Elkhart County car dealership accused of more shady deals
ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. -- More than nine months after the State shut them down, customers of Walters Used Car and Truck Superstore in Elkhart are coming forward with allegations of fraud and harassment. The State shut the dealership down in August for breaking dozens of laws. In order to re-open, the owner agreed to pay a fine and not to allow the company's president, Mark Scearse, to run the lot or manage any operations.
After our story aired on Tuesday, Simmons reached out to give a comment. He says he was simply doing his job. He was given paperwork to repossess the vehicle and reached out to Morton.
“I got the file. I was doing my job. Everything before that had nothing to do with me.” Simmons explained. “(The truck) was hidden really good. I looked for it and couldn’t find it.”
Simmons says he also reached out to Morton’s attorney, but never heard back.
ABC57 also went to the dealership. Despite the visit happening during business hours, the dealership door was locked and nobody answered the door.
