just what is odometer fraud ???

Odometer Fraud

Odometer fraud is the illegal practice of rolling back odometers to make it appear that a motor vehicle has lower mileage than it actually does. Any person who disconnects, resets, or alters the odometer on a motor vehicle with the intent to defraud a subsequent purchaser or lessee is in violation of federal law. See 49 U.S.C. 32701-32711. Penalties can include a civil fine of up to $2000 for each violation and imprisonment for up to three years. Violators may also be liable in a private lawsuit for three times the actual damages or $1500, whichever is greater.

Disclosures

Federal law requires that any person transferring ownership of a motor vehicle to provide the transferee a written disclosure of the cumulative mileage registered on the odometer OR IF THE ACTUAL MILEAGE IS UNKNOWN a disclosure to that effect. That disclosure is to be contained on the title issued in connection with each transfer.

The written disclosure must be signed by the transferor, including his printed name. The transferor must certify that to the best of his knowledge, the odometer reading reflects the actual mileage, or that the odometer reading reflects the amount of mileage in excess of the designed mechanical odometer limit. If the transferor knows that the odometer reading differs from the mileage, he must include a statement that the odometer reading does not reflect the actual mileage and should not be relied upon. In addition, the disclosure must contain the following information:

  • The odometer reading at the time of the transfer (not including tenths of miles);
  • The date of the transfer;
  • The transferor’s name and current address;
  • The transferee’s name and current address; and
  • The identity of the vehicle, including its make, model, year, and body type, and its vehicle identification number.

The written disclosure must also refer to the Federal law and shall state that failure to complete or providing false information may result in fines and/or imprisonment.

how is the @beepi crew and dealer license #84834 still legally allowed to operate ???

we are leading experts in dmv certified car dealer education

beepi.com has made significant waves with its launch of a $ 65M used car dealership startup

beepi.com terms its model disruptive technology

and is funded by the same folks who funded disruptive technology company uber

here is a look at their model from a compliance point of view

+++

one glaring issue for beepi.com is compliance with basic business licenses

the law requires every used car dealership to be licensed and have certain documentation

their santa cruz licensed location is virtually abandoned and is unstaffed

with no business hours posted

and no current business license

their los altos location has no license from the DMV

and has been turned down for a business license by the city of los altos

renegade used car dealer startup

or

criminal lawless rogue used car dealer ???

only dmv investigations can decide for sure

here is the dmv inspection report which each dmv inspector completes

when visiting a used car dealers licensed location

has beepi.com passed its latest dmv inspection ???

we would be curious to know

beepi.com status as a licensed dealer also requires a reseller permit

from the board of equalization

we have been unable to confirm their status with the state board of equalization

here is their current car dealer license status:

please remember our law enforcement officers

And the “R” they are worthy of in return

By Alan Barcelona, President, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association

A Message To Our Members, Sworn & Non-Sworn:

Every law enforcement officer who wears a badge has taken an oath to protect and to serve,  even at his or her own peril.  On a daily basis, these fine, brave men and women RESPOND to calls for help and to very dangerous situations. They RESCUE citizens from harmful individuals and  accidents and in doing so, RISK their own safety and their lives.  They are in the face of danger and often have to make split-second decisions to save others and to save themselves.  Not every human is cut out for this stressful but proud profession and not every human is willing to make that kind of sacrifice for the safety of another, most often, a complete stranger.

In the wake of the “use of force” cases that are currently in the national spotlight, the anti-police rhetoric that has  followed, and the December 20th assassinations of New York City Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos – I want to remind the citizens of California and this nation, that no one puts more on the line each and every day than our law enforcement officers, our firefighters and those who serve in our military.

These law enforcement officers have families – they are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, uncles and aunts, nieces and nephews and cousins.  They, like anyone else who goes to work, have a right to return home to their families at the end of their shifts.

Our law enforcement officers feel the anger and hatred from some of those they have taken an oath to protect, and that hurts.  Our law enforcement officers are in the thick of protestors who hurl rocks and bottles at them as the officers work to keep people and property safe, and that is sinful.  For misguided individuals to stand up in front of microphones and cameras denouncing the peace officers in this country is a shame.

Our law enforcement officers would never demand our RESPECT, they don’t have to – they are worthy of it.  My message to the law-abiding citizens in  this state and in the country is this: Don’t let our law enforcement officers stand alone to shoulder the brunt of anti-police rhetoric that is making headlines.  Let your officers know you are there for them just as they are there for you.  A kind word, a letter, a blue light on your porch.  Be the eyes and ears of our law enforcement officers and please watch their backs.

To our law enforcement officers:  Be safe, be true to your oath, take the necessary precautions to ensure you return home to your loved ones and stand tall!  The silent majority will rise to the occasion and thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

what the five major players

@beepi

@shift_cars

@instamotor

@carkibo

have failed to grasp or realize

is that the government controlled cabal

known as the used car sales industry

yields a cool 12% to the state of california

on every used car vehicle sale

and that any system

using unfair competitive advantage

in a lawless and illegal manner

is doomed to fail

if it impacts the states ability

to continue collecting its share of the prize

+++

enforcement of car dealer rules and regulations

is secondary to the bigger issue

+++

redstar

+++

deliberate and intention engineering of the sales process

to deprive the state of its share

will result in clever and creative

law enforcement methods to prevent the state

from losing its share of this revenue stream

+++

one really has to ask

” what are you thinking ?? ”

+++

gotplates star

+++

the deliberate avoidance of sales tax collection

creates the “taxable event ” scenario

which is doomsday for all of these models

in that they would be responsible for full sales tax

on each and every vehicle within their control

+++

the secondary enforcement of dmv rules

prohibiting ” unfair competitive advantage ”

will ultimately spell doomsday for rogue lawless models

+++

here is the irony

if these disruptive technology models adapted a different approach

and engaged the very system they are fighting

there does exist

under current government rules and regulations

a legal model for this disruptive technology model

to survive and flourish

+++

we wonder if it is greed, arrogance or plain ignorance

which prevents very intelligent folks

from finding success

only time will tell
