The Worst and Best Practices for a Used Car Dealer

Posted by Brandes Elitch on Thu, Sep 27, 2018 @ 08:45 AM

It was Thursday, September 19, a warm day in Los Angeles.

We were working the day watch out of Bunco.

My boss is Captain Di Donna. My partner is Travis; he’s a good cop. My name is Joe Sunday.

We got a call about a scam at the Buy Here, Pay Here used car dealer in Universal City. We checked it out. The suspect was in the back lot, selling a used car to an elderly couple.

The female victim approached us and said, “It was terrible, officer; just terrible.”

Please, ma’am, just the facts.

“I’ll give you the facts,” she said. “I drove by this lot on the way home. There were balloons and free cake and cookies. The sign said, ‘FREE FINANCING.’ I decided to check out a car that fit my budget.

Reasons People Stop Payment on Checks

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Tue, Sep 18, 2018 @ 07:44 AM

Buena Vista Auto Works repairs a customer's vehicle, accepts a check payment for the services, and sends the happy motorist on his way. All is well until the next morning when the driver discovers that he wrote the check for $4,000 instead of $400, the correct amount.

In this instance, most people would simply ask the shop to destroy the original check and write an amended check for $400.

Unfortunately, the customer decides to initiate a stop payment on the $4,000 check at his bank instead of contacting the shop for resolution. The bank charges him a $35 stop-payment fee and the shop now possesses a check with no apparent value. What recourse does the shop have?

Five Trends in the 2018 Building Materials Industry: Pt 1

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Tue, Sep 11, 2018 @ 06:45 AM

The focus is on sustainable products and technology, but other trends are also having a profound influence on the building materials industry. Many of these disruptive changes are interdependent, and as expected, there is a direct correlation between construction and building materials.

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Fri, Aug 24, 2018 @ 07:45 AM

Check guarantee companies are a small segment of the financial services industry, and CrossCheck has seen competitors come and go since launching in 1983. Over the years, some privately owned check guarantee firms have been gobbled up by much larger conglomerates, yet CrossCheck has remained independently owned throughout its distinguished history.

More importantly, though, CrossCheck is periodically contacted by merchants who are looking for a new check guarantee company because they just parted ways with their old one. Disgruntled merchants come in all shapes and sizes, but their reasons for dissatisfaction generally center on a group of check processing faux pas:
