car dealer bond may be exposed to attorney fee claims

in recent discussions with larry, executive director of IADAC

we discussed the need for enhanced car dealer education

for existing licensed used car dealers

in that regard here is an article written by a prominent IADAC car dealer attorney

Lawrence Miles

CAR DEALER BONDS MAY BE EXPOSED TO ATTORNEY FEE CLAIMS

+++

+++

A recent Court of Appeal case could make it more difficult both for California auto dealers to obtain their dealer bonds, as well as collect on the bonds against other fraudulent dealers.

In Pierce v. Western Surety Co., 2012 Cal. App. LEXIS 734 (2012), the 5th District Court of Appeal held last month that a consumer could recover attorney fees on a dealer bond if the consumer could have recovered such fees in a direct action against the dealer under the Consumer Legal Remedies Act (“CLRA”).

The bond company in Pierce argued that the surety law did not authorize the payment of attorney fees, but the appeals court rejected that argument.  The Court found that consumers were entitled to have their claim satisfied under the CLRA, which includes attorney fees.

The parties to a bond dispute often agree on how to distribute the $50,000 bond.  The bond company, consumers, and DMV all have a preference in bond disputes over the claims of auto auctions, dealers, and other parties.  With the addition of consumer attorney fee claims, consumer attorneys will have little interest in trying to resolve the bond disputes, leaving licensees such as auctions and used car dealers left with less opportunity for recovery against a fraudulent dealer.  More bond cases may go to trial, as the ability of parties to stipulate to a settlement of the bond litigation becomes more problematic.

Finally the cost of obtaining a bond could rise as bond company losses rise with the obligation to pay such attorney fees.  Some bond companies may elect to get out of the business altogether in California.

tesla dealership battle moves to ohio

By  Dan Gearino

A trade group for Ohio car dealers is asking a Franklin County court to rescind Tesla Motors’ license to sell new cars, citing what they say are violations of Ohio law.

The plaintiffs in the case also include several central Ohio dealer groups, such as Midwestern Auto Group of Dublin, Ricart Automotive of Groveport and several of the Germain family dealerships.

“If a license is not granted with proper authority, then that license should be rescinded,” said Sara Bruce, vice president of legal affairs for the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association.

The defendants are the Ohio Department of Public Safety, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and Tesla.

In the suit, which was filed in Franklin County Common Pleas Court, the dealers say that the state agencies improperly approved Tesla’s dealer license earlier this year because the company did not provide a copy of its contract with the manufacturer of the vehicles to be sold.

In this case, the manufacturer and the retailer are the same company, but the dealers say that the law still calls for proper documentation.

Even if Tesla had provided a contract, it would not have been valid because the law requires such an agreement to be between “two separate contracting parties,” Bruce said.

Tesla did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Earlier this month, Tesla opened a store at Easton, the automaker’s first retail outlet in Ohio.

Also this month, the auto dealers association made an unsuccessful attempt to get the Ohio General Assembly to outlaw Tesla’s business model.

The lawsuit is the next step in the dealers’ attempt to stop Tesla from gaining a foothold in the state.

Unlike most auto brands, Tesla sells its all-electric cars directly to consumers through company-owned stores.

This is different from the way established auto brands sell their products. Companies such as Ford, General Motors and Honda sell through a network of independently owned dealers.

Established dealers have raised concerns that Tesla’s model is opening the door for other automakers to open company-owned stores, which they say would undermine the concept of an independent dealer network.

The dealers say they are trying to preserve a system that employs 50,000 Ohioans, while Tesla says the dealers are monopolists who are wary of real competition.

Tesla has faced similar legislative and legal battles in other states.

FTC tips for a red flag rules program if you offer credit

+++

Are you complying with the Red Flags Rule?

The Red Flags Rule requires many businesses and organizations to implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program designed to detect the warning signs — or “red flags” — of identity theft in their day-to-day operations. By identifying red flags in advance, businesses will be better equipped to spot suspicious patterns that may arise — and take steps to prevent a red flag from escalating into a costly episode of identity theft.

Resources on this site can help business people educate their staff and colleagues about complying with the Red Flags Rule.

What Compliance Looks Like

Your Identity Theft Prevention Program is a “playbook” that must include reasonable policies and procedures for detecting, preventing, and mitigating identity theft. Your Program should enable your organization to:

  1. identify relevant patterns, practices, and specific forms of activity — the “red flags” — that signal possible identity theft;
  2. incorporate business practices to detect red flags;
  3. detail your appropriate response to any red flags you detect to prevent and mitigate identity theft; and
  4. be updated periodically to reflect changes in risks from identity theft.

The Red Flags Rule also includes guidelines to help financial institutions and creditors develop and implement a Program, including a supplement that offers examples of red flags.

The FTC and the federal financial agencies have issued Frequently Asked Questions and answers to help businesses comply with the Rule.

Who Must Comply with the Red Flags Rule?

The Rule requires “financial institutions” and “creditors” that hold consumer accounts designed to permit multiple payments or transactions — or any other account for which there is a reasonably foreseeable risk of identity theft — to develop and implement an Identity Theft Prevention Program for new and existing accounts. The definition of “financial institution” includes:

  • 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.

