Car dealers and salespeople in 11 counties, including two each in Allegheny and Fayette counties,have agreed to stop deceptive advertising practices and paid fines for listing vehicles online as being sold by private individuals instead of through businesses, Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced on Thursday.
All dealers cited in the sweep advertised on Craigslist as individual sellers rather than as dealers, providing insufficient information to consumers viewing their postings — as is required under state consumer protection law, according to investigators with the attorney general’s Bureau of Consumer Protection.
In southwestern Pennsylvania, dealerships cited were Rau Automotive and Premier Automotive, both in Allegheny County, and Roberts Auto Sales and Triple C Autoplex, both in Fayette County, according to Shapiro.

A New Jersey couple and a homeless Philadelphia man who became famous for a dispute over GoFundMe campaign funds conspired with each other to make up a false story to earn the donations and will now face charges, according to a complaint obtained by NBC 10 Philadelphia.
The original story was this: Johnny Bobbitt, who was homeless, gave his last $20 to Kate McClure, a stranded motorist in Philadelphia in November last year, to help her get gas. To thank him, McClure, 28, and her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, 39, created a GoFundMe account to raise funds for Bobbitt. Around 14,000 people donated to the campaign, which brought in more than $400,000 overall.But investigators said the three deliberately prevented donors from gaining information “that would affect their judgment about solicited contribution to that fundraising effort,” according to the station. Now they will face charges including conspiracy and theft by deception, a source familiar with the case told NBC 10
The suspect is described as a tall white male with a medium build. He was wearing a black hoody with red outlining, a Penguins knitted cap and gray pants.
The unknown suspect entered the PNC Bank at 3643 SR 31 in Donegal Township and demanded money from a teller. The suspect did not pull out a weapon, but told the teller he had one.
