Fla. Dealer Under Investigation After Repossessing Customer’s Car

January 09, 2014

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is charging Downtown Auto Sales of Palm Beaches with 10 violations of state law — including failure to abide by the contract, false financing, and title issues — after the used-car operation repossessed a customer’s vehicle, wptv.com reports.

Eddie Graham, whose vehicle was repossessed by the dealership, was issued a receipt after he made his last car payment. It claimed he owed more money for the tires.
