Kan. Dealer Ordered to Pay Customer $2,065

LAWRENCE, Kan. — A Douglas County auto dealer has been ordered by Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s Office to repay a consumer more than $2,000 after violating the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.

South Auto Sales, Eudora, and its owner, Salah Ibrahim, were ordered last week in a consent judgment to reverse an automobile transaction and repay a consumer $2,065. In addition, the company was ordered to repay the attorney general’s office for the costs of the investigation and refrain from further violations of the Consumer Protection Act.

An investigation by the attorney general’s Consumer Protection Division found that the auto dealer required consumers purchasing an automobile on credit to sign a preprinted repossession waiver form that violated the consumers’ rights under the Kansas Uniform Consumer Credit Code and the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.
