INDIANAPOLIS — The office of Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill announced it has won an $88,536 judgment against Glover Auto Sales and its former owner, Kenneth Glover. The dealer was accused of failing to deliver titles to at least nine car buyers, among other violations of the state’s Deceptive Consumer Sales Act, Title Delivery Act, and Motor Vehicle Unfair Practices Act, ABC affiliate RTV6 reports.
The investigation began with a complaint from Indianapolis resident Teresa Rose, who agreed to finance the purchase of a 2013 Hyundai Elantra on behalf of a friend in April 2017. Rose filed a complaint with the AG after returning the car to Glover Auto Sales, having never received the title. The judgment calls for $10,755.65 in restitution for Rose, $22,828 for two other car buyers, and $55,000 worth of civil penalties for the dealer.
In an interview with RTV6 reporter Kara Kenney, Glover said he was “embarrassed” but blamed an Indiana Department of Commerce audit for the troubles that ultimately closed his dealership after 25 years in business.
“I figured I would just shut down instead of making a mess, and I started taking care of one thing at a time,” Glover said. “It’s true, they didn’t get their titles. I’m in the process of getting everyone their titles now. I’m sorry, everybody is going to be taken care of.
“There’s always a different side of the story,” Glover added. “I was wrong, it was wrong, but it was out of my control.”
