AG Yost Sues Akron Used Car Dealership Accused of Title Problems


(AKRON, Ohio) — Attorney General Dave Yost today announced a consumer protection lawsuit against a used car dealership and its co-owners who failed to deliver vehicle titles to customers in northeast Ohio.  
The lawsuit filed in the Summit County Court of Common Pleas accuses Jeffrey Corfman, Derek Rutter and their business, Tri-Majestic LLC, of violating Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act and Certificate of Motor Vehicle Title Act. Their used car dealership, named Majestic Motors, was located at 1941 E. Waterloo Road in Akron. The dealership closed in 2017.
“This short-lived dealership opened in a hurry, quickly ripped off more than a dozen customers and shut down after less than a year,” Yost said.  
Consumers filed 16 complaints against the business with Yost’s office, most of them alleging that they never received titles for vehicles purchased at the dealership.

Yost’s Consumer Protection Section paid $62,612 from the Title Defect Recision Fund to help affected customers resolve their title problems. The lawsuit seeks reimbursement from Corfman and Rutter, as well as civil penalties and an order preventing the men from holding dealer or salesperson licenses in Ohio. 
Consumers who suspect an unfair or deceptive sales practice should contact the Ohio Attorney General’s Office at or 800-282-0515.
