Hylan Auto Sales/Staten Island Auto Warehouse Complaint - Criminal Proceedings

Review by calvo on 2007-12-26
I sold my 2004 Honda Accord to Hylan Motors,Hylan Blvd. Staten Island, Ny on 8/8/07, for $10,500.00. They issued me a check which was returned by the bank to me for insufficient funds. The companies two owners are dishonest thieves.

They sold my car, I signed over the title, and they have yet to reissue me another check. STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!Be advised that criminal proceedings are being prepared as I write this complaint.

They deserve to be put out of business forever. the BBB has also been notified.

Thank you, "Calvo," for warning your readers about this shady dealership in the Staten Island area.

I hope your lawyer is a smart cookie. What they have done is pay you with a bad check which means you've never really been paid. And then they sold YOUR vehicle without your permission. I'd call that auto theft.

1. get an attorney
2. call the police and report a stolen vehicle
3. also report a bad check..felony.

I would contact your Attorney General or a governing consumer complaint division and make them aware of this story for their files. It sounds like you are working with an attorney already and that's exactly what you should be doing, preparing a civil suit. I don't know exactly the law in your area, but I believe you can sue for 3-4 times the face value of the check, plus attorney and court fees.

I don't think you want them to go out of business just yet. Contact your states motor vehicle department, dealers are required to post a surety bond when they apply for a license. The DMV will have this information on file so that you may file a claim against it. Good Luck
