further legal actions are taken. Game On!! And this Bullshit about you offered to buy the truck back and we refused does not excuse from the FRAUD you committed.
