BOSTON (Legal Newsline) — Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey announced Dec. 7 that Auto Number One Inc. and its owner Mark Hanna will cease operations and pay restitution for allegedly selling unsafe and unreliable cars, failing to make repairs that were promised or required under warranties,and operating in unlicensed locations.

 

“This dealership scammed hard-working Massachusetts residents who were looking for a good deal and sold vehicles that put consumers’ lives, families and others at risk,” Healey said. “Not only were these vehicles dangerous, many of the drivers were left with unreliable or unusable cars and significant debt.”

 

Auto Number One must stop all operations in the state of Massachusetts as per the settlement agreement. Additionally, the company and Hanna must pay $25,000 in restitution to consumers. An $85,000 penalty against the defendants will be suspended so long as they comply with the terms of the consent judgment.

 

Handling the case for Massachusetts were assistant attorney general Ann E. Lynch and paralegal Sharon Coles of Healey’s Western Massachusetts Regional Office, and investigator Anthony Crespi in the the attorney general's Boston Office.
