Curbstone task force breaks up fraudulent dealer scheme in East Valley

ADOT, Department of Revenue partnership takes down large operation

February 26, 2020

PHOENIX – Working to protect people around the country from fraud involving used cars, state investigators have broken up a major criminal operation based in the East Valley that illegally produced tens of thousands of titles for vehicles being sold in 42 states.

With seven arrests made on Wednesday, Feb. 19, this is by far the largest operation broken up since Governor Doug Ducey signed legislation in 2018 creating the Arizona Curbstone Enforcement Joint Task Force, which combines the resources of ADOT’s Office of Inspector General, Arizona Department of Revenue and Arizona Independent Automobile Dealers Association. This task force combats vehicle sales made in violation of state laws governing dealer licensing, a practice known as curbstoning.

“Our partnership with the Department of Revenue was invaluable by bringing their investigators in to assist,” said Lt. James Warriner with ADOT’s Office of Inspector General, part of the agency’s Enforcement and Compliance Division. “Together, our agencies are delivering a one-two punch to stop curbstoning and illegal vehicle sales in Arizona.”

The case involves a scheme in which individuals allegedly subscribed to one of several websites identified by investigators to obtain wholesale and retail dealer license credentials from the suspects, rather than the state, for a monthly fee, usually in the hundreds of dollars. These credentials allowed about 1,500 individuals to attend and bid on vehicles at wholesale auctions in their states.

The operation also altered vehicle titles from these subscribers for about $100 per title to make it appear as though the individuals bought the vehicles from one of the suspects’ 31 operations with dealer licenses. More than 31,000 titles were processed this way over the past couple of years, and many of the vehicles involved were never in Arizona.

The operation has generated around $7 million fraudulently over the past couple of years.

ADOT detectives and Department of Revenue investigators, joined by special agents with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, served search warrants at six locations last week, including homes in Chandler and Gilbert and at a storefront in Mesa, arresting the suspects and searching for further evidence. Each suspect is facing multiple charges, including the felonies of fraudulent schemes and artifices, money laundering and tax evasion.

Curbstoning involves selling vehicles in a way that violates the parameters set by a dealer’s license. That could mean selling more than six vehicles in a consecutive 12-month period for an unlicensed dealer, or selling vehicles away from the designated area of sale for a licensed dealer.

In this case, licensed dealers are accused of illegally consigning their licenses out to other individuals in other states, allowing those individuals to bypass paying taxes, registration fees and laws regarding vehicle dealers.

Curbstoned vehicles typically involve other violations such as title fraud, odometer fraud and covered-up flood damage. Consumers in the market for used vehicles should do their homework before handing over any money.

When dealing with cases of curbstoning, ADOT detectives will share case information with Department of Revenue investigators and even bring them along to check out curbstoning sites.

In addition to fraud by licensed and unlicensed dealers, detectives with ADOT’s Office of Inspector General investigate identity theft, fraud involving vehicle title and registration, and support investigations by state, local and federal law enforcement.

VIN Verify 101

What’s a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this: 1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number. No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.

Through VinAudit.com, you can look up records associated with your VIN instantly:

Enter VIN:
What’s this? Example: 1VXBR12EXCP901213

Where can I find my VIN?
You can find your vehicle’s VIN in the title document, the vehicle registration, and on the insurance policy. The VIN could also be located at the following locations on the car itself:

  • On the driver’s side dashboard
    (viewable through the windshield)
  • On the driver’s side door
    (on a sticker in the door jamb)

Why would I order a VIN report?
A VIN report lets you learn about your vehicle’s history. It includes checks for whether the car has been stolen, experienced accidents, recorded as salvaged, as well as many othertitle problem checks. Ordering a VIN report before purchasing a vehicle allows you to catch potential problems and purchase with confidence.

Random DMV inspections are becoming more common

DMV Inspectors are resuming Spot Checks of existing Licensed Used Car Retail Dealers

When a California DMV inspector drops by your dealership, shows you her official identification and says she wants to take a look around she is conducting an unannounced Spot Check.

No need to feel caught off guard, just remember what is required.

Our unique Car Dealer Forms Starter Kit is updated annually and for $ 75. you will have ONE original copy of every form the DMV Inspector will ask to see.

Random DMV inspections are becoming more common.

These unannounced inspections can be a major headache.

The DMV Inspector must give you 30 days to correct any violations before asking a DMV Investigator to issue a citation. The citation leads to a DMV hearing and possible suspension and / or loss of license.

Inspections can become an opportunity to show off your compliance standards and reassure the DMV inspector you understand the importance of compliance.

DMV has the right to examine the public areas of your dealership during business hours and your inventory offered for sale. DMV Inspectors check for violations of the numerous California laws regarding signage, postings and display.

We are the licensing experts and very familiar with the problems that are commonly raised by DMV Inspectors. The DMV uses an inspection checklist during an inspection, and a complete inspection takes at least one hour. Be as cooperative as you can be with the DMV Inspector and understand her goal is compliance, not giving you a citation. She will ask you to sign her completed inspection report and give you a copy. We can help reduce the number of issues raised by your DMV Inspector:

  • Are your dealer and salesperson licenses posted in an easily-visible area?
  • Ensure that the dealer license has been signed by an authorized owner or corporate officer.
  • Are each of these licenses current?
  • Are your Reports of Sale in order & properly secured?
  • Are your used car buyers guides properly completed and posted?
  • Are all of your advertised vehicle ads prominently displayed?

Remember customer information such as credit applications, social security numbers and deal jackets must remain confidential and be secured at all times. Your Red Flag Rules Certification should be clearly posted, especially if you have A BHPH total above 10% of your total sales.
