A car dealer from Wichita, Kansas, has been ordered to pay more than $7,000 to resolve a complaint of possible deceptive sales. A Wichita used car dealer will pay more than $7,000 in civil penalties and costs to resolve a complaint of possible deceptive sales.
The Sedgwick County prosecutor’s office announced that its consumer protection division had reached an agreement with the Numak Dealership. Sedgwick District Attorney had accused Numak of listing cars for sale on Craigslist without identifying itself as a car dealer. Kansas law requires car dealers to reveal their involvement in any vehicle sale, lease or rental.
Numak was also accused of selling a vehicle that had a salvage title, and of attempting to improperly limiting warranties.
Under the agreement, Numak will pay the $7,000 fine, plus $747 in court costs, but does not admit to any wrongdoing.
