Department of Law Files Lawsuit Against Anchorage Used Car Dealership Alleging Unfair and Deceptive Sales and Advertising Tactics
September 24, 2020
(Anchorage, AK) — Today the Alaska Department of Law filed a complaint against a used car dealership, Anchorage Auto Mart LLC, Anchorage Auto Mart's owner Njazi Musliu a/k/a Jesse Musliu, and salesperson Toni Skilja.
The complaint states that Anchorage Auto Mart purchases, repairs, and then sells "junked" vehicles – meaning vehicles that have been declared totaled by an insurance company and whose titles have been surrendered to the DMV – but that Anchorage Auto Mart has engaged in a pattern of failing to inform customers that the vehicles being sold lacked a valid title.
The complaint also states that Anchorage Auto Mart has misrepresented to consumers that "junked" vehicles have a clean title, and that Anchorage Auto Mart has falsely claimed that certain vehicles had not been in an accident, when in fact the vehicles had been in an accident. The complaint further claims that Anchorage Auto Mart either posted or caused others to post fake positive Facebook reviews.
"Automobile purchases are among the most important purchases Alaskans make. We all have a right to expect dealerships to follow the law and provide accurate information to their customers," said Acting Attorney General Ed Sniffen.
The Alaska Department of Law encourages consumers to report unfair or deceptive business practices by calling the Consumer Protection Unit at (907) 269-5200 or filing a consumer complaint.
