Shady car dealers love to find a way to make an extra buck on a used car. One way they do this is by rolling back the odometer. WIth digital odometer displays, it is often very easy for a car dealer to roll back an odometer. We sue car dealers for odometer fraud and can get significant legal damages. Here’s how you deal with odometer fraud:

1. Why scammers roll back the odometer. Easy–rolling back the odometer lets a dealer sell a heavily-worn car for newer-car prices. A 2007 Honda Fit Sport (such as the Friedman Mobile) with 50,000 miles might sell for $9,676. With 150,000 miles it sells for $5,067. An unscrupulous car dealer might see that $4,600 as easy money.

2. How to spot odometer fraud. Here are a few tips for finding a rolled-back odometer, either before or after the sale.

- Pull a vehicle history report such as a Carfax and AutoCheck. Sometimes these don’t show rollbacks, so just because a CarFax comes up clean doesn’t mean the odometer is too.
- Ask the seller for maintenance records. Even oil change records almost always mark down the mileage.
- Look in the owner’s manual or on service stickers inside the door or under the hood. Did the car dealer leave behind damning evidence?
- Look for damage to the instrument panel. There may also be fingerprints inside the glass. This is a great sign of odometer tampering.
- Is the brake pedal worn? Tires? Take the car to mechanic to see if they can find evidence that the car is more used than it appears.
3. The Federal Odometer Act may protect you. The Federal Odometer Act is a very powerful law that punishes the perpetrators of odometer fraud. Any dealer who rolls back an odometer, or sells a car knowing the odometer has been rolled back, may be liable for triple your money damages, with a minimum of $10,000. Plus they have to pay your attorney’s fees if you win.

We handle odometer fraud cases. Get in touch if you think you’ve been a victim.

We haven't been very active on Google Plus lately, but I wanted to give a few updates on what changes are happening at Friedman Iverson.

In April, we hired Todd Murray. Todd helps consumers who are being harassed by debt collectors by filing lawsuits under the FDCPA. He also helps defend collection suits. Finally, we've beefed up our auto fraud work by adding a dedicated litigator to our team. 

In July, we hired Betsy Butwin. Betsy will be adding to our creative practice, focusing on contracts, trademarks and business formation. But she also adds a new practice area--estate planning. She'll be helping clients with wills, trusts, and other estates issues. 

If you haven't met Todd or Betsy yet, drop by sometime for a beer. We're so excited to have them on board.

Business bankruptcy is often misunderstood--and unnecessary for most small businesses. Get the scoop here.

I had a easy and stress-free experience filing my bankruptcy with Friedman Iverson. David Friedman handled my case wonderfully and was not only very professional and competent with the technical aspects of the case, but he also was patient and kind enough to answer every question thoroughly and in terms I could understand. I especially appreciated the follow-up services to check my credit after the bankruptcy discharge. These services were included in my basic fees. The price was reasonable and I am so glad I didn't go with the cheapest lawyer I could find; it was well worth it to pay a mid-range price to have everything handled well in every aspect. I would recommend contacting Friedman Iverson to anyone considering bankruptcy.
