stewart who is holding the real maserati 1241 ???

With the recent filing of civil fraud & tax evasion charges in federal court against a millionaire unlicensed car broker from Los Angeles County we thought it would be a good time to offer a car collector education workshop devoted to reminding all car collectors of the importance of a complete consignment agreement and correct & complete broker agreement.

Rick Cole of Los Angeles and his company Rick Cole Auctions along with his partner Terrence Price and his company Legendary Motorcars have an impressive resume of selling consignments & brokering for over 50 years.

It appears Rick Cole Auctions is not licensed to do business in California as an auctioneer, used car dealer or autobroker.

From The Dmv Dealer License Database 03/03/2023:

Rick Cole Auctions NO RECORD FOUND

All vehicle auctions, consignment sellers & those brokering vehicle sales agreements can only be executed by licensed dealers in the state of California.

Rick Cole is charged with falsifying documentation to Adam Levine involving a vehicle trade & cash transaction.

Rick Cole and his agents are accused of creating a false Maserati Ghibli 4.9 SS. Last 4 of the VIN ” 1241 “

Terrence Price, on the website his admitted dealer license partner may be charged with false documentation, failing to file a report of sale. failing to profer title and sales tax evasion in his and Legendary Motorcars alleged paticipation in this fraud.

Rick Cole as an unlicensed auctioneer in California & Terrence Price as his admitted partner and owner of Legendary Motorcrs of Gazelle California are facing an ongoing investigation with the CDTFA to verify that the report of sale if reported matches the amounts collected from Adam Levine.

Here is a local newspaper story about Rick Cole’s fraud & tax evasion troubles:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11782927/Adam-Levine-sues-car-dealer-allegation-1971-Maserati-sold-fake.html

Per court documents we reviewed and first obtained by the Los Angeles Times Levine‚Äôs lawsuit explains that when he later tried to resell the Maserati he discovered the vehicle identification number Rick Cole had given him actually belonged to a different car owned by British car collector Clive Joy for several years. Levine and his team further found that the car Cole had sold him had reportedly had its authenticity questioned before and was pulled from an auction in 2015 over concerns about its status.

Court Records indicate that Rice Cole of Rick Cole Auctions Inc has recently been served with federal civil charges of fraud & tax evasion. 

Court Records indicate Terrence Price & Legendary Motorcars of Gazelle Ca has not yet been served.

Legendary Motorcars Owner is Terrence Price.

We have asked the DMV & CDTFA for guidance in the areas of what to teach car collector clients if a luxury car consignment dealer is served in federal court on serious fraud & tax evasion charges.

If you need to file a consignment fraud or tax evasion complaint with DMV Investigations here is the DMV Complaint Portal.

If you need to file a consignment fraud or tax evasion complaint with the CDTFA investigations unit here is the CDTFA Complaint Portal.

It appears that Rick Cole & Rick Cole Auctions as unlicensed entities in the state of California have no dealer surety bond upon which one would normally make a fraudulent sale claim. The purpose of the car dealer license surety bond is to provide a $ 50,000 pot of gold to protect consumers if allegations such as these are proven to be true. The claim in this case of $ 850,000 far exceeds the amount of car dealer bond relief available.

If you need to make a claim on the dealer bond of Legendary Motorcars here is their dealer license and bond information.

California law requires a licensed used car dealer to post the year make and model along with the VIN & current mileage. of a vehicle when offering that vehicle for sale.
