Greedy Queens Dealership pays the consequences

Recently several Queens car dealerships were accused of using questionable sales strategies to rip off clients and now has to pay a solid $165,000 as part of a legal settlement with the state attorney general’s office.

Nemet Motors and its businesses agreed to the six-figure payment in a deal with the Attorney General announced on Friday.

New York State lawyers said the dealers furnished vehicle contracts with unwanted amenities — like security devices and wheel-protection products — and pressured customers to sign contracts before they could even look at it.

The car dealer got near about $50,000 in fines from the NY’s Attorney General, and also has to pay approximately $110,000 to known Nemet customers. If there happens to be more victims then  Nemet customers who step forward before July 30 with credible complaints could cost the Jamaica-based business even more cash.

One of the scammed customers was Brooklyn resident Shauntel Wilson, state lawyers said. She bought a Nissan Altima with the promise her loan would get refinanced within months and her monthly payments would decrease from $781 to $548.

That decrease never happened and state lawyers discovered Nemet falsely raised her income on a credit application — inflated up the contract with about $2,600 in undisclosed products, the Attorney General said.

“If you’re going be in business, you shouldn’t look to get over on people. It’s just not fair,” Wilson told the Daily News.

Nemet and the Attorney General’s office settled the case out of court late last month. In the paperwork, Nemet didn’t admit or deny the AG’s claims. Employee training will be changed and the business will be watched by an outside monitor for at least three years as part of the deal.

Attorney General Barbara Underwood said the deal “ensures impacted consumers will get the restitution they deserve and put an end to the dealerships’ deceptive practices.”

Nemet Motors’ owner and its lawyer couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.

To be eligible for a refund, consumers have a July 30 deadline to file complaints. Nemet Motors complaints can be filed through the AG’s website, or by calling, either online or calling 800-771-7755.
