Wilmington Auto Center — Lost or stolen drivers license
I drove from Dayton OH in a rental car to Wilmington Auto Center to look at a Kia. It was a Saturday at 4:50pm. Keith asked for my drivers license and then gave me the key. I returned ten minutes later and gave Keith the keys. I forgot to ask for my license and Keith "forgot" to return it. I didn't discover this until I returned home (an hour from Wilmington). I called and left a message with my address and I sent an email with my address in order for the them to return my drivers license. On Monday, I spoke with them on the phone and they said they would mail it. As of five days later, the license has not been returned. I suspect foul play. Was the license stolen by an employee for illegal purposes? I cannot know. I called the Wilmington Police Department to report this issue. They visited Wilmington Auto Center and they manager claims he "mailed it." Somebody, somewhere has my drivers license and is likely using it for fraudulent purposes due to Wilmington Auto's malfeasance. It is most peculiar that given Wilmington's economy is struggling, an attempt to bring new business to the area is met with poor customer treatment. Stay away from Wilmington Auto Center. Apparently, taking the customer's driver's license and "forgetting" to return is an old dealer trick to force customer to return and start the conversation again. Do you want to buy a car from "old school scam artists?"
