This email is a CONSUMER TIP to RipOff #4140. It was sent by badbusinessbureau.com COnsumer Advocate Robert Sokol at [email protected] U Park 'Em U Sell 'Em illegally misrepresents car history to ripoff consumers (#4140) CONSUMER TIP: Besides Georgia, it is a state law in most states about disclosure. The problem with this, is if someone else sells the car who doesn't know the vehicles history. This is normally why a seller will have a company like "U Park Em" sell their car. We start to get into a gray area, because I assume that "U Park Em" was not the legal owner of the vehicle and probably knew very little about the history of the vehicle. You might check to see if "U Park Em" has a dealer license to sell cars. If so, many states have an 'Implied Warranty' which might help you when a vehicle is sold by a dealer. Did you check this vehicle against Carfax.com which could have told you about the previous accident damage? NOTE: Whenever purchasing a used vehicle, always have a mechanic check the car beforehand!
