In today's Quad City Times we read how Iowa consumers are being protected from rip-off artists
A car dealership with a history of defrauding customers cannot operate in Iowa for four years and must pay a $20,000 fine, an order issued by a Scott County judge earlier this week says.
In addition, more than 100 customers who owe money on cars purchased from the business will be forgiven their debt.
Meanwhile, one of the businesses named in the Iowa Attorney General's lawsuit, The Car Boys, continues to operate in Moline but is restricted on how it can advertise to and conduct business with Iowa customers.
Apparently they are free to continue to defraud Illinois customers. The Car Boys used car lot is on 4th Avenue between 54th and 55th streets, just a block from the East Moline border and across the street from Hardees.
