Mid-Hudson News: “Car Delaers Settle With State AG For False Advertising:
” . . . Poughkeepsie Chevrolet mailed thousands of fliers to Hudson Valley owners of General Motors cars with a headline that read “IMPORTANT – SECOND NOTICE – SAFETY RECALL,” complete with a recall number, warning consumers that their vehicles “may be at risk” and to call their “designated safety recall center” and schedule an appointment to address the recall. In reality, the recall, including the recall number, was fictitious. The phone number listed on the flier was actually Poughkeepsie Chevrolet’s service center, for which the dealer hoped to increase business.”
