Hey guys, I've been a member here for many years and just recently graduated law school. In the time, I've been a member, I've spent hours reading the posts on this board as well as many others, I have noticed that collector car fraud is a BIG RACKET and something needs to be done. I recently took a job with an energetic law firm which I was able to talk into pursuing collector car fraud cases. These cases would include cars sold on fraudulent built sheets, protecto plats, window stickers, etc. Also restamped engines, VIN and Cowl Tags, misrepresentation of a restoration, inherent diminished value, auction problems (ebay scams), estate issues (wills devising classic cars to charities, trusts, heirs, etc.).
There are more '69 Z28 Camaros out there today than GM built, same with '57 Fuelies and we all know about LS6 Chevelles. If anyone out there knows of anyone who was ripped off buying a fake car that was sold as genuine, please point them in my direction and we can finally get some much needed justice. I have nothing against clones, but it is against the law to misrepresent a vehicle to another person (telling someone it's an SS when it really started life as a 307cu., etc.)
The firm I am working for, The Law Offices of Darrell C. Dethlefs, has contacts with attorneys in all 50 states and a networks is being set up to handle these cases no matter where they arise.
We will handle ANY vehicle fraud cases, Ferrari 250's, Mercedes 190SL, 300SL, Z/28, LS6, SS, L89, etc, anything. Even Ford and Mopar products. Fraudulent car appraisals, restoration misrepresentations, car is sold as "all numbers matching", but has a "CE" motor, etc. If a seller claims a car is something that it isn't, its fraud. If a seller or restoration shop is restamping engine blocks, putting them in cars and selling the cars as numbers matching all original, thats fraud and misrepresentation. We will also represent individuals involved in fraudulent eBay transactions.
