Mobile, Alabama (WKRGMore) — Mobile police confirmed to WKRG News 5 that they are investigating Wally’s Marine and car sales on Schillinger Road. The MPD said it could not release many details as the investigation was ongoing, but the local credit union told WKRG that those affected by the alleged conduct of the car dealership had been identified. I advised there were several.
James Gauthier traded in two cars in mid-June and purchased a truck from Wally’s Auto & Sales. He said he realized something was wrong after receiving a delinquency notice from the lender who financed the car he traded in.
“I continued to be late,” Ms Gautier said. “Bad, bad. So when I called to check, they didn’t pay me anyway, so the bank had to go pick up the vehicle.”
Gauthier said his car would eventually be seized by the bank from the dealership, but he believed the original contract with the dealership was not honored by the bank.
He said he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to take ownership of his current car, a red 2022 Chevrolet Silverado, because he believes the dealer won’t take ownership of it after paying for it. Ta.
“I’m still paying for it,” Gautier said. “I mean, even if I don’t have the title, I’m going to keep paying until I find something, you know?”
Gautier and others filed a complaint with the police.
I tried calling the retailer’s phone number listed on Google, but they didn’t answer. We obtained the cell phone number of one of her alleged dealer employees.
When we called, the person on the phone identified himself as Kenny Worley and advised us that we could not address customer concerns or complaints without consulting an attorney.
“They will pay for the car,” Wally said by phone. “There’s a lot more than that. You’re just looking at Facebook, but he has two stories about everything and I can’t talk to you guys. I have to talk to my lawyer.” But is that okay?”
Local financial institutions told WKRG News 5 that they were aware of Gautier’s problems, including delinquent payments, ownership issues and credit concerns.
At least 100 other customers have faced similar issues, and the agency said it has filed a lawsuit against the retailer.
Gauthier wants everything resolved and resolved quickly so that his credit score is not further affected.
“I would love to see them successfully fulfill our contract,” said Gauthier. “Then you won’t be bothered with three vehicle notes.”
Mobile police are encouraging those affected by the situation at the outlet to call and report to the police.
So far, no charges have been filed against the dealer’s employees.
