Dealership Gets Paid to Steal ID’s, Suit Claims

     TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (CN) – A federal racketeering complaint accuses a Nissan dealership employee of telling a customer that he could “fix” her credit for $500, and then stealing someone’s identity to make the sale, leaving the customer to deal with her subsequent arrest on charges of identity theft.

     Wanda Carr claims the credit-repair scheme Mark Tolbert operated at Townsend Magnolia Nissan qualifies as a corrupt organization. She says Tolbert routinely induced potential customers to pay him to fix their credit in order to buy better cars, which he arranged by stealing identities and using the stolen information to buy cars at the dealership.
     She demands nominal, actual and punitive damages.
