By CRM staff

Toronto, Ontario — October 30, 2018 — Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council (OMVIC) has charged a married couple for playing a part in purchasing and then later selling numerous vehicles with rolled back odometers and altered VIN’s. 

Min Tian, a former car dealer at Nice Auto Sales in Scarborough, was charged $12,500 by OMVIC, for allowing her husband, Zhijun Wang, to use her OMVIC registration and ID to gain access to wholesale vehicle auctions where OMVIC contends he purchased and then later sold numerous vehicles with rolled back odometers or altered VIN’s. 

Wang was also charged by OMVIC for acting as an unregistered salesperson, where he was then convicted and fined $25,000.

OMVIC became aware of the serious allegations that led to the charges in late 2017. At that time the registrations of Min Tian and Nice Auto Sales, who operated at 4032 Finch Avenue East, Scarborough, were suspended. They have since been revoked.
