Tucson – On June 24, 2015, Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed a consumer fraud lawsuit in Pima County Superior Court against A&D’s Auto Care, Desert Paveing [sic], Richard Stevens, Anthony Stevens and David Stevens aka David Lee (collectively “Defendants”). The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Arizona consumers, seeks financial restitution and injunctive relief for victims of alleged fraud.
Using the names A&D’s Auto Care, A&D Auto, A & D Auto Care, A&D Auto Body and A&D’s Auto Care and Collisions, Defendants sold automobile repair, collision and detailing services to consumers in Pima County. The State’s Complaint alleges that Defendants violated the Arizona Consumer Fraud Act (“ACFA”) by accepting money for merchandise and repairs that consumers never received.
Defendants are alleged to have approached customers in parking lots and solicited repairs to damaged vehicles. Defendants also used online postings to attract alleged victims. One consumer purchased a carport roof from Defendants but never received the product.
Desert Paveing [sic], also owned by Defendants, offered paving, pavement repair and cleaning services in Pima County. The State’s Complaint alleges that Defendants violated the ACFA by accepting money for paving services that they did not complete. The Complaint also alleges that Defendant Anthony Stevens violated the ACFA by representing that he was licensed by the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (“ROC”) when neither he nor Desert Paveing [sic] had an ROC license.
“We receive hundreds of calls every month from consumers who believe that they have been victimized,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “The allegations in this Complaint are serious and we want fraudsters to know that the Attorney General’s Office is fighting for consumers left holding the bag.”
This case is being handled by Assistant Attorney General Taren Ellis Langford.
Defendants’ principal place of business is 2631 North Stone Avenue in Tucson, Arizona.
