Palm Beach Dealerships, Inc d/b/a Palm Beach Pre-Owned / $201,000 Bad Check
On 9/26/11, Stephen J. Lavine, co-owner of Palm Beach Dealerships, Inc d/b/a Palm Beach Pre-Owned, gave Action Automotive a $201, 000 check for the purchase of a 2010 Rolls Royce that we were selling for a customer. The check was returned for insufficient funds.
Action Automotive had taken the vehicle to Manheim Auction, but it did not sell. Mr. Lavine said that he had a purchaser in Fort Lauderdale. He took the vehicle's title to Manheim, who issued a good check to Mr. Lavine for $201, 000 at the same time that
Mr. Lavine knowingly issued Action Automotive.
