Ag Sues Used Car Dealership On Civil Charges Of Fraud, False Advertising
State Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Monday sued a used car dealership network in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland on behalf of the people of California, alleging the company engages in fraud and false advertising.
Paul Blanco's Good Car Co. is headquartered in Sacramento and operates dealerships in seven California locations, including Oakland and Fairfield, and two Nevada cities.
The civil lawsuit alleges the dealerships engage in falsifying credit applications, usually without consumers' knowledge; inflating the value of cars in documents given to finance companies; false and deceptive advertising; and charging customers for unauthorized add-ons. The suit asks for an injunction and civil penalties.
A company spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
