    Vern you should know about scams. DO you/have you charged consumers at your dealerships hidden bank fees that are not disclosed on a bill of sale or a bank contract. Are these fees charged against the transaction to reduce commissionable gross profits to reduce commissions paid your employees. Do you have an agreement with your lenders not to pass on these costs and not to disclose these fees to the consumers.

    Are there two sets of non-disclosed fees: 1. a administration fee charged to every consumer of 75 to 495 dollars which is not based on gender/vehicle. 2. An acquisition fee that is from 75 to 4 or 5 thousand dollars that is based on vehicle/gender/credit/price of vehicle.

    Well Vern how about an answer!!!! Or will you just want for the latest lawsuits.

    Vern: if anyone should know about scams ---IT IS YOU. You are named by CREW and other organizations for a reason. FIRST: you are a car dealer SECOND: you have been sued by employees and consumers alike. THIRD: your own CFO filed a claim against you with the IRS(still being investigated) for major tax fraud and also has testified against you in the lawsuit filed against you by your former partner. You even took Habitat for Humanity for huge amount. Even the actions of your attorney come into question. Especially when you go after your critics,

    Now you plead on behalf of the seniors in your area. WHAT do you expect from others when they have you as an example.
