Settlement reached
(2007-11-21)
(WOUB) - A Fairfield County motorcycle and ATV dealer has agreed to pay 70-thousand dollars in costs and civil penalties for violating Ohio's consumer protection laws.

According to a news release from the Ohio Attorney General's Office, ASK Powersports was advertising its products at one price and then selling the vehicles for as much as $600 more by slipping in freight and dealer charges.

In May, 2006, the A.G's office sued the Lancaster dealer accusing it of violating the state's Consumer Sales Practices Act and Ohio's Advertisement and Sale of Motor Vehicles Rule.

A settlement agreement was filed in Franklin County Common Pleas Court last week.

In addition to the costs and civil penalties, the agreement requires ASK Powersports to resolve all outstanding consumer complaints and opens the door for others who may have been subject to bad business practices to get their money back.
