Attorney general accuses Ohio Auto Credit of Consumer Sales Practice Act violations

By Mark Iandolo | Oct 12, 2016

CLEVELAND (Legal Newsline) — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has announced a lawsuit against Ohio Auto Credit LLC and its owners for allegations of failing to deliver motor vehicle titles to consumers as mandated by Ohio law.


Ohio Auto Credit and its owners allegedly violated the state’s Consumer Sales Practices Act. DeWine’s office received 12 complaints the past year against the dealership as consumers maintained that they purchased a vehicle from the dealership yet never received a title. To assist consumers, DeWine tapped into the Title Defect Rescission Fund, a program that helps reimburse consumers when a dealership fails to deliver a title as mandated by the law. DeWine has used $27,000 from this fund to assist alleged victims of Ohio Auto Credit.


DeWine’s office filed the lawsuit in the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. DeWine seeks reimbursement for consumers and reimbursement for the Title Defect Rescission Fund. Additionally, he seeks a permanent injunction to end to any violations of the Consumer Sales Practices Act, as well as an order barring Ohio Auto Credit’s owners, Mark Gallo and Tim Campbell, from maintaining an auto dealer license in the state.
