Minnesota AG sues Fridley dealership, alleging deceptive sales practices

The Minnesota Attorney General's Office on Tuesday sued a Fridley used car dealership for violating consumer protection laws, alleging it fraudulently sold more than 3,000 vehicles and targeted Spanish-speaking customers.

Midwest Car Search and its owner, Scott Spiczka, misrepresented cars as "certified" when they were not and illegally tacked on expensive service contracts without buyers' consent, Attorney General Keith Ellison claims in the suit.

"This is a long-term systemic pattern of deception targeting customers with - though not always - limited English skills," Ellison said at a Tuesday press conference.
