Unethical Auto Dealer
Last year, according to Chicago's WBBM-TV, Palmen Motors in Kenosha, Wis., sold a brand-new GMC Terrain SUV to an elderly couple, 90 and 89. The husband was legally blind and in hospice care on morphine, and the wife had dementia and could barely walk. According to the couple's daughter, her brother, David McMurray, wanted the SUV but couldn't qualify financially. He drove his mom from Illinois to Wisconsin to sign the documents while a Palmen employee went to Illinois to get Dad's signature (three weeks before he died, it turns out). An attorney for Palmen Motors told the TV station the company regretted its role and would buy the vehicle back.
