Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has filed a lawsuit against a North Little Rock used car dealer Monday for not providing a clear title to customers, changing the terms of contracts and selling vehicles without letting customers know the car had been previously been in a wreck.

The lawsuit alleges that North Little Rock resident Chidi Ukegbu — owner of America's Pre-owned Selection located at 1200 and 1222 E. Broadway St. — has violated the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act and the Arkansas Salvage Title Act.

The complaint, which was filed in Pulaski County Circuit Court, accuses Ukegbu of selling vehicles that did not have a clear title at least eight times and hiding information that a vehicle had been salvaged at least one time, according to the attorney general's office.

Ukegbu also is accused of not refunding buyers when "it was apparent that he could not provide a clear title to vehicles," the attorney general's office said in a statement.

Ukegbu also has purportedly changed the financing terms of a contract that results in the customer paying more than originally agreed upon, the complaint states.

McDaniel has asked the circuit court to issue an injunction to stop Ukegbu from "continuing the practices, order him to comply with requests from consumers for refunds and assess civil penalties," according to the news release.

Phone calls to Ukegbu were not immediately returned.