A change in the law on December 18, 2010 amended the the definition of “creditor,” and limits the circumstances under which creditors are covered. The new law covers creditors who regularly, and in the ordinary course of business, meet one of three general criteria. They must:

  • 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.

Bookmark this site and check it often for revisions that reflect changes in the law.

car dealer insurance 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.

###
The California Department of Insurance, established in 1868, is the largest consumer protection agency in California, regulating the $123 billion insurance marketplace. In 2013 the California Department of Insurance received more than 170,000 calls from consumers and helped recover over $63 million in claims and premiums.

There are basically three major steps you must complete to getting your license.
Step One
Complete the TriStar Motors 6 hour new dealer course, including our
practice test Sign up now online.
Obtain your class certificate upon completion of the course.
Make an appointment with the local DMV Inspector and pass the DMV Examination.
You will need 28 of 40 correct to pass the dmv multiple-choice examination. Three examination attempts are allowed on one pre-licensing certificate, one week apart. ( if you fail the car dealer examination go to http://licensedsalesperson.com & study )

After that if you fail the examination we retrain & re-certify you for free. Our dmv pre-licensing certificates are valid one year from the date of your car dealer class.

Expired certificates can be renewed by faxing your photo ID, contact number, expired certificate and your current mailing address to us at: 1-888-948-1795. Pre-licensing car dealer class fee of $100. when you submit your expired certificate.

Step Two
Prepare and submit your dealer application with a valid surety bond, resale permit & zoning approval letter
You will have to identify the type of dealership including an estimate of sales volume
The application must include a surety bond. A bond is a promise you make to the state, a promise that you will, in the event of a problem, have adequate financial coverage to solve the problem.
$ 10,000 bond needed if: Wholesale Only & less than 25 cars per year
Otherwise a $ 50,000 bond is needed
The premium you will pay to obtain a bond is based on the collective credit of the owners of the dealership.
The application must include a resale permit.
The Board of Equalization issues these resale permits and may require an additional bond for sales tax collection.
The application must include a zoning approval letter.
Each locality may place restrictions and charge fees to obtain local zoning approval. This is usually handled in an office called planning, and is generally where building permits are offered.
Some cities allow wholesale only in the home office. This will usually be approved with restrictions on vehicle storage and outsign signage.
Sometimes is it easier to start as wholesale & build up to retail.
Since wholesale dealers are restricted to within the industry acquisition and no selling to the public, some retail dealers will sell the occasional vehicle for a wholesaler.
This is known as a drafted sale, and the fee ranges from as low as $ 50. to as high as $ 1000.
Remember, the Inspector will have to put his or her name on your application prior to submission to DMV headquarters in Sacramento. The more complete and concise your application the greater the chance of acceptance and approval.
Step Three
Office Preparation and Photo Set
In order for your office to pass inspection several requirements must be met & demonstrated in photos prior to an actual inspection by the DMV.
A temporary license may be issued at the discretion of the Inspector prior to actual inspection.
A set of photos will help insure a temporary license & approval.
All dealers must maintain an office.
All offices must receive proper zoning approval.
Two dealers may not share the same address / office.
A dealer may share space with another business as long as such usage is approved by the local zoning authority and the business are clearly marked and separate.
The required photos are of the:
– Building
– Outside Sign
– Display Area
– Office
– Business License
– Posted Resale License
– Office Phone
– Office Signs
– Locked Cabinet or Safe
– Checkbook / Deposit Slip

you may get original plates in california for your collector car

Reassignment of Old Plates to a Collector Vehicle

New Policy

Old California plates (regular series) may be re-assigned to a collector vehicle, even if
the vehicle has a database record under a different license plate, when all of the
following conditions are met:
• Evidence is submitted to show that the old plates were once registered (assigned)
to the collector vehicle in California (see new requirements below).
• The old plate number is not on record or reserved as a special interest plate in the
Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) database.
• The old plate’s combination of letters and numbers do not carry any connotations
offensive to good taste and decency.
• The owner (collector) has both the front and rear old plates for an automobile or
commercial vehicle or the single old plate for a motorcycle or trailer.

New Requirements

To put old, regular series California plates back on the collector vehicle, the original or
a photocopy of the California title, registration card, or renewal notice must be
submitted to the DMV to show that the plates were once registered to the vehicle (a
copy may only be used as proof the plates were registered to the vehicle; a copy cannot
be used for any other DMV purpose).

Procedures
To have the old, regular series California plates re-assigned to the vehicle submit:
• The proof that the plates were once registered to the vehicle (as noted above).
• A Statement of Facts (REG 256) from the vehicle owner stating in section G and
signing in section H to certify:
— The old plate number to be assigned to the vehicle.
— The old plates will not be affixed to the vehicle unless DMV sends approval.
— The plates currently on the vehicle will be surrendered to DMV if the old
plates are approved.
— Their daytime telephone number so the DMV can call if they have a question.
• There is no fee to reregister the old plates; however, any other fees or renewal
fees due within the next 75 days must be paid.
• All the required original documents for the application (transfer, nonresident, etc.)
in addition to old plate application requirements.
