By Staff Writer January 30, 2020


A Wichita, Kan., used car dealership; its owners and a salesperson have entered into a consent judgment with the local district attorney’s office.

The Consumer Protection Division  of the 18th Judicial District of Kansas investigated Rafmen, LLC, in Wichita, after receiving a consumer complaint regarding undisclosed damage and possible safety issues on a car that the consumer purchased. The district attorney’s office investigated, and concluded that Rafmen, LLC, owners, Wasihi Subair,  Abiodun Afodunrinbi,  and salesperson Abiodun Subairhad violated the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.

The AG found they failed to disclose safety issues and the salesman was unlicensed. Additionally, they advertised vehicles on Facebook Marketplace but failed to disclose the sales were being offered by a dealership. They admitted the violations and agreed to refund the consumer $2,621. The consent judgment calls for the payment of $20,000 in civil penalties in addition to other costs and expenses. The consent judgment also calls for an injunction from engaging in deceptive or unconscionable acts and cooperation with any future complaints.
